(back) Subject: Successful recruitment to the organ From: <TubaMagna@aol.com> Date: Mon, 5 Mar 2001 16:53:12 EST   Mr. Russell brought up the subject of an unsuccessful video of an event intended to raise organ consciousness amongst the young, as part of a = thread about organ students, as a tangent to a thread about pedal board design.   Part of the self-destruction of the organ community lies in the fact that = the control of many things, such as events, recitals, lectures, and media projects, are controlled by a very, very small number of people. A very select inner guard, to which there is little entree, controls most of = these things, on both a national and a chapter level.   I know for a fact that many of the most capable and scholarly people in my =   chapter, highly educated lecturers as well as brilliant recitalists, shall =   never, ever be heard in their lifetime because of this. They get = exhausted and demoralized, and stop trying, staying away from all Guild events, and = end up being a stranger to their chapter, their only contact with the AGO = being their monthly copy of The American Organist. It is in that publication = that they get to read, ad infinitum, of the works and achievements of the same people, year in, year out. The same people are always asked to play, and = the same people are always asked to speak. The nominating committee often selects single candidates for each post, so that there IS no election. = Who nominates the nominating committee?   Some of them do go out on their own, publishing their books and issuing = their CDs independently, often to be greeted with resentment. Some of them have =   opted for successful careers outside the United States, since they no = longer wish to endure the contempt of their "colleagues" Stateside. Others stay quietly at their posts, producing beautiful, finely honed music programs, known only to their parishioners.   Before we start talking about the lack of organists and organ students, we =   must first stop driving away the resources we DO have. Maybe the = youngun's are terrified of becoming organists, or even trying.

I do not dwell on their shortcomings nor do I lament their existence for without them, I would have nothing to play. But last night I played my first pipe organ. I wept.    
(back) Subject: AGO / organ-builders From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Mon, 05 Mar 2001 14:30:23 -0800   The Guild has never gotten me a job, helped me keep a job, or taught me how to DO my job. Nor has it gotten me better wages, working conditions, or benefits. I've done that on my own.   As far as TAO is concerned, the Diapason has most of the scholarly articles.   POOF!   "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain." (grin)   ****************************   Organ-builders and their popularity go in cycles ... I'm old enough to remember when Aeolian-Skinner was virtually the "house builder" for the Episcopal Church, as was Schlicker for the Lutheran Church.   Then it was Holtkamp (and Flentrop and Beckerath for the more adventurous); now it's a distinguished line of small builders, mostly descended from John Brombaugh's shop, Fisk, and Schoenstein, who seems to have captured the American Classic mega-organ market, for the most part.   We're looking at small local and regional builders because we can't AFFORD the big names, and I don't particularly want to wait 5-7 years for an organ ... I'm too OLD (grin).   Cheers,   Bud
