(back) Subject: Re: Lack of interest From: John Vanderlee <jovanderlee@vassar.edu> Date: Sat, 23 Oct 1999 10:26:58 -0500   Dear Chatters,   I'll add my own 2c worth   Kids are deluged with "entertainment media", which makes it ever harder = for anything to stand out. Most of them do put organs in churches, in their minds. But even if they're part of a faithful church going group they = still can't disconnect from the (relatively) rigid worship environment and make the connection to the organ as a medium of -shall we say- entertainment? Perhaps a word better than "entertainment" fits here, so feel free to substitute.   My point is that if the organ can be presented in a non-threatening, non-rigid environment (musically as well as physically) your level of interest among younger folks will grow.   I have seen the impact a theatre organ has on kids. In our theater we have bunches of them standing around watching, and asking questions at every time we play pre-show and after-show music. They get to see that it can play more than the liturgical music that they have been accustomed to hearing on an organ. In other words, I believe that the theatre organ should be the marketing tool to at least kindle a spark of interest in those who would otherwise ignore organs. Theatre organs have all the = "bells and whistles" (NO pun intended) that advertisers love to pull to get youngsters to pay attention to them. That is what makes this particular type of organ so valuable in our effort to retain the recognition that ALL organs deserve.   John V

Could they possibly be seminal to a trend?   At Ramona High School in Riverside, California (a public school), a 1-9 = Hinners has been installed and featured in the Christmas concert as played by Clay = Christiansen with the high school choir. Apparently, a parent with pipe organ = tendencies helped the students acquire the organ. Michael Barone informed me of this, = writing, ". . .. they use it for choral accompaniment and everybody in school and town = is very excited about the presence of this little, recycled American tracker = instrument . . .. and thinks of 'the organ' in a different way now, with pride and = awareness."   I will soon report more fully on the Ramona High School organ in my = column, "Organ Update," which is published in The Tracker, Journal of the Organ = Historical Society. For that column, I reported in Volume 42, Number 2:   "Blake High School, a public 'magnet' school in Tampa, Florida, dedicated = a brand new 2-10 pipe organ on March 2, 1999. Built by Heissler of Germany, the = organ is for piano students who have expressed interest. David Isele, instructor = of music at Blake and professor of organ at the University of Tampa, has three = organ students at the high school, already."   Are there other examples? How do students relate to the great theatre = organs installed in high schools, such as Dickinson and Plummer? I know of the = sad state in which exists the huge E. M. Skinner organ at Kellogg High School in = Grand Rapids (it is entirely intact and restorable, and is immediately previous to = Skinner's great organ at Girard College, Philadelphia -- itself a high school of = sorts and not a college as we infer from its name -- but the Kellogg organ is in a = padded acoustic and Girard decidedly is not). There is also a huge and unplayable = Skinner in Hollywood High School. But, is there any other good news regarding the = organ and high schools?   By the way, thanks for the nice things said on this list (where I've been = lurking for a few weeks) about Peter Sykes' recording of The Planets at Girard. I = produced that CD on my Raven label, and I'm proud of it, Peter, and recording = engineer Ed Kelly!   Bill Van Pelt Organ Historical Society

(back) Subject: Paschal Candles as flamethowers (grin) From: bud <budchris@earthlink.net> Date: Sat, 23 Oct 1999 11:20:13 -0700   Now that I've got your attention (grin):   This is in regards to Paul's church and their desire to remove a recently-renovated pipe organ and replace it with an electronic so they = can gain more space in the Vestry and spread the sound around the church more = evenly.   It seems to me there's an issue of STEWARDSHIP here. The congregation = bought the pipe organ; they paid to have it renovated. Surely some things can be = moved out of the vestry to make more space (ours is crammed with junk too), or = additional space be found elsewhere. Seems to be a pretty EXPENSIVE means of gaining a few = more feet of space.   As someone else suggested, move the pipe organ (or part of it) and = reconfigure it so it WILL fill the room evenly. Some schemes I've seen in small to = medium-sized churches:   Great and Main Pedal (Principals, Reeds) over the west doors, either in a = balcony or cantilevered; Swell and Choir or Positive in the chancel, with the = Pedal Bourdon and whatever can be borrowed from the manuals. Not ideal, but it = works.   In the case of a two-manual organ, it's also possible to duplex the Swell = to a third manual, thus giving a two-manual enclosed organ in the chancel for accompaniment and leaving the unenclosed Great and Pedal where it speaks = best: in the west end.   In chancel installations, it's often the large Great and Pedal pipes that = block the sound from the rest of the organ. This configuration also solves that.   Cheers,   Bud

A dear friend of mine, a pianist, has agreed to come and do some duet music with me at Christmas (Holy Eucharist for Christmas Eve - Episcopal church). However, my piano/organ music/repertoire is so tiny (I generally don't have another musician available to do duets, and I've just not found that much music of this genre that I really like) that the two of us have already done what I have a few years ago when he visited.   Do any of you have any suggestions of tasteful music for organ/piano duet = in print, so that I could quickly order same for the occasion?   I already know of the Liszt 4-hand arrangement of the tune "In dulci jubilo".   Thank you.   Glenda Sutton

The = school is very excited about this and the music and theater department plans to use it actively. We feel that one way to bring kids closer to a pipe organ is to place it where they are bound to come face to face with it.   Since much of the work is (carefully) done with volunteers, progress is slow, and funds are tight. If there is anyone one in this esteemed group who would want to lend some assistance in the form of taking on some restoration work, or help out with supplies, or any other way, it would be a great gesture toward the future of pipe organs.   Thanks   John V
