(back) Subject: The Organ in Richmond, a new book From: "William T. Van Pelt III" <wvanpelt@erols.com> Date: Fri, 08 Jun 2001 21:57:58 -0400   "The Organ in Richmond" (Virginia) is a new book by OHS member and organist Donald Traser. Of 266 pages with many photographs and other illustrations, the book is hardbound and available from the OHS Catalog, http://www.ohscatalog.org   Richmond's organ heritage begins, so far as we and the author can authenticate, with two organs arriving in 1816 (maybe one was in 1817), one at St. John=92s Church, where Patrick Henry uttered his most famous words, the other at Monumental Church, an elegant, domed, octagonal building designed by Robert Mills (Washington Monument) and built as a monument to 71 who perished in a fire of 1811 at the Richmond Theatre. Richmond had or has organs from most major builders and some almost unique ones, especially more than a dozen built 1830-1878 by Henry Erben of New York. Donald Traser gathers photographs, anecdotes, and histories of the city=92s many churches in the 19th and 20th centuries as well as biographical notes on the organists who played and play them.   Bill Van Pelt

(back) Subject: OHS Convention From: "William T. Van Pelt III" <wvanpelt@erols.com> Date: Fri, 08 Jun 2001 22:24:08 -0400   The OHS Convention is ready to go beginning Thursday evening, June 21, with a concert in Greensboro, North Carolina, at First Presbyterian Church -- the very organ that is featured on the cover of the May issue of The American Organist. Seems that it is the magnum opus of Letourneau and was just completed.   The Convention will hear concerts on about 35 organs June 21-28, including three remarkable residence organs (yes, both the residences and the organs are remarkable: Biltmore in Asheville (E. M. Skinner), Reynolda House in Reidsville (45 or so ranks of Aeolian), and Chiquapenn Plantation (E. M. Skinner); the Duke University organs by Aeolian, Flentrop, and Brombaugh, and lots of others by Reuben Midmer, Felgemaker, Pomplitz, Hook & Hastings, Skinner, Kilgen, Erben, Farmer, Casavant, Tannenberg, etc.   We have about 270 people signed up (actually, a range of about 240 to 300 depending upon the day -- yes, one may register for individual days) and we will welcome more.   The daily fee, or the fee for the entire convention, includes transportation to all of the events, all evening meals Friday through Thursday, and all but one luncheon.   Please visit the OHS "institutional" website (as distinct from the OHS Catalog website) to check out the schedule, see a few pictures, and download the registration form at http://www.organsociety.org/2001/ You can FAX the form to 804-353-9266, or mail it to us at the address given on the form, or call us on Monday after about 9:30 a.m. Eastern time at 804-353-9226.   Bill Van Pelt
