(back) Subject: Los Angeles Orpheum Wurlitzer x-post From: "R. Obert" <sam14@ix.netcom.com> Date: Mon, 20 Apr 1998 10:15:25   On Wedensday April 8th. The Los Angeles Times Life & Style section had a third of it's front page given over to an article on the Orpheum theater and it's Wurlitzer pipe organ. This article happened to co-incide with an already planned concert commemorating the 70th anniversary of the installation of the organ which had it's first concert in April 1928. This is the last original Wurlitzer organ installation in the L.A. area. The article, written by Susan Carpenter, included 3 color photographs was well written and included information about this organ and mentioned several others in the area. It also included some history of the Wurlitzer company and had a good plug for the Theaater Organ Society. The article ended with the announcement of the concert by Bob Salisbury, (The resident organist of the Casino Theater in Avalon), which will take place Sat. April 25th. 1998 at 9:30 AM. The theater is at 9th. and Broadway and tickets are $5.00 with children under 16 free. We have received hundreds of calls resulting from this article and the concert hopfully will be well attended. The organ community needs much more of this kind of exposure to keep the PUBLIC aware that the pipe organ is still alive and mostly well. By the way the Life & Style section is the one that contains the comic section so all the Times readers had to see it!

If it's organs you're thinking of, you are probably refering to the Anglical Cathedral... very impressive ... it took about 70 years to build it. What do you want to know?

The name is taken from the extinct Liver bird, which once frequented a pool there. The city is famous for the Cunard Steamship Line, horseracing and the Beatles. There are two cathedrals -- an Anglican one and a Roman Catholic one. The Anglican Cathedral, designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, is the world's largest Gothic church. The Anglican Cathedral in Liverpool has a large five-manual Henry Willis III organ -- the largest pipe organ in England. The Catholic Cathedral, dating from the 1960's is shaped like a wigwam and has interesting modern stained glass. It has a four-manual J. W. Walker & Sons organ.   John.

It seems that just befor Easter, (and Holy week), the Dean fired Dr. Neary. I am not sure why but it was listed in the Anglicans-on-line. I understand that Martin Neary is going to fight it in court. I will let you know more as I hear.

(back) Subject: Latest Developments From: Kevin Cartwright <kevin1@alaweb.com> Date: Mon, 20 Apr 1998 19:13:02 -0500   Several of you have been asking how the pipe organ project is doing. So, I figured I'd enlighten everyone; who knows, someone on the lists might have a HELPFUL comment (please, no attacking).   First, I'm looking for the address of a St. Louis technician named D.L. Bullock. If anyone can help, please do so.   Now, so far, all is well. My mother has finally said "Y'all do whatever y'all want to" (my mother referring to my father and I as "y'all"). So, we are on our own, and ready to get started. For those who don't know, we have found a 3 rank [sets of pipes] Wicks pipe organ in St. Louis MO, and are preparing to buy it. We are working through the Organ Clearing House, who has been of great help. The organ is located at the Episcopal Church of the Epiphany in St. Louis, and we are currently in contact with the church itself.   The organ- The main chest is 7' wide, 2' deep, and stands 5'3" tall WITH the pipes. There are no offsets, but I am trying to buy a 12 note Bourdon 16' chest for some Bourdons I might be getting to replace the quinting for the Bourdon 16' stop. There is a similar organ here in Greenville, and from what I can gather, everything is perfect for a practice situation, but it's SubBass 16' is a reed box, not quinting. The reservoir and tremulant is 2' by 2'3", and stands 2' tall. The blower box is about 2' by 1' and about 1.5' tall. I don't have true console dimensions yet, but it is said to be of standard "console size" if you consider the full AGO 2m w/pedals console. I'll send specs and more info when I get it.   The business end- There is some timber we are selling because the years have rolled around to the traditional generational "harvest time." We are waiting to see how much money that brings in before we go about getting it in other means. I am also getting 12 Bourdons in the deal, but I need a chest. (ignorance note: Bourdons are pedal pipes that give a "rumbling" 16' sound. They are actually about 8' tall because they have a stopper in just the right place, and that "muffles the sound down an octave." A chest is the wooden 'airbox' the pipes sit on. This supplies air to the pipe, and has the valves that open and close, determining if the pipe sounds or not. Less aggresive Bourdons have been developed for placement on manuals [or keyboards].) I found a nice chest for $250, but I would like to pay a little less. Anyone have one of these things they want to get rid of??   So, for those of you who STILL don't know what's going on, I'm getting a pipe organ. I play every Sunday night at the First United Methodist Church in Greenville, Alabama, and I have to have five pieces ready each week. Being sort of new to the playing scene, I can't really perfect five pieces with two hours of practice each week. We considered a "nice" electronic...that is, it was nice until I played it. It sounded HORRIBLE. Nothing whatsoever like a pipe organ. So, why not get the real thing for the same price?? So, that's what I'm doing. It is small enough (and hopefully quiet enough) that I can move it to college in two years (say a dorm or an apartment...maybe a mobile home).   Please send questions and/or comments! Any interesting technical answers will be posted to both lists.   For now,   Kevin Cartwright Secondary Organist, First United Methodist Church Greenville, Alabama kevin1@alaweb.com      
(back) Subject: #*Poulenc Concerto Performance From: pniki@firstavenue.com Date: Mon, 20 Apr 1998 23:33:59 -0500   This Sunday, April 26, I will be performing the Poulenc Concerto at my church, St. Peter's Lutheran, 49 Queen Street North, Kitchener, Ontario at 8 pm. Freewill offering. We had a first rehearsal tonight. It is sounding pretty good if I do say so myself!   The program will also include the Schubert Mass in G. The Poulenc is actually a "filler" since we needed to round out the concert which will be the culmination of a choral workshop weekend conducted by Dr. Mark Sirett of Kingston, Ontario. We will have workshop/rehearsals all day on Saturday. The choir is made up of St. Peter's and St. Matthews Lutheran choirs as well as other interested choristers. There should be about 60 singing. The orchestra is made up mainly of members of the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony Orchestra, a fully professional orchestra serving this region. Anyone in the area would be most welcome at the concert. The more the merrier. If you are interested in attending the workshop as an observer, contact me. A modest fee of $10 will apply. Coffee at 9:30 Saturday, rehearsals start at 10 am and will go till 4 with a break for lunch. Mark Sirett is widely regarded as one of Canada's finest choral conductors and is also being published a lot these days by Augsburg Fortress and Canadian International Music.   Peter Nikiforuk     Message routed through FIRSTline's SMTP Gateway.   First Avenue Information Systems Inc.

(back) Subject: 1976-ish Allen Church Organ [X-posted] From: ComposerTX <ComposerTX@aol.com> Date: Tue, 21 Apr 1998 00:46:43 EDT   Can anyone who has experience with voicing an Allen of this vintage tell me in which ways the tones can be voiced -- for color, individual volume, attack, etc? Thanks for any help. Danny Ray ComposerTX@AOL.com

I began on a Hammond in my home church, and spent MANY Saturdays playing the organ ALL DAY. I still enjoy sitting down and trying to come up with new combinations. Hope you enjoy your stay on the list, and I hope you enjoy LOTS of mail. All the best, Danny Ray ComposerTX@AOL.com
