(back) Subject: Re: Sibelius - Finale From: "Paul Opel" <popel@sover.net> Date: Thu, 1 Mar 2001 08:03:14 -0400   My advice is to forget both, and move up to Graphire Music Press. This is = a very easy program to use, and very powerful. I rarely need the manual, except when I need to do something that I haven't done before (a recent = one was doing 17-tuplets in a cross-staff piano piano piece). People tell me that it is on par with Sibelius for ease of use, but that it will do = things that Sibelius can't.   It was developed from the music processing software for the Synclavier, = but now it works on Macs and Windows.   Best of all, they write very tight code- the program ships (compressed) on one floppy disc!   GMP has a website, but I don't remember the URL.   Good luck-   Paul   http://www.sover.net/~popel

(back) Subject: OHS Convention Website From: "William T. Van Pelt" <bill@organsociety.org> Date: Thu, 1 Mar 2001 10:48:17 -0500   Pictures of some of the 35+ organs to be heard during the OHS Convention June 21-28 are now available to be seen at = http://www.organsociety.com/2001   The convention features two large organs by the Aeolian Company, including the magnificent concert organ at Duke University Chapel (as well as both = the Brombaugh and Flentrop organs at Duke Chapel) and the 4-45 player organ in the residence of tobacconist R. J. Reynolds, four organs by E. M. Skinner (two in spectacular residences and two in churches, including the restored 4m at St. Paul's, Winston-Salem).   A convention schedule is on the web as well.   We have not completed the registration information, so it is not possible = to register for the convention as yet. However, we do know that the registration fee for individual days or the registration fee for the = entire convention will include transportation to all events and all luncheon and evening meals. Also, the two hotels we will use in Clemmons, North = Carolina (a suburb of Winston-Salem) are very reasonable: $78 single or double in = the Ramada; $68 single or double in the Super 8.   We'll visit a number of 19th-century organs, too, including fine = instruments by A. B. Felgemaker, E. & G. G. Hook & Hastings, Reuben Midmer, August Pomplitz, M. P. Moller, Wm. B. D. Simmons, S. S. Hamill, Henry Erben, and others. There are also very rare 18th century American organs by = Tannenberg and Bulitschek to be heard.   Concerts will be played on recent 20th-century organs by Letourneau (4-100+), Andover, Noack, John Farmer, Fisk, Brombaugh, Dobson/Rosales. Concerts will be played on earlier 20th-century organs by Austin, = Casavant, Hook & Hastings, Kilgen, as well as the Aeolian and E. M. Skinner organs.   Bill    
(back) Subject: Pipe Organ Damage update From: "DanielW Hopkins" <danielwh1@ns.sympatico.ca> Date: Thu, 01 Mar 2001 23:39:16 -0400   Reports are still coming in but here is what we know so far. The organ at Trinity church was damaged, I am unsure how badly. The St. Mark's = Flentrop organ was heavily damaged, many of the pipes fell down thru the case crushing some of the tracker action. I will forward your request for information to Roger and see if he has any more to add.   Thank you,   Sarah Holberg Loft Recordings

From: <DEMPAR1@aol.com> Date: Fri, 02 Mar 2001 01:33:24 EST   > Wouldn't it be great if there was a ConsoleCAM on some of the major > organs?   Web cams are a great idea and relatively inexpensive. Unfortunately, most = of them do not allow you to sync a sound channel. Also, for any kind of = live motion action, like an organist practicing, you would need a high = speed internet connection above 256K dedicated just to the camera.
