I took over a program = this summer that is fairly well developed and has strong congregational = support. However, the previous director liked to do everything himself and didnt cultivate lay substitutes and assistants. The net result is that I have a =   fourty hour job that takes 70 to do right and little help. The help he = did allow is now aging and he alienated the younger members of the = congregation.   Ive been pondering for some time the idea of an internship sponsored by = the church. We will have a respectable organ soon and have wonderful resources(bells, brass ensemble, strings, very fine adult choir and select =   choir). It seems that college students often find employment as directors =   and organists, at a fairly young age but with little mentoring "in house" = . Often they assume duties that they are not yet ready for. Musically they may be ready but the people and ministry skills take a little more time. A =   program like mine could be a boon to the area musicians who want to "try = on" sacred music as a profession. In an age when organists and qualified = choral directors are at a premium, a program like mine has a responcibility to = help mentor and educate others. What says the list?   Another quick question. Having recently recieved my doctorate(and cool = gown and hood), I was interested in what the offical regalia is for AGO certs. = I would suspect they are somewhat distinctive. I became interested in this when My wife graduated from RPI with her doctorate this spring, and we discovered what a unique garb that school wears.   Ive been on the list since July and have enjoyed the discussion quite a = bit.

(back) Subject: Re: Programs focused on young organists From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Thu, 4 Oct 2001 11:15:38 EDT   Hi Craig:   Audrey Jacobsen, principal organist at Holy Family Cathedral, Orange, CA has established an internship with her organ students. They range in age from eight to about eighteen. The 9:30 service is designated to focus on the children of the Cathedral and their needs. Four students take turns per Mass every week. Each get a chance to play a prepared organ piece. She has twenty students, so this Mass is the pride and joy of the parish, and especially for the children and their parents. I think this model is a =   fine way to break in organists new to the profession, giving them experience with hymn accompaniment, and organ liturature. The children are most = eager, as they get to play the big organ in church, and I believe it brings along with it the poise and satisfaction of participation.   Audrey is a wonderful teacher, and I applaud her efforts, patience, and = love of the work. She loves them and they adore her. The end result is that there will be many new faces to fill important positions of organist in = the church. Here is a program that is working very well. I hope others will = also take this up in their positions as a model. Children love a chance to = perform, and these children have that chance.   I think it's time to recognize fine programs like this and their teachers. = The music is traditional, and the children love every minute of it.   Regards,   Ron Severin

I came for my lesson and she was not there... So I started practicing... While I was practicing and unknown to me, the interim secretary was calling various organists ... She finally said to our minister, "Who is that playing the organ in the church?" The minister answered, "Morton." She then said, I'm not calling any more..." So our minister came in the church sanctuary and asked me to play for the services the next day.... I played two Episcopal services of Holy Communion and Sermon... by the end of the second service I guess I was rather tired (I was up in a balcony, and it was rather hot up there)... because even my mother said I buzzed through "Who are These Like Stars Appearing" (about Hymn 130 in the Hymnal 1940)...   Until I went off to college, I guess I was one of the "prides and joys of the parish..." and I certainly was able gradually get used to playing a service...   I'm very happy for those young ladies and gentlemen that they have an opportunity to "break into the profession..." I only had an organ of 13 ranks (a Tellers-Kent, possibly c. 1920s, which had had the Vox Humana removed in the Swell and replaced with a Fugara 4', and which had had a 4' Octave added to the Great) to deal with, vis a vis a cathedral organ...   At any rate, thanks for sharing, Ron...       Morton Belcher     > > Regards, > > Ron Severin > > "Pipe Up and Be Heard!" > PipeChat: A discussion List for pipe/digital organs & related topics > HOMEPAGE : http://www.pipechat.org > List: mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org > Administration: mailto:admin@pipechat.org > Subscribe/Unsubscribe: mailto:requests@pipechat.org > >
