Yes, He does work in mysterious ways.   However, if anyone watched the Cowboys/Redskins game yesterday, and if = they were watching closley, with only 4 mins. remaining in the 4th quarter = they got an "organ-ing". Let's just say that the network broke to a = commercial message post haste!   I wonder what that means?   John   PS: My organ fared well yesterday... however, during the service the 8' = trumpet did some rather weird things ... Does anyone have an 8' Oboe or = Clairnet to trade for a very buzzy Trumpet (low wind pressure)?  
(back) Subject: Re: Hollywood High School From: MWORGLBAU@aol.com Date: Tue, 26 Oct 1999 03:21:47 EDT   Dear Bill, Bob and list,   Sorry for the delay in responding. Had several hops this weekend = (more than I had expected) which put things behind schedule for me.   "There is also a huge and unplayable Skinner in Hollywood High = School."   I wouldn't exactly call it huge. 3 manual and 37 ranks I don't think constitutes huge. But it is historically important, and at the moment, unplayable.   "Michael Williamson, alumnus of Hollywood High and principle of Williamson-Warne in Los Angeles"   Class of 1978, and it's Williamson-Warne & Associates of Hollywood = :-).   "Alas, he's over on pip-ARGUE-l. Perhaps, someone with dual = citizenry could ask him about that status of this organ."   I'm here as well :-). I do cross subscribe (or is that cross..... I don't know).   The organ at Hollywood High School, an E.M. Skinner, opus 481, of = 1924 was paid for by money raised by the student body, putting on Peter Pan at = the Hollywood Bowl. Louis Vierne played his only Southern California = performance at Hollywood High in 1927, and Edwin Lemare played his last public performance at Hollywood High School while his daughter, Mary, was = attending school there in 1931. Other famous organists have played there, including Virgil Fox.   The organ was in reasonably good playing condition until the = Northridge earthquake of 1994. The organ survived fairly well, basically sustaining damaged in the form of a few broken pipes, and a couple of racks that = pulled out of the wall. What no one realized is that the earthquake had damaged = the roof above both of the organ chambers, and when we experienced a heavy = winter rain the following week, both organ chambers took on a lot of water and severely damaged the mechanisms. As the wheels of government grind ever so =   slowly, the school is still awaiting much promised funding for the organ's =   repair. They have indicated that funding should be forthcoming soon (and = they have been saying this for 2 years). I sincerely hope that something = happens soon, as Hollywood High will celebrate their 100th anniversary in 2003. I will keep the list posted to updates.     Michael R.
