There are some excellent choirs in this state which are all = volunteer as far as I know. Certainly the church choirs are volunteer except for = some who may pay their lead singers in each section. The Anglican Cathedral in = the capital city has in this state scholarships for the boys but it could = hardly be described as a professional choir unless the situation has changed = recently. Bob E.

(back) Subject: Choir Schedule From: "Peter Gilmour" <pgilmour@corpcom.co.nz> Date: Mon, 30 Oct 2000 06:57:40 +1300   The church choir situation described by Bob Elms in Western Australia fits here in new Zealand too. The cathedral and major parish choirs are = virtually entirely amateur, yet many of them are ferociously good as can be proved = by various CDs! Only the directors of music, assistant organists (there, I'm back on topic) and organ scholars are paid. It is remarkable what can be done with singers of talent and dedication under first class leadership. Peter Gilmour Our Lady Star of the sea Howick, Auckland New Zealand

The website is not totally clear on this...   "RTOS was originally formed to rescue a Wurlitzer 4/21 (opus 1951) from = the luxurious downtown RKO Palace Theater, just before that 2916-seat = luxurious movie house fell to the wrecking ball of urban renewal. That instrument, = now a 4/22, was moved to the 2574-seat Auditorium Theater (now Auditorium Center) where it has been used to present more than 290 concerts for more than 350,000 attendees. 112 organists from the United States, Canada, = United Kingdom and Australia have provided the music for these events. Albums = have been produced on this Wurlitzer by Tom Grierson, Leonard Mac Clain, Don Scott, Alan Mills, Dennis James, Hector Olivera, Billy Nalle, Rob Calcaterra, Dick Leibert, Don Thompson, David Reese and Robert Wolfe."   -- and the other --   "RTOS installed a Wurlitzer 3/8 (opus 1492) in the 400-seat Eisenhart Auditorium located on the campus of the Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC). It was dedicated and presented to the RMSC on Columbus Day (quite suitable for an opus 1492) in 1978. This instrument, which originally came from the Capitol Theater in Worcester, Massachusetts, has now been = expanded to 12 ranks. The most recent addition, in December 1996, was a 61-pipe Clarinet rank. This instrument has been used for dance parties, Mardi Gras celebrations, Halloween parties, pizza parties and other fun events. The RMSC and RTOS have jointly produced elementary school age education = programs on this instrument. This instrument was used for regularly scheduled membership concerts for almost two years while the 4-manual Auditorium Center console was completely refurbished. In all, more than 50 RTOS-sponsored major events using 25 theater organists and with more than 15000 attendees have been held using this 3/12 Wurlitzer. The Rochester Museum and Science Center has also employed this instrument for many of their programs."   ....   It's all here - the big brass sound of 'St Louis Blues', the waltzing strings of Strauss, the snare drums and whistling of the 'Colonel Bogey March', the sweet throaty resonance of 'Mood Indigo', the ragtime piano, = the sounds of the Big Band Era and the full orchestral sound of Hollywood and Broadway hits. A showcase of great melody and music with a big beat!   Imagine you are seated in Rochester's Auditorium Center. The lights grow dim. Suddenly out of the proscenium arches descends the music of 1500+ pipes, trumpets, drums, shimmering strings or marimbas. You are enveloped = in sound as the spotlight finds a single artist at the white and gold console rising from the orchestra pit to stage level. You are in for an evening of musical entertainment. On occasion, an old fashioned sing-along is part of the fun.or, perhaps a short Charlie Chaplin or Harold Lloyd silent film comedy is included with theater organ accompaniment and sound effects. First-class musical entertainment by the top theater organists from around the U.S.A. and worldwide- - - This is Theater Organ Alive and Well in Rochester!                 _____NetZero Free Internet Access and Email______ http://www.netzero.net/download/index.html
