WHAT: Special demonstration and performance of historic Casavant pipe = organ=3D20=3D in Jacoby Symphony Hall at the Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts WHEN: MONDAY, JANUARY 15, 2001 AT 3:30 P.M.   WHERE: Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts - Water Street Entrance.

SunTrust is the proud sponsor of the Jacksonville Symphony's Organ = Gala=3D20 Weekend (Concert dates - Friday, March 16 and Sunday, March 18, 2001). On Monday afternoon, January 15 at 3:30 p.m., you're invited to be one of = th=3D e=3D20 first to hear the majestic sounds of Casavant Opus 553, which is nearly = completely=3D20 installed in Jacoby Symphony Hall. Jacksonville is now among an exclusive tier = of=3D20 cities with a world-class concert hall and major pipe organ, and has=3D20 undertaken something that no other city in the United States has ever done! The Jacksonville Symphony is the country's first orchestra to restore = an=3D20 extant North American concert organ and install it into a new concert hall. With a total of 6,215 pipes, Opus 553 is one of the largest concert organs = i=3D n=3D20 the world. Its tonal palette is almost infinite and its volume of sound = is=3D20 colossal. William Neil, organist of the National Symphony Orchestra, making a = special=3D20 visit from Washington, D.C., will perform the magnificently restored instrument. Representatives from the Jacksonville Symphony, SunTrust, and organ = consulta=3D nt Jeff Weiler will be available for interview. Pipe Organ Facts: Built in 1912 by Casavant Fr=3DE9res in St. Hyacinthe, Quebec Original location: First Baptist Church in Syracuse, New York Designated as Opus 553, it is one of the largest concert organs in the = world=3D .. Total cost of restoration and installation: $1.3 million 6,215 pipes; 94 ranks of pipes; 80 speaking stops; Four-manual console. Length of pipes: Range from 3/8 of an inch to 32 feet; Weight: nearly 50 = ton=3D s. Organ consultant: Jeff Weiler of Wichita, Kansas. Two-year restoration process: Quimby Pipe Organs in Warrensburg, Missouri   =3D3D=3D3D=3D3D=3D3D This afternoon I attended the above event. It was well-attended by = the=3D20 media, fortunately for whom it was initially intended, complete with=3D20 reporters and cameras from two television stations and several print = media.   The program was introduced very enthusiastically by Susan Pelter, Jax=3D20 Symphony Orch. Communications Director. Alan Hopper, the new = Executive=3D20 Director of JSO also spoke very enthusiastically about the project and = the=3D20 organ in particular. =3D20   Jeff Weiler, the consultant, spoke on the history and significant of = the=3D20 instrument, and Jonathan Abrosino assisted William Neil, National = Symphony=3D20 Orch organist, in demonstrating the organ, playing various pieces of=3D20 transcription and literature. =3D20   The stoplist follows: GREAT: 16 Double Open Diapason (1-19 in facade), Gemshorn **(ext); 8 Open Diapason I (1-12 facade), Open Diapason II (1-12 facade), = Geigen=3D20 Principal, Flute Harmonic, Doppelflote, Gemshorn; 4 Octave, Principal, Waldflote;=3D20 2-2/3 Twelfth ** (*); 2 Fifteenth **(*); Mixture V **(*); 16 Double Trumpet; 8 Trumpet; 16-8-4 Tuba Mirabilis (choir) ; Chimes = (echo=3D )   SWELL (enclosed): 16 Bourdon=3D20 8 Open Diapason, Viola da Gamba, Voix celeste, Clarabella, Stopped = Flute,=3D20 Dolcissimo, Dolce Celeste III ***; 4 Fugara, Flauto Traverso; 2 Piccolo; IV Cornet; III-IV Plein Jeu *** : 16 Bassoon; 8 Cornopean, Oboe, Vox Humana; 4 Clarion; Tremulant; Vox Tremulant   CHOIR (enclosed): 16 Contra Gamba;=3D20 8 Open Diapason, Melodia, Lieblich Gedeckt, Dulciana, Unda Maris ***;=3D20 4 Violina, Suabe Flute; 2-2/3 Nazard III; 2 Flageolet, Flute ***; 1-3/5=3D20 Tierce *** ;=3D20 III-IV Mixture *** ; 16 Contra Fagotto; 8 Clarinet; Tremulant; = Celesta=3D20 (Mustel, 49 bars) 16 Tuba Magna (ext); 8 Tuba Magna (25" wind pressure, unenclosed); 4 = Tuba=3D20 Clarion (ext)=3D20   SOLO (enclosed) (12" wind pressure) 8 Stentorphone, Grosse Gamba *; Gamba Celeste; Viole d'Orchestre*; = Viole=3D20 d'Orchestre Celeste, Viole Celeste II (tin), Tibia Plena *; 4 Octave, Harmonic Flute; 2 Piccolo; 8 Tuba, French Horn, Orch.

