(back) Subject: May TAO, pg. 34 From: DRAWKNOB@aol.com Date: Sun, 30 May 1999 13:39:24 EDT   Since I have not received my June TAO at present I can't relate to some of the recent postings... However, I was a bit amused and bewildered by the photograph of two organists at a console (shown on page 34 in the May TAO). My question is: why would one play a recital in that manner of dress (or lack there of)? The brief article does not mention if there was a particular theme, such as "Harley Davidson and the Organ" or similar sentiments. It just appears strange to say the least...   Don't get me wrong - If I had the body that those guys have I'd wear something similar ... but for God's sake not to a recital or to the church!   John

I'm to young to be the dean of the chapter, and there are only 2 guys, and only 2 ladies. I'm not a girl, so....   Of course my middle initial is not M, it's D.

(back) Subject: Montclair State University organ dept From: J S Vanderstad <dcob@nac.net> Date: Sun, 30 May 1999 20:40:51 -0400   Dear Listers While many have given me favorable responses, I ask that you go back and look at my original question. My question was wether or not Montclair State University had an organ department or not and the scope of it, NOT how it compared to Rider or Westminster, etc. Perhaps someone who is most familiar with Montclair State (first hand even better) can put our heads straight. The reason why I would like to attend Montclair State over Rider or Westminster is the fact that unless I can get a good scholarship, I am looking at local state colleges for financial reasons as well as the fact that the biggest most expensive schools may not have the best educationally. Also, other reasons will hamper my living on campus. I have several friends who are going to Montclair State now or are transferring there this coming fall, and all have said it is an excellent college. In fact, looking at Montclairs audition info... Organ is one of the instruments listed so obviously they must have something. Please note that my main area of study is not going to be organ; it is going to be a concentration in higher education; perhaps an education major in the areas of computers and perhaps music or organ as a minor. To the one who has kindly responded in saying that he will look into Montclair's organ / music dept. on one of these lists...by all means PLEASE post your opinions. BUT PLEASE, lets stay on topic and private responses, especially those which "poke"at any university by name or whatever are not appreciated. And I thank all of those who have given me decent advice. Mr. Jan VanDerStad

I think that they were not performing at that moment, but probably preparing FOR the performance. Having lived in that town and knowing the reputation of that church, I would doubt they would been allowed to perform thusly. I'm surprised they were even allowed in the Sanctuary looking like that. We organists ought to know better. Go ahead, call me an old prude, Bruce!! --Neil, Barnegat USA

I checked the June TAO article by Jon Gillock (the Messaien guru) and he is still at Montclair. If in fact David Messineo is there, that's a double whammy you can't beat. Montclair has a good reputation in New Jersey and I would encourage you to consider it (and it's in a good town). Westminster certainly is a good school, but it is not the only music school in NJ, nor in the country. Go for it, Jan! --Neil Brown, Barnegat, NJ USA
