Are they in one campus? = How > many in the church? > Gee, I ask a lot of questions.. > > Rick   Well for one thing, SU has four on campus (Holtkamp in Crouse, Holtkamp in the chapel, two small practice organs in rooms 210 and 211 in Crouse). My practice schedule is pre-set with a secretary and can't be moved, but = that's usually only one to two hours. If I want to practice more than that it's either on the piano, or very late at night. I live -far- from campus, so coming in late is pretty inconvenient (although I do it a lot).   I can't imagine having 26 organs around...one's bound to be free sooner or later during the day. Anywho, let me dig out the Westminster = application...   OK I lied, there's only 21. But this is what it says: "There are 21 pipe organs at Westminster Choir College, including our 1935 Aeolian-Skinner (restored 1983), a Casavant (1969), a Fisk (1978), and others by = Beckerath, Flentrop, Holtkamp, Moeller, Noack, Phelps, and Schantz."   I assume a lot of those are practice organs, but you won't see me complaining.   -Rebekah
