(back) Subject: what a wonderful concert!!! From: "Carlo Pietroniro" <concert_organist@hotmail.com> Date: Sat, 01 Jan 2000 13:31:10 EST   Happy 2000 everyone,   I hope your computers are all working okay. Last night's = concert was a huge success. It was held at 19h30, followed by a New Year's Eve = party in the hall. There were over 500 at the concert. Most went down to the = dance afterwards, a few went home. My choice of music was praised by my organist =   friends who attended. I like to give the audiences a taste of something different. Most of the organ concerts around here consist of the same ol' music by the same ol' composers (Bach, Couperin, Widor, Vierne, etc), but = I like to play the lesser-known pieces and it always goes over well. The highlight of the concert (for me anyway) was the finale from "Concerto Gregoriano" by Pietro Yon. I've loved that piece from the first time I = ever heard it and I love playing it. It's a great way to end a concert and a wonderful way to bring in the new year! At the beginning of the evening I stated that the concert was dedicated to the members of 2 groups to whom I'll always be endebted to; Pipechat and Organchat. I also stated that anyone with internet access should consider joining so they too can = benefit from the vast universe of knowledge that these groups possess. I also dedicated each piece to the person or persons who provided me with the music. The names may have meant nothing to the audience, but they mean a = lot to me. Once again, thanks to everyone who helped make this and so many = other of my concerts possible. And now, I must go and prepare for today. We're having 30 or so people over for supper! Bonne Ann=E9e!!!!!!!!   Carlo ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com

(back) Subject: New Year Organ Programs (cross-posted) From: "Bonnie Beth Derby" <orge@dreamscape.com> Date: Sat, 1 Jan 2000 20:10:24 -0500   Happy New Year to all!   I have had a wonderful time this evening reading through the postings of recitals, concerts and services formed around this special New Year. = After spending an evening taking part in a musical program in Syracuse, New = York, it was really fun to glance through to see what was going on in a number = of celebrations. The musical selections looked great! I wish that there was = a way to hear all of the performances. Maybe in the not-to-distant future this idea will be possible. Just think how far we came in the past = century!   And, Carlo, thanks for the dedication! That is a feather in our cap!   Did anyone watch the all-day (and evening) affair on PBS? The fireworks = in Sydney, Paris and London were spectacular!! I just wish that PBS could = have covered an organ selection or two from the number of churches and = cathedrals that had them across the globe.   My best to all for a happy, healthy and musical 2000.   Bonnie Beth Derby Producer & Host ``Orgelwerke'' & ``Choral Traditions'' WCNY-FM, 91.3; Syracuse; WUNY-FM, 89.5, Utica; WJNY-FM, 90.9, Watertown Organist, First Church of Christ, Scientist, Syracuse (1927 E.M.
