(back) Subject: Aeolian non-"Outside Organ" From: "rollin smith" <rollinsmithv@worldnet.att.net> Date: Tue, 18 Aug 1998 14:21:02 -0400   George Boerstler asked about the organ at "Butchart Gardens."   The Aeolian Organ, Opus 1477, was installed in Butchart’s estate, "Benvenuto" at Tod Inlet, Victoria, British Columbia. R.P. Butchart signed the contract on April 21, 1920 for II/11-ranks for $15,325. A Duo-Art player was included. The organ was sold by Aeolian’s Toronto agents, Mason & Risch Ltd. The price to them for the organ was $3,937.50. In August Butchart bought three more ranks and a Harp for $5,110. In 1928 another three ranks and a set of Chimes were added for $3,550. The estate became the Butchart Gardens. During World War II the organ was moved to Stanley Park, Vancouver. In February 1969, it was shipped back and reinstalled in the Butchart house.   Rollin Smith

Does anyone know if she is still performing? I had the lucky chance to see her show at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, Florida, probably about 1985 or 86. There are two videos available from VAI of her shows and an interview done at CBC in Toronto. Does anyone know if there are any other videos available? I understand when she was in Australia for some time she appeared regularly on the ABC in a series. Anyone know about that? Thanks. Skinwell Oakcake, (the noted Shakespearean actor)

(back) Subject: A request From: giwro@juno.com Date: Tue, 18 Aug 1998 16:29:30 -0700   Hi, fellow listers,   It is with mixed feelings that I share with you news of my resignation from my post as Minister of Music of Bethany Church. For some time now, I have felt that I didn't "fit" well with the direction that the other leadership was heading, and that my gifts and abilities did not really fit in as well as they should to complement the church. Because things were still mostly O.K., I didn't seriously seek another post. Recently, I have been wrestling with the issue of staying where I didn't fit, and praying for guidance. Today, I met with the Executive Committee and they shared with me that they had the same concerns I did - and so we agreed to part ways. I have no idea what I will do as yet - it has been several years since I left a position without another one to take its place. For those of you who believe in God, I ask that you would keep me in your prayers as I begin the search for something to do that will put bread on the table.   My apologies for the non-organic post, but I consider you folks some of my dearest friends...     *********************** Jonathan Orwig http://members.aol.com/giwro/index.html (personal) http://members.aol.com/evnsong/pgone.html (Music Publishing)   _____________________________________________________________________ You don't need to buy Internet access to use free Internet e-mail.

I saw her at Kansas University, Hoch Auditorium, in '54 or '55, and she was middle-aged then-- at least in her thirties. To think she is still performing... staggers the imagination. She had the crowd in stitches (your cue, bruce); I wonder if she inspired Victor Borge to start his act?   -- Mac Hayes "The oboe is interesting..." - G.Donald Harrison
