(back) Subject: Re: [SecondTouch] COS Web Site From: <NAShepherd@aol.com> Date: Mon, 6 Mar 2000 17:03:53 EST   Press release: Immediate   NEW ORGAN SOCIETY FOR WESTERN-SUPER-MARE ODEON CINEMA   Following the closure of the Bristol Theatre Organ Group, sponsors of the Compton theatre organ concerts in the Odeon cinema, Weston Super Mare, the =   Bristol based "West of England School of Music" has taken over the organisation of the concerts and organ based activities that have for so = many years been part of the entertainment scene in the town.   With effect from this week, a new non profit making group - "The West of England Theatre Organ Society" will be formed, to run a regular programme = of concerts based around the fine three manual 6 rank Compton Cinema organ in =   the Odeon, as well as to oversee the maintenance of the instrument.   Local concert goers were saddened when the regular concert series was cancelled a few weeks ago, due to the closure of the Bristol Theatre Organ =   Group, mainly due to the fact that out of a committee of five, four were = over the age of 70 and they felt that younger people really ought to take over = the reigns.   Principal of the West of England School of Music, thirty five year old professional musician Neil Shepherd said this week that "The Bristol = Theatre Organ Group has done an excellent job of promoting the concerts and maintaining the instrument over the last 8 years - the organ is in an excellent condition and will continue to delight concert goers and holiday =   makers for many years to come". He added, "The Odeon management are very = keen to see the organ flourish and in addition to the regular concerts, at the suggestion of the manager, Duncan Scott, we are hoping to add a nostalgic touch by showing old silent movies from time to time, with organ accompaniment, bringing back memories of the days of the silent screen".   Concerts begin again on Sunday 14th May at 12.30pm with a concert by Blackpool based organist Peter Jebson, extremely well known on the concert =   circuit for his "bright and breezy" Blackpool style of playing, bringing = back memories of Reginald Dixon! "The programme for the rest of the year is presently being formulated, with concerts being held on a monthly basis = now, rather than bimonthly, thanks to the willingness of the cinema management" =   stated Neil Shepherd. Neil added, "We are aiming to make the most of the = fine instrument in the Odeon, one of two in Odeon cinemas still in situ - the other one being the organ in the Odeon Leicester Square, London".   The forthcoming concert series will feature some of the top cinema = organists in the country. Neil Shepherd would be delighted to hear from people who would be interested in becoming members of the society, particular people interested in the technical side of the organ maintenance as well as those =   who wish to help with organisation, administration, front of house = financial and other jobs!   Neil can be contacted on (0117) 908-2567 or by e-mail: = nashepherd@aol.com.   The first concert: Sunday May 14th at 12.30pm - Peter Jebson (Blackpool) followed on Sunday June 25th at 12.30pm with a concert by Donald McKenzie from the Odeon Leicester Square. The concerts for the rest of the year are =   being booked at the moment - further details will be available shortly.

(back) Subject: practice organ wanted From: "Carlo Pietroniro" <concert_organist@hotmail.com> Date: Mon, 6 Mar 2000 23:12:42 -0500   Good evening,   I don't know if I'm going to get anywhere with this, but = it's worth a shot and I'll never know unless I ask, so.............A student of mine needs a practice organ in her home. I offered her my Baldwin C-116E, but then I realized that she needs 2 61-note manuals and at least a = 30-note pedalboard, although 32 would be better. If there's anyone living anywhere remotely near to Montreal with an organ for sale that meets those requirements, I would greatly appreciate knowing about it. There are some very nice organs on e-bay, but they're mostly too far away. Thanks............   Carlo
