(back) Subject: Dennis James at DTOS (Cross Post ) From: kwkeller@juno.com (KARL W KELLER) Date: Mon, 14 Sep 1998 10:24:20 -0400   Hi List members,   On Saturday, September 12th, the Dickinson Theatre Organ Society, Wilmington, Delaware opened our 30th concert season with our list member Dennis James presiding at the console of our 3/66 Kimball theatre organ. Dennis is no stranger to our area as he grew up in the Philadelphia region where he studied TO under Leonard MacClain and became house organist at both the Lansdowne and Brookline theatres (suburban Philly) before making his debut on the international circuit. Dennis holds a Bachelors and Masters degree from the Indiana University's School of Music, has played at 12 ATOS conventions, 3 national AGO conventions, and has concertized the world over. Dennis is acclaimed to be an outstanding master in accompanying the classic silent films of a bygone age when theatre organs were in their prime. As expected, Dennis treated our DTOS audience to a film which was well received by our members and friends. I won't go into details of Dennis' program other than report that every number was superbly registered and flawlessly played.   After the concert and after the on stage reception for Dennis a group of DTOSers had the opportunity to join him at a local restaurant for a bite to eat. Dennis kept us "in stitches" with tales of his travels and unique experiences while concertizing all over the world. A truly nice fellow and a credit to the lists. When Dennis plays anywhere near your area I suggest he be placed at the top of your "to do" list. You won't be disappointed.   Regards to all,   Karl Keller Secretary of DTOS with its 3/66 world class Kimball TO

(back) Subject: Rosa Rio will perform From: "John M. Doney" <jdoney@email.msn.com> Date: Mon, 14 Sep 1998 22:50:08 -0000   On October 25th at 3:00 p.m., theater organist Rosa Rio will accompany the original Phantom of the Opera at the Tampa (FL) theater, partially sponsored by the Clearwater AGO chapter. She is still going strong and when asked her age, replied "Age is a number, and mine is unlisted." What a grand gal. If you are anywhere near, don't miss it. The 3m Wurlitzer is in good condition as is the theater.   John Doney, Dean Clearwater AGO          
(back) Subject: A place for the Theatre Organ Enthusiast From: "Sean Haley" <newgershwin@hotmail.com> Date: Mon, 14 Sep 1998 22:38:27 PDT   Hello list,   Hey all you theater organ people that are lurking out there.... **WAKE UP** you might like this. On Pipechat IRC we talk about a great number of things. Tonight I was talking with another theatre organ enthusiast (I am the sort that likes both types of organs) and we realized that there was a need for all of the people that like theatre organs and the related to go and chat and relay information. I am spear heading a project to get either an e-mail list and/or IRC chat forum available for such a topic. The thing is I need to know how many people out there want such a thing. Now is your chance to **"pipe up and be heard."** If I find out that no one wants it then I won't be wasting time doing this for just myself. I think that this is a great opportunity for anyone wishing to learn more of the theatre organ, and for those that just like talking about it. Please, Please, e-mail your thoughts and ideas if you are interested. Good things come to those the speak up Hope to hear from you... _____ | | Sean M.
