(back) Subject: WCC Choir Needs Perf. Sites (VA,MD,NC) From: Oboe32@aol.com Date: Sun, 12 Sep 1999 08:16:12 EDT   Dear Fellow Organists,   It has truly been a while since I've posted on either list, as school has kept me very busy. The faculty is lots of fun, all = with their strengths and weaknesses. None the less, I've had an absolute blast with my classes. It is so good to finally be doing amazing music and be so =   concentrated. I'm even practicing more! At any rate, our Chapel Choir is 125 under the direction of Dr. James Jordan. We sound phenomenal! We normaly tour through PA and OH, but this = year we have had to cancel due to our size. We are now looking for churches in = VA, MD, DE, and NC for performance sites. The prerequisites for the site are:   1. Size of site (That it will hold such a large sound) 2. Organ (35 ranks or more), and a grand piano 3. Ability to house the 125 students 4. Ability to pay the performance fee   If there is anyone who would like more info, please mail me privately with "WCC Chapel Choir" in your subject. I will be sorting mail and forwarding to Dr. Jordan. We are very much in need or sites and appreciate =   any help! As for me, I'm just having tons of fun at school!!   Pipingly, Pete Isherwood

(back) Subject: Latter-Day RC Wedding From: Bud/Burgie <budchris@earthlink.net> Date: Sun, 12 Sep 1999 14:05:56 -0700     I'd play what I always play ... Bach (Sheep, Jesu Joy) Dupre (Antiphons), Dubois (Messe de Marriage), Franck (Cantabile), etc. ... and anything in = the Concordia Wedding books ... Concordia also has some good wedding vocal = solo books (edited by Bunjes, I think), but I seldom use them, since the choir always sings for wedding ... and what they usually sing is "O Perfect = Love" for the couple's communion, and one of the zillion settings of "The Lord = Is My Shepherd" for the Psalm; if we have enough for an anthem, we usually sing something general of a praise nature ... I don't have a lot of good specifically wedding anthems.   Cheers,   Bud   CHERCAPA@aol.com wrote:   > Dear Bud, If you had a very close friend getting married, what would you > recommend in the way of music for the wedding.

(back) Subject: Concert Report (a bit long) From: Innkawgneeto@webtv.net (N Brown) Date: Sun, 12 Sep 1999 23:57:00 -0400 (EDT)   Hi friends, As I was totally wiped out from my concert last night and thus wasn't able to report to you, I will take a brief moment to do so now. As you may know, I gave a concert of "light and fluffy" organ music for the 35th anniv of our local AGO chapter, after a sumptuous buffet dinner attended by more than 100 persons. I would say close to 200 folks attended the concert (which really surprised me, as 8:00 pm is dark nowadays). The rapport between me and them was wonderful right from the start. The music turned out pretty well, I was pleased, but as I had expected, the James Biery collection, "We Walk by Faith", seemed to move the audience immensely--I was extremely pleased w/ how it came out. Oh, the Organ Symphony: I planned to do a "multi-movement" work 8-) based on 3 or 4 tunes given by members of the audience that hated organ music. Well, no one fit the bill, so I decided to have 4 persons submit themes: a clergy person, an organist, a rock music lover, and someone wearing purple (I was grasping here). They put their themes in the offering plate and I didn't look at them until it came time to actually do it. The themes submitted were: 1) How Great Thou Art, 2) Nights in White Satin, 3) Take Me Out to the Ballgame, and 4) A Might Fortress. I had trouble w/ Nights in White Satin, because I couldn't quite get it in my head, although on the way home I could sing the entire thing!! That's the way it goes, so I just did 2nd movement on the first few notes, hoped for the best. I did theme/variations on "Take Me Out to the Ballgame," which seemed to be the big hit, no pun intended. I did have fun w/ that. For the final mvt, I started w/ Ein Feste Burg but then attempted to weave the other tunes in toward to end (as I'm wont to do). I wrapped up the program w/ my now famous HB Toccata and did a very soft improv on "O Danny Boy" (Londonderry Air) for an encore --strictly on the swell 8' spitzflote (w/ sw/gt 8 and 4 as solo), and sw/pd 8 w/ 16' subbass. Heard lots of sniffles w/ that one. The other pieces have been posted previously, so I won't rehash those. Have a joyous week. --Neil Brown, Barnegat, USA
