If Equus closes in three weeks and they bring in the next CATS...   NJ

We need to answer some questions From: "Vic Ferrer" <vicferrer@pobox.com> Date: Wed, 07 Feb 2001 16:52:10 -0800   John writes:   I, too, am glad to see these new organs going into the concert halls. My question is - once the opening hoopla is over, how much are they going to be used?   I also wonder just how often these expensive new instruments will be used. I live in San Francisco and the organ at Davies Hall is rarely used. Aside from the fact that the Davies Hall organ has a bad reputation among organists, the general public is not aware of this, = and yet there are no concerts on the instrument and probably no demand fr= om the public to ever hear it. If no touring concert organist wants to p= lay this organ, and its too expensive to open the hall for local performe= rs as a result of unions et al., then why was it ever installed?   If the Davies Hall organ is a failure then why is no one being held accountable? If no one is held accountable then what will prevent the next big organ failure? What message does this send out to the world about investing in municipal organs or concert hall organs?   I think the bigger questions to be asked are: What are the reasons wh= y the general public doesn't like organ music? Or at the very least, doesn't ever consider it an option for entertainment? Could it be tha= t organ music has the reputation as being boring, and dull? And if so, why? Could it be as simple as its rare portrayal on television as che= esy and churchy, an instrument used only for funerals and soap-opera weddings? Or is it more a result of our own undoing in how concerts a= re programmed? Can a concert be exciting to both the hard core organ enthusiast and the general public...or have we given up on the genera= l public?   Could it be that maybe the organ needs some good PR? Or even marketin= g if you will?     Or will they only be used to play the Saint-Saens every so often. Th= ey need to be heard.   With all these new organs being sold, are the builders who benefit fr= om all these sales investing in the future of the pipe organ? (I mean th= e pipe organ in the general sense of the word) Are grants and endowment= s being established for the purpose of promoting pipe organs and ensuri= ng a future audience? Or is the instrument itself supposed to be a legac= y handed down to future generations?   And if that is so, then why are so many pipe organs locked up by thei= r keepers. Why isn't it a common courtesy in America to share pipe orga= ns with interested parties and budding young organists more often? Why d= oes the instrument become the private toy of but a few? How can this kind= of thinking possibly propagate any interest in the organ?   With public schools stopping their music programs, record companies phasing out their classical divisions, public radio stations easing a= way =66rom classical music (and some trying to dump PipeDreams), and clas= sical radio stations refusing to play organ music because they think they w= ill lose their audience...is there hope?   Will there be a municipal type organist a la Portland and San Diego t= hat will give concerts?   The San Francisco Art Commission's arm had to be twisted by the board= of supervisors to allocate some funding to the proposed Exposition Organ project. The Art Commission argued that =93the organ did not meet the= ir definition as art=94 and therefore they were not going to distribute = said funds. This ridiculous defense was shredded by the SF board of supes. The result...the Arts Commission was more-or-less embarrassed into promising the funds.   If arts organizations (who support some widely questionable examples = of art by the way) don't even see the organ as art or artful, then we ar= e really up against some tough challenges my friends.   I think municipal organists provide THE BEST opportunity for the orga= n to be heard by a lot more people then just those who attend churches with organs. The organ community (if it can be defined as such) SHOUL= D get organized and lobby cities to include municipal organists as part= of their arts/cultural civic programs. San Diego's Spreckles Organ Socie= ty is a prime example of successful organization and promotion. I've attended their Monday night outdoor organ concerts and was shocked wh= en I saw 1300 people sitting in lawn chairs with wine and cheese listeni= ng to the organ. Yes, its acoustics weren't perfect and airplanes flew b= y during pianissimo segments, but the largely non-organist, non-organ b= uff audience thoroughly enjoyed the concerts and consistently turns out every Monday night during the summer. What can we learn from this success?   Maybe we and the AGO can work toward this. Local chapters could push this effort.   I agree, it would seem that an organization such as the American Guil= d of Organists would be the ideal platform for launching such a campaig= n. Yes, they have POE and POE+ and local chapters may sponsor concerts n= ow and then, but is this really reaching out further than to those alrea= dy interested in the pipe organ? And yes, reaching those INTERESTED in t= he pipe organ IS an important thing, it needs to be done in order to capture the few new hearts who are open to the magic of the instrumen= t. But if we wait for the AGO or whomever to spear head this then we mig= ht be waiting a long time. Maybe the AGO needs to have a new arm of the organization, exclusively devoted to promoting the organ through new media, television, the Internet, video, film and print? Maybe this ne= w arm can finally do what has not yet been successfully accomplished...actually convey the MAGIC of the pipe organ to new audiences; build new interest in that which is enduring; harness the talents, contacts and lobbying power of the thousands of us who want = the pipe organ and organ music will persevere.   But how about this thought...Is our passion getting in the way of our progress? By this I mean, as a group, are we weakened by the tracker = vs. EP, pipe vs. digital, baroque vs. romantic in-fighting? As our base o= f organists, historians, builders, authors, teachers, composers and historic instruments disappears? Will OUR generation squander the opportunity to actually have contributed something to the future of t= he organ?   Any ideas?     Vic Ferrer

(back) Subject: Re: Is there hope? We need to answer some questions From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Wed, 7 Feb 2001 21:02:24 EST   Hi Vic:   I didn't read everything, but I caught the jist. Yes, Davies Hall is a bad organ, poorly conceived, and even more poorly executed.   Do we need to include the ticket paying public when putting a recital together? Yes! Academia has just about killed off our audience. Do we need to consider them? You'd better bet, because through them we can pay our bills. Satisfying ourselves alone, and preaching to the unwashed is our ultimate undoing. I've heard standards until I'm blue in the face, give'um what they like to hear and they will come to hear you! It's the difference between success and failure!   I guess the question is do we opt for success or failure? We have such refined tastes, the public needs to be coaxed along! We will listen to just about any avant guarde nonsense, the public won't. I've even walked out of recitals where I thought, is this guy or gal playing for me or for him/her self. When I decided this was a bravura, speed and cruise, I walked out and slammed the door on occasion. What arrogance! I'm sorry, but this needs to sink in!   Is there hope? Try pleasing your listeners and over time see what happens when you play a recital. Remember, you get paid whether the audience likes it or not. However if you get called less and less to play recitals, I would do some rethinking about my role in the recital business.   Regards,   Ron Severin

Barring that just wire it up to the AUX of the receiver. No one else is offering any advice so I thought I'd throw my 2 cents in. Let me know what =   happens.   Good luck:   Alan B
