From: Kevin Cartwright <kevin1@alaweb.com> Date: Wed, 27 May 1998 21:36:46 -0500   I know some people will read this story and have the uncontrolable urge to write back "this is a thing that will happen many times in your career..." PLEASE don't. Thank you.   I'm in the handbell choir at church (well, tonight was my last performance before I quit for good). We went to the FUMC, Brewton, AL to play for their handbell choir and any congregation that wanted to show up. They have a nice pipe organ with a beautiful set of working facade pipes. From a basic look-at-the-console count, I would say it has about 13 ranks, give or take a few. The organist was not there. but, I've heard she thinks anyone other than her that sits at the console will break the thing. As well, the man in charge of the organ in general was not there. The only woman left was the music director. She would not let me play it because the organist is so picky, and she thinks she would die if the organist found out. So, all I could do was look at it.   I was a little offended, but I guess...that will happen a lot.   Kevin C. kevin1@alaweb.com

The attitude of the organist is most deplorable. No wonder there are so few organists today in smaller towns. I always leave the key in my organ (a Moller, 2/15 tracker), and permission to play it..... if you ever get to Monroe, LA... Northminster Church is welcoming to any organist who wants to try the organ.   Sand Lawn
