(back) Subject: The Severance Chambe (cross posted) From: "Mike Gettelman" <mike3247@earthlink.net> Date: Wed, 23 May 2001 00:07:52 -0400   On Thursday, May 31, I will have the honor and privilege to attend a performance of the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra and the Norton Memorial Organ in performance of Saint-Saens "Organ Symphony" and Jongen "Symphonie Concertante.   The unique aspect of this concert experience is I have been invited to attend from behind the facade, in the pipe chamber. Frankly, I get shiver chills just thinking about feeling the sound waves. To view the inner workings of the instrument during the dynamics of performance will   be an awesome experience.   I invite you all to share this unique adventure with me. I am writing this preview as a kind of alert to anybody interested to offer any advice or suggestions on how to get the most out of from this learning experience. I will be taking pictures on my digital camera, and   have already secured a host who will make the pictures available to everyone visiting his site.   All in all, this will be a wonderful experience for me because this will be my first time ever inside a pipe chamber, and I'm sure I will have much to report following the concert. I sincerely hope everyone has   fun with this thread, and I welcome all your input as I plan for and experience the organic adventure of a lifetime. I am sharing this post with several of the organ lists to which I belong, so I apologize slightly for sucking up the bandwidth.   Have fun and be happy--I sure am   Mike Gettelman
