(back) Subject: Silent Movies with Theater Organ in Rome, NY (cross-posted) From: "Ken Evans" <kevans1@rochester.rr.com> Date: Tue, 23 Apr 2002 10:50:27 -0400   Rome, New York'ss 1928 movie palace, the Capitol Theatre presents:   Cecil B. DeMille's 1928 silent film "The Godless Girl" shown in glorious 35mm! Accompanied by Philip C. Carli at the Capitol Grand Moller Pipe Organ.   Cast: Lina Basquette (Judith Craig), Marie Prevost (Mame), George Duryea (Bob Hathaway), Noah Beery (head guard), Eddie Quillan ("Goat"), Mary Jan= e Irving (victim), Clarence Burton, Dick Alexander (guards), Kate Price, Hedwig Reicher (matrons), Julia Faye, Viola Louie, Emily Barrye (inmates).   "The Godless Girl," producer-director Cecil B. DeMille's final pictur= e of the silent era, tells the story of high school student Judith Craig (Lin= a Basquette) who, casting off traditional religious values as old-fashioned= , forms a club called "The Godless Society." After a fight with the rival Christian society in which a 15-year-old girl is killed, Judith and the h= ead of the religious club (George Duryea) are sent to the state reformatory, where they find themselves in a series of typical De Mille situations, including a climatic prison fire.   Released simultaneously in sound and silent versions, critics generally deplored the (few) tacked-on talking scenes, most of which were considere= d to be inappropriately comedic in nature. The Capitol Theatre in Rome, Ne= w York will show a stunning 35mm print of the silent version, courtesy of t= he George Eastman House. Noted silent film historian Kevin Brownlow called "The Godless Girl", "authentic, exciting, and shocking," and judged it to= be "one of DeMille's best works."   Built in 1928 as part of the Kallet Theatre chain, the 1,700 seat Capit= ol Theatre remains the only building in the history of Rome, New York built expressly for the purpose of exhibiting motion pictures.   In addition to the feature, the program will also include the 1921 Harold Lloyd (3-reel) short comedy, "Now Or Never."   Accompaniment for both films will be by noted silent film musician Phil= ip C. Carli. Mr. Carli will be playing the 3/7 Moller Theatre Organ which i= s original to the theatre. The Capitol Moller is one of only three Moller Theatre organs remaining in their original theatre installations in the United States. This presentation will mark the first time since 1929 tha= t the organ has been used to accompany a feature film.   "The Godless Girl" will be shown at the Capitol Theatre (220 W. Dominic= k St., Rome, N.Y.) once only, on Saturday, May 4, 2002 at 7 o=B9clock p.m. General admission tickets to the event are $10. For further information telephone the Capitol Theatre at (315) 337-6277.    
(back) Subject: RE: Kimball Pipe Organ in Chicago WMBI Studio B From: "Emmons, Paul" <pemmons@wcupa.edu> Date: Tue, 23 Apr 2002 11:48:50 -0400   Does anyone know what happened to the organ in the WGN studio in Chicago? Porter Heaps made about a dozen LP recordings on it in the early or mid 1950s on the Summit label. It had a three-manual horseshoe console. The manuals were Great, Solo, and Accompaniment (as he explained to me himself the one time I ever met him), and the sound was definitely theater style, although perhaps it was not in a pure theater-organ concept.   Three of the LPs in this series were the first organ recordings I ever = had, at age 9-10. Our family not being very well off in those days, they were acquired one at a time, weeks or months apart, and I guarded each one as a great gift and treasure. I still have them (quite worn out). They were transcriptions of opera arias, semi-classical and popular songs from early in the century, etc.-- music for little old ladies. Needless to say, neither I, my family, nor even my teacher had much concept of real organ repertoire at that time. But Mr. Heaps played them well, and they kept my enthusiasm alive for at least two years.

Ed" <edwardorgan@hotmail.com> Date: Tue, 23 Apr 2002 14:24:59 +0000     Ten Commandments of Organ Practice   (1) Thou shalt practice every day, even if only for a short period   (2) Thou shalt NEVER practice faster than thou canst play perfectly, for it is written: Perfect Practice Makes Perfect.   (3) Thou shalt NOT put off working on the hard parts; David did not invite Goliath to come back after tea.   (4) Thou shalt work out a usable fingering, inscribe it on thy papyrus and NEVER vary from same -- for Fumble Fingers Find Fate Fickle   (5) Thou shalt never apologize for thy playing, nor say "Oops!" when thoumakest a mistake, for thou wilt only draw attention to things which otherwise would never be noticed by the thick people. (6) Thou shalt practice each composition in short segments; that thy = fingers may not break off more than thy mind can chew. (7) Thou shalt listen ... and not only to organists, for it is written: What this untidy world needs is fewer organists and more musicians who can play the organ. (8) Thou shalt NOT play pedals without shoes ... for thy Odor-eaters may be spent, and besides, it leads to sloppy playing. (9) Thou shalt begin and end each practice session with something thou canst play readily, that thou mayest not be discouraged.   10) Thou shalt always remember that thy practice is a labour of love and that by persistence (oft proved by thyself in other undertakings) thou canst bring to pass many wonders. > > There's an 11th Commandment of Organ Practice: > 11. Thou shalt pray before practicing organ. Pray thou play "in holiness beauty" which 2 Chronicles says was done by the Levite choir. Pray thou play with the "spirit and the understanding" which Psalms says instrumentalists and singers are to do.         _________________________________________________________________ Join the world=92s largest e-mail service with MSN Hotmail. http://www.hotmail.com

I retired nearly 2 years ago, and since then have been working (for the same people) as a consultant, making nearly 60% more money and working at home (which lets me create my own schedule.

I don't post to any of the lists terribly often, but I read the postings of others all the time. We have exchanged observations in the past.   I live in a suburb of Baltimore (been here for 16 years). I previously lived in New Hampshire, California, Panama, Texas, Indiana, and am originally from Illinois. Call me a "corporate nomad." I was a career Federal civil servant prior to my retirement. Now I'm a "consultant" on contract for the same agency from which I retired, the U. S. Department of Veterans Affairs. I'm a disability claims rating officer. On the side, I am organist and choirmaster of Christ Lutheran Church (LCMS) of Dundalk, a Northeastern suburb of Baltimore. We have a mostly original and tonally unaltered E. M. Skinner, vintage 1922, of II/18. It's practically = identical to the one featured in the Peter Stolzfus and Ken Cowan recording of the residence organ in Elm Court, Butler, PA, which was released last year by JAV. Ours was built for the Baltimore mansion of one of the late 19th century industrial robber barons, who donated it to our church when he = died in the mid-1950s. Since it has no choruses at all, it's particularly well suited to liturgy, but it's still a wonderful piece of history, and I'm so blessed to have access to it all the time. It has some of the most beautiful solo reeds I've ever heard, as well as two ravishing celestes = (one string, one flute).   So, until Thursday morning, good night!   Dave
