Quite unexpected.   Rick      
(back) Subject: Need Music for Organ Orchestra & Chorus From: "John Vanderlee" <jovanderlee@vassar.edu> Date: Fri, 03 Nov 2000 14:15:12 -0500   Dear Pipechatters,   I've asked a similar question in the past, but this time with a slightly different twist:   Our Wurli at the Bardavon theater will be 75 years old in 2003. The = theater believes in planning ahead!   They'd like to include it in a part of the our Philharmonic Series. What has peaked the director's interest is a piece that would utilize the orchestra as well as a chorus, besides the organ. Knowing fullwel that a Wurlitzer II-10 is limited, is there anything we could pull off musically that would not come accross as too contrived? The ochestra is willing to make it part of a "light" program. Any suggestions, ideas, especially pointers to published music would be appreciated.   Thanks in advance,   John Vanderlee      
(back) Subject: Fw: Need Music for Organ Orchestra & Chorus From: "VEAGUE" <dutchorgan@svs.net> Date: Fri, 3 Nov 2000 14:28:47 -0500   Good to see this post. However, how "nice" it is for the orchestra to be willing to take part in this. Seems like hardly *any* orchestra is willing to play with a theatre organ. Animosity, maybe? Age-old dislike for orchestra/organ relations?   Several years ago, the Rialto Theatre in Joliet, Il. did a program with = the Joliet High School band/orchestra, chorus and the 4/24 Barton. Wonderful program with a combined Grand Finale!   John, I HOPE you're able to find suitabe music for such a seldom-heard program. Break a leg!   Rick     ----- Original Message ----- From: John Vanderlee <jovanderlee@vassar.edu> To: <pipechat@pipechat.org> Sent: Friday, November 03, 2000 2:15 PM Subject: Need Music for Organ Orchestra & Chorus     > Dear Pipechatters, > > I've asked a similar question in the past, but this time with a slightly > different twist: > > Our Wurli at the Bardavon theater will be 75 years old in 2003.

I believe this work is =   worthy of greater attention than it currently receives. Jerry in Seattle  
(back) Subject: Have a good meeting tonight! From: "Robert Conway" <conwayb@sympatico.ca> Date: Fri, 03 Nov 2000 17:27:00 -0500   Hi, Guys,   The Kingston Theatre Organ Society is having Dan Bellomy to play our = Kimball this evening, - so I shall not be present during the deliberations of the PipeChat IRC.   If I am back from the concert early enough, I might be able to look in, = but I am not too sure about that! As I recall, Dan Bellomy was, and maybe still = is, a member of either PipeChat-l or Piporg-L, or both, from years back, and I = am hoping to meet up with him after all these years!   Dan has played our Kimball before, several years ago, but i was not able = to be present at the concert, so I am looking forward to seeing and hearing him = for the first time.   I hope to be back in time for Monday evening's get together!   Bob Conway ...    
(back) Subject: Music for Organ Orchestra & Chorus From: "Noel Jones, AAGO" <gedeckt@usit.net> Date: Fri, 03 Nov 2000 17:26:09 -0500   The opera Cavalleria Rusticana by Pietro Mascagni has that wonderful scene outside the church for soprano soloist, chorus orchestra and the organ = from inside the church.   It would make a great unstaged concert presentation. The Intermezzo for Orchestra and Organ alone makes a great impact, but add the rest of the scene and you've got a great piece of music.   The Intermezzo for the orchestra and organ has been featured in movies, in fact, it appears on the CD Opera Goes to the Movies. While the organ is often supressed or even unheard in some recordings, once in awhile someone really uses it and it is outstanding.   The sound of the theater organ would be wonderful for this. The chorus parts are not overly difficult, and I have seen the solo and chorus from this opera show up as an Easter anthem...with altered text.   What a great opportunity, to introduce people to the orchestra, the organ, = a chorus, a soloist and opera all at one time!   --   Noel Jones, AAGO gedeckt@usit.net   Moderator, Rodgers Organ Discussion Group www.frogmusic.com/rodgersorgan.html      
(back) Subject: IRC Tonight From: "David Scribner" <david@blackiris.com> Date: Fri, 3 Nov 2000 17:53:59 -0600   This is a bit late but just a reminder that the PipeChat IRC groups meets tonight and every Friday night at 9:00 PM Eastern Time. And for those who also listen to Theatre Organ Time from Australia it is back to its regular time beginning at 9 PM Eastern Time.   If you need the information for join the IRC session, please go to the PipeChat IRC Web Page at: http://www.pipechat.org/irc.html   Hope to see some of you later on.   David  
(back) Subject: Re: Need Music for Organ Orchestra & Chorus From: <Cremona502@cs.com> Date: Fri, 3 Nov 2000 20:00:40 EST   An old chestnut/favorite is the Wilhouski "Battle Hymn of the Republic". = If you want to use light music, I would think that just about anything = that will work with a chorus would be easily arranged. "Climb Every Mountain" =   from The Sound of Music comes to mind, as well as "Doe, a deer...." which would be fun to use with the audience as well. A medly of popular songs =   from the twenties or forties might be fun as well. A section of = patriotic songs might be fun, as well.     In a message dated 11/3/00 2:16:44 PM Eastern Standard Time, jovanderlee@vassar.edu writes:   << Our Wurli at the Bardavon theater will be 75 years old in 2003.

It's an impressive instrument.   The chancel is open and moveable, so that all furniture, risers, etc., can be moved out of the way for organ concerts.   Interesting church - 5800 members, 4 Sunday services, something like 10 or 12 choirs, two full-time music personnel, lots of music volunteers.   --Shirley      
(back) Subject: Re: Music for Organ Orchestra & Chorus From: "Karl Moyer" <kmoyer@marauder.millersv.edu> Date: Fri, 03 Nov 2000 22:44:12 -0500   The opening scene from _Die Meistersinger von N=FCrnberg_ is WONDERFUL, with organ doubling the chorus in the chorale, while the orchestra plays th= e interludes (including the leitmotives), making it thus somewhat like an "extended chorale" such as is "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring."   While on this topic, I once photocopied the vocal score of Meistersinger..._, erased the text and typed in the two stanzas of Percy Dearmer's communion text fitted to this music in _New English Hymnal_ and did it as a communion anthem, one stanza chorale alone, the second with the interludes. In this case, the choir sang stanza 2 of the chorale _a cappella_ , and I used the organ for the orchestra parts as best I could.   CORDIALLY,   Karl E. Moyer Lancaster PA
