(back) Subject: Frey Performs Mahler Online! From: <AFberlin3@aol.com> Date: Wed, 3 Apr 2002 07:16:27 EST   Dear Friends,   I just thought I would share with you that you can hear my performance of = the beautiful Adagietto from the Mahler 5th Symphony at pipedreams.org.   It is featured on this weeks PIPEDREAMS broadcast about transcriptions, = but you can also listen to the program on the above-mentioned website: Just = go to pipedreams.org and click "listen". Michael Barone, the wonderful host = of this program, also plays a few moments of my recording of one of the piano =   works of Korngold--an appropriate choice due to the personal connection between this composer and Gustav Mahler.   The organ is one of my favorite instruments in the world-the fabulous G. Donald Harrison Aeolian-Skinner in Grace Cathedral, San Francisco.   Check out the website and hear one of the most beautiful works in the orchestral repertoire played on one of the finest examples of American = organ building!   All best to you, Alexander Frey

Thanks!   I don't know about lower Michigan, but here in rural New york state, my wife (also a full time music teacher)plays for a small congregation of weekenders, so no regular choir duties, except for "throwing one together"(in truth it is a lot of work and the results are amazing!) few weeks prior to Easter and Christmas. She spends one night a week at the church to plan and practice, also practices at home other times. It pays about 12K a year; would not do it for any less, considering the impact on family, vacation plans, etc.   Nothing personal, but $25/week is absurd, no matter how much it is done "for the cause". It demeans the position.   strictly our not so humble opinion...   John V

Motors can be re-wound by a good motor shop. Parts can be had, including new motor units I believe, from Spencer Turbine Company, 600 Day Hill Road, Windsor, CT 06095 800 232 4321 www.spencerturbine.com Roy Redman P.S. If you do dissemble the blower, be sure to look for marks on the fans and shaft for proper position. If you get them off, the unit will be out of balance, and will vibrate.

That is why it was thought that replacement with a reliable Spencer would be the best choice..   jch     At 02:50 PM 4/3/02 -0600, you wrote: >You did not say what was wrong with the Spencer, but usually they can be >very successfully repaired.

(back) Subject: A successful gathering! From: "Bob Conway" <conwayb@sympatico.ca> Date: Wed, 03 Apr 2002 18:07:05 -0500   This afternoon at 4.00 pm Eastern Time we had a few listers getting together on PipeChat IRC for a while. It was 10.00 pm in England, but as from next week it will be 9.00 pm as we on this side of the pond catch up with their Daylight Saving Time.   I was pleased to see that both David, our fearless leader, and Mack, from Boston, appeared for a brief visit, - if only to see that we were behaving =   ourselves!   We have agreed that this is a reasonable time and day to have our Trans-Atlantic Pipechat IRC, and we would like to invite all who can join in to do so next Wednesday.   At 4.00 pm Eastern Time here, or at 9.00 pm in England. Others from the European continent might like to give it a try, - the more the merrier!   Remember Wednesdays for Pipechat IRC at the above times, - y'all come now!   Bob Conway