The = room,=3D20 of course a very significant part of this instrument is beautiful as well. = =3D20=3D =3D20 The room has touches of Art Deco, and the acoustics have "the touch" = of=3D20 Kirkegaard; with moveable drapes beautifully decorating the walls, = and=3D20 decorative moldings, and side balconies. The organ sits above the heads = of=3D =3D20 the orchestra at about 25' above stage level (my guess). Between = the=3D20 orchestra and the organ is a "singers loft" with two rows of seats = seating=3D20 maybe 40 (another guess) at the level of box seats, so that the singer's = lof=3D t=3D20 may be extended around to the sides. The facade picks up the Art Deco = styl=3D e=3D20 with elegant mouth arches in five flats (again, a recollection). = Swell=3D20 shades of the Choir and Swell are visible in the upper corners of the=3D20 chamber, and are painted black; they are just noticeable enough that = people=3D20 can enjoy watching the organ "at work" but not be distracted by them = during=3D =3D20 a performance. The exterior walls of the shallow chamber are painted = black=3D =3D20 as well, negating the need for a drapery of any sort. The organ is on = two=3D20 levels (except for the pedal basses) with the Great (and Tuba Mirabilis) = and=3D =3D20 Pedal in the center, and the Swell double-decked on the right and = Choir=3D20 double-decked on the left. I don't recall where the echo is!   The organ as heard today was, for the most part, reedless; the only = reed=3D20 installed being the Pedal Trombone. According to Jeff Weiler, the reeds = ar=3D e=3D20 ready to be shipped from the Quimby shop.   Tonally, this organ is a gem. Each stop is unique in its own way,=3D20 especially noticeable in the vast array of flutes. It is also striking = to=3D20 have such a palette of strings, as well. I won't take the time to=3D20 individually review each stop (it is a biggy of an organ!!), but I did = have=3D20 the opportunity afterward to play for about fifteen minutes while Jeff = said,=3D =3D20 "play this, try this, how bout this, want one of these"... Of special = not=3D e=3D20 are five of the flutes: the Doppelflote (gt), Leiblich Gedeckt (ch), = Grosse=3D =3D20 Flute and Tibia Plena (solo), and the Clarabella (sw). These are = all=3D20 exquisite; just imagine, a really BEAUTIFUL Tibia. All of the tibias = I'v=3D e=3D20 heard thus far have been unique and pretty, but with an element of = "ugly"=3D20 which made them special. This Tibia Plena is just a gorgeous open = wood=3D20 flute. ALso of special note is the Stentorphone in the Solo. It is a hug=3D e=3D20 Diapason which is like a final wrapping on the ensemble package of the = organ=3D ..=3D20 It is a very interesting solo stop as well. =3D20   The chamber interior was beautiful as well. The new pittman chests built = b=3D y=3D20 Quimby are a sight to behold in their precise construction. This is = the=3D20 first time I've ever seen the interior of an organ that was really clean = and=3D =3D20 spotless.   There is just so much to say about this instrument, but space prevents, = not=3D20 to mention my memory. There was quite alot to absorb in an hour and a = half.=3D =3D20 I really look forward to hearing the reeds in the Gala in March. This = is=3D20 really going to be one of the premier instruments in the country. = All=3D20 concerned have done excuisite work and are to be commended. And the = folks=3D =3D20 in the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra end of the deal as well. It's = a=3D20 pilgrimage instrument, and Jacksonville (and don't tell anyone you heard = thi=3D s=3D20 from me!!) is fast becoming a pilgrimage city. My father and = step-mother=3D20 live on the south side of the river, and we rode the Skyway Express from = the=3D =3D20 southside across the river to the downtown area. We had a wonderful = lunch=3D20 at Juliette's Cafe/Bistro in the Omni Hotel and then walked across the = stree=3D t=3D20 to the Civic Auditorium and SYmphony Hall. Everything was sparking = clean=3D20 and very beautiful. It's a wonderful vacation/holiday spot inspite of = the=3D20 obvious lack of snow!!!! ;-) (I had to get that in!!!!).... I hope = to=3D20 have pictures on my webpage soon.     Bruce Cornely ~ Cremona502@cs.com =3D20 with the Baskerbeagles in the Beagle's Nest ~ ""Haruffaroo Bohawow!"

(back) Subject: Re: Organ info search From: "Gary Blevins" <gsblvns@camalott.com> Date: Tue, 16 Jan 2001 01:08:31 -0600   Hello Mike, My knowledge fo Kilgen's history is not the greatest, but I hope this = helps. George Kilgen came from a family of organ builders who built in Europe. George did not build there, but immigrated to America. He worked for Jardine for a while and did some building in New York. He eventually = moved to St. Louis and established a firm there. His son, Charles joined him, = and helped run the business. Early Kilgen organs were mechanical action, later they employed tubular pneumatic action with chest actions similar to Roosevelt. It was rather sluggish, depending on the channel pressure to close the individual note bellows which had no springs. Later, they redesigned the chest to the electropneumatic pouch system (about 1920) which has been regarded by many (including myself) as one of the most responsive pneumatic chests built. They used this chest action until they went out of business in 1960. Their metal pipework was usually of thin guage metal and their wood pipes = a bit crude in construction, but the sound was rather successful. Kilgen went out of business in 1960 due to labor disputes, and from what I've seen in Joe Blanton's TAO editions from the mid 50's, Kilgen was advertising pipe organs augmented with electronics. I don't know if they ever built those instruments. -Gary                 -----Original Message----- From: mike <mike3247@earthlink.net> To: PipeChat <pipechat@pipechat.org> Date: Monday, January 15, 2001 8:32 PM Subject: Re: Organ info search     >Mike Gettelman wrote: > >Thank you kindly, > Can anyone now point me to some history on Kilgen? > >Mike > > >George Lawn wrote: > >> Mike ...
