Back me up here. Local time in London may always be five = hours ahead, but if it is, it's because they have daylight savings time = that changes exactly when ours does. Zulu time, also known as Greenwich = Mean Time, is the world standard, and it doesn't change. It's four hours = different now and five in the winter. As I'm writing this at 10:19 a.m. = in New York, it's 14:19 GMT.   I wouldn't ordinarily write so much about an off-topic topic, but if you = want to catch English organ performances, which is how this whole thing = started, you don't want to be off by an hour.   Dick

I have NEVER traveled to London at any time of year where the time differenc wasn't 5 hours. I = did once return home the day before the US was to have a time change but the = UK wasn't but that didn't affect me, it affected the people traveling the = next day.   -----Original Message----- From: support@opensystemsorgans.com [mailto:support@opensystemsorgans.com] Sent: Wednesday, September 05, 2001 10:21 AM To: pipechat@pipechat.org Subject: RE: IRC Reminder     On Tue, 04 September 2001, "COLASACCO, ROBERT" wrote:   > > It's always 5 hours ahead of ET be it S or D. >   C'mon, pilots.

(back) Subject: The Deal on WCC From: <Oboe32@aol.com> Date: Wed, 05 Sep 2001 14:42:16 EDT   Hey Gang, I just thought I'd add two more cents on Westminster. It is = estimated that WCC musicians reach some 2 million musicians daily. = Considering that we are an institution of about 500 students, we're fairly = small as schools go, but large for a music school. Of what I've seen go = through, on, and around this college, Westminster is not for the musically = weak of heart. We have some of the most focused, determined, and DIVERSE = musical people ever! Westminster is a very welcoming environment that has = many excellent teachers, some of whome have great degrees, some of whom = are great teachers with no degrees. Professor Cowan was hired because he was EXCELLENT in his teaching. = The lessons he taught, along with his stellar performance sent him over = the top. The organ dept. at WCC has gone through much turmoil in the past = few years, and his appointment will lead us to a great future, and = hopefully much growth in our organ dept. The college has been home to many = dynamic organ teachers, incredible personalities and excellent teaching = skills. When it comes down to it, it is not the credentials, but the = ability, and the humanity of the artist!   Cheers,   Pete Isherwood, WCC 03'

My old choir director quit my school to go the Quad City area in Iowa/Illinois, so we got this newbie right out of Simpson College, which i know is a good music school, but this chic don't know much. neway, our band is composed of about 28 people, and, sad to say, right now, about 10 are drummers... *excuse* me, _percussionists_. and... *sigh* My area college is dropping all of its extracurricular programs because it don't got enough money, so i can't go to their choir, either. which sucks. Gomen nasai. I"m just complaining. I have nothing better to do.   __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?

From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Wed, 5 Sep 2001 21:19:11 EDT   Hey Kristan:   Send the ten drummers to seranade the college president, and find somebody in the band to play taps for your music program. :) Play dirges in the streets around the college, and carry signs and banners telling of the money situation. Call a local TV station and tell them of your plight. I guarantee money will be found fast for your education in music, especially if cameras are present. I did that at Cal State University LB one year and within a day we got action, so much so I was a celebrity. :) I was carried around on shoulders like a V.I.P.   Regards,   Ron the militant
