(back) Subject: Rochester Sept. 15 Concert Artist Change (cross-posted) From: "Ken Evans" <kevans1@rochester.rr.com> Date: Wed, 12 Sep 2001 20:19:45 -0400   Jelani Eddington replaces Lew Williams to perform at the Rochester Theater Organ Society's famous 4/22 Wurlitzer at 8 p.m. on Saturday evening, September 15, 2001. This event takes place at Rochester's art-deco Auditorium Center, 875 East Main Street.   After Tuesday's 'Day of Terror' and the resultant disruption in commercial flights, our consultation with Lew Williams indicated that his flight from Phoenix, AZ to Rochester to be very 'iffy' proposition. Therefore, Lew suggested a postponement of his concert date to a more stable time.   Fortunately, Jelani Eddington has agreed to drive from NYC in time to perform here Saturday evening. (BTW, Jelani was an eyewitness near the = WTC location when the second tower collapsed.) Anyone who knows theater organists will tell you that both Lew and Jelani are world-class artists = and both have performed earlier concerts for RTOS.   We are indeed fortunate to present Jelani at this time (he was originally scheduled for our April 20, 2002 concert). We also look forward to Lew's return to our console at a later date.   This presentation is our annual FREE admission introduction to Rochester's brand of theater pipe organ entertainment. You are welcome to take = advantage of this invitation to be our guests. Particulars, driving directions, = hotel info and lots of photographs are available from the RTOS website at http://theatreorgans.com/rochestr/ .   The show will go on!   With very sober regards, Ken Evans, President, RTOS

Many of us have very fond memories of the wonderful hospitality given to = us by our colleagues in New York City and Washington DC when we have been visiting there.

(back) Subject: Felix Hell's Sixteenth Birthday Gathering From: "Malcolm Wechsler" <manderusa@earthlink.net> Date: Thu, 13 Sep 2001 02:05:27 -0400   Dear Lists and Friends,   Several people have written asking if I know whether or not the birthday gathering in honor of Felix Hell will take place as scheduled on Friday evening. The answer is that it will. Some of the program will be changed somewhat to reflect the still raw feelings of us all in the wake of the cataclysmic events of earlier this week, but I for one do not believe we should let the cowards who did the unspeakable deeds of last Tuesday stop = us from honoring this fine musician and friend both on his sixteenth = birthday, and on the occasion of his leaving to begin his term at Curtis in Philadelphia. I have been at a real emotional low point these last two = days, pulling myself away from horrified absorption at the TV only once - to = play for a community service on Tuesday night, which was wonderfully helpful. I am ready to do something fine and good! For those who missed the announcement, the event is at St. Peter's Lutheran Church at 54th and Lexington this Friday evening. There is a church dinner at 7, a concert at 8, and a birthday cake at 9:30. The church asked for dinner reservations = by the 10th, but you might still be able to get in. Phone Tom Schmidt, Cantor of St. Peter's at 212/935-2200 or e-mail at tschmidt@saintpeters.org. Failing that, the concert begins at 8.   Felix has for a few days been in Atlanta, where he was to play this = evening (Wednesday). The church felt it had to cancel the recital, which left = Felix stranded. Hans phoned a while ago to say he was on his way, driving south = to pick him up to get him back here for Friday. Felix tried to get on a train at least to Greensboro, but with no air service, he was unable to get a train reservation. He is taking a Greyhound to Greensboro, where they will meet and head north. Here's wishing them a safe journey.   Cheers,   Malcolm Wechsler www.mander-organs.com

(back) Subject: Re: Eleven Friends Dead From: "David Carter" <david_n_carter@hotmail.com> Date: Thu, 13 Sep 2001 08:30:23   Dear Pipechatters - A few thoughts on the events of the past two days...   Sebastian - My condolences and prayers to you as you grieve the loss of your firefighting friends from your neighborhood. My uncle is a retired L.A. firefighter, and served during the Watts riots in the 60's, so that hits close to home for me as well.   Another thought... There is a thread on the 'other' list about music appropriate for a = solemn, sad, scary time such as this. Somebody suggested that arrangements or improvisations on the 'Dies Irae' would be appropriate. Since I don't have =   postings privs to that list (I only lurk over there), I thought I would = post my response and feelings about that on Pipechat. Having the 'Dies Irae' in =   my head from singing in a fairly recent performance (May) of Verdi's requiem, I feel that Dies Irae is too abrupt of a sentiment, too 'hellfire =   and brimstone' at a time when more quiet and peaceful music is needed, = IMHO.   In the life-goes-on vein... I work for the California State Legislature, and it is now past 1:00 am, = and they are busy trying to carry on the business of the state(although definitely not business as usual, with everything that has occurred). Tomorrow (Friday 9/14) is the last day of the first year of our two-year legislative session, and they are working late into the night to try and finish up most if not all of the bills introduced the past 8.5 months. = They began today, however, with a joint prayer service in the Assembly = Chambers, with local clergy of many faiths leading prayers and offering their thoughts. Resolution were introduced in both houses condemning the = attacks. (If anyone is interested, I will post links to the text of the resolutions =   tomorrow, when the resolutions are posted to the legislative web site.)   David Carter Sacramento   _________________________________________________________________ Get your FREE download of MSN Explorer at http://explorer.msn.com/intl.asp
