(back) Subject: Re: Disney organ From: "Mark Huth" <mhuth@rodgers.rain.com> Date: Thu, 1 Jul 1999 09:36:11 PST       I find it interesting that nearly everyone is already dismissing this instrument out-of-hand. I'll agree that the facade is somewhat challenging to people who know what has historically been done in organ design, but no one has once applauded the fact that a pipe instrument has been included in one of the country's most well-visited concert halls. Would you rather that there be no pipe organ whatsoever?   Many children will have an opportunity to hear and see this instrument. From the reputation of the Rosales firm (and from what I know first-hand of him and his work), this organ should be top-notch. Isn't this something to be pleased about?   I think we should be happy that a pipe organ has been placed there, even enjoying the fact that it's appearance will certainly leave a lasting impression. In an age when we're rueing the fact that children have no exposure or appreciation of pipe organs, isn't it a positive step that an instrument such as this has been included in the new hall?   I happen to be a big sports fan, as well, and I remember when Disney bought an NHL franchise. When they announced it would be called the Anaheim Mighty Ducks, NHL management and fans cried out, asserting it was a horrible name which would never bring respect to the team and the league. Everyone talked about tradition and how people who understood what the NHL was "all about" would ever think to use such a juvenile moniker for something as historic as an NHL franchise.   Disney simply smiled and said, "You can tell us all you like about how to play hockey, but don't tell us how to market and present a product."   Today, the Anaheim Mighty Ducks is a huge success, with an extremely loyal =   following the world over. Their logo merchandise over the past few years has been outsold by only one other team (and narrowly at that), the Chicago Bulls during the Michael Jordan era.   Nearly everyone in the NHL has admitted that they didn't understand the method behind the "Mighty Ducks" madness, and agrees that Disney has done a remarkable job. Other new teams created by relocation or expansion (the =   Nashville Predators and the Carolina Hurricanes, for example), haven't had =   nearly the same success in building team recognition.   Perhaps this pipe facade will be another in a long tradition of Disney successes. While it challenges my idea of what a pipe organ looks like, I =   LOVE the fact that an organization which has captured the hearts and imagination of countless throngs of children and adults has chosen to embrace the concept of an organ in a concert hall. I can imagine children =   returning from a trip to the concert hall will show a new found respect for the organ in our church.   And that is more than enough for me.   Best regards,       Mark Huth Rodgers Instruments, LLC mhuth@rodgers.rain.com http://www.rodgersinstruments.com   =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D   Actual ad in a newspaper: 'And now, the Superstore--unequaled in size, unmatched in variety, unrivaled inconvenience.'

But it's going to be an interesting little construction project, I'd like to see how they're going to keep = those pipes in those positions and keep them tuned. Gravity is very dependable, it always wins. You're right, they are the experts at marketing.

Next century here we come!! I can see it now--the Rainbow Pipes and their Colorful Music! Hey this is on the wrong list, we need to take this one over to TheatreOrgans, they'll have a great time!

(back) Subject: Wedding and Funeral Legalities From: "STRAIGHT " <STRAIGHT@infoblvd.net> Date: Thu, 1 Jul 1999 14:06:03 -0400   No need for seminary, at least not legally in NY. Discovered something = very interesting last month at the church Council meeting. Funerals can be conducted by anybody, and in NY a legal wedding can be performed by anyone who "has been given charge of a group of people". That's where the = captain comes in, and we discovered that our Lay Interim can do perfectly legal weddings. We were discussing the different aspects of having a lay person serve = as Interim. Without a resident pastor, Presbytery sends a representative to the monthly meetings. This man has been specializing in this area for = some years, and is quite knowledgeable. I think he is or was a lawyer. He = says the law in NY is very lax in the wedding area, it's very unusual, = different from most other states. And there are no legal or Presbyterian = requirements concerning a funeral. It's fun, because every time he comes up with something like this, he adds "and the Baptists do whatever they want to", and everybody laughs. This is the union church, they are independently incorporated, and it bugs the Presbytery, so there's a bit of friction that's been going on for = years. The Presbytery covers a wide area, and includes quite a bit of city area, but we're real rural hill country and quite a ways out from their offices. Just keeping life interesting! These people are very proud of the fact that they have been able to = maintain a successful union of people from different denominations for a long time, and they work at it. Half of them are retired heads of departments at the local colleges, and they don't take being bullied. They just laugh and start planning the next project, pastor or no pastor. They still haven't decided what to do about communion next time. = Still hoping for a new minister. Another tidbit - about half of the churches in the Presbytery are = union churches of some kind, mostly Baptist and Presbyterian, some Methodists involved. Economy has gone down and people couldn't afford to maintain so many big old buildings in all the small towns, they all slowly have had to let the buildings in the poorest condition go and get together to keep one in good condition and useable.   Diane S.

I seem to recall the Walker at Liverpool (R.C.) Cathedral of Christ the King also contains pipes of several different metallic colors.   John Speller, St. Louis, Mo.
