Ironically, this story may happen again this week since I have to use this Clavinova for the Messiah and I wonder if anyone else has had this problem with them...   Two years ago in a Messiah rehearsal, we had a 16-piece orchestra and we were using a Yamaha Clavinova as the harpsichord. As a local church with a small budget for this event, it's all we could do. A parishioner's loaned harpsichord was horribly out of tune and in need of work; we had to return it to her and not use it. The Clavinova resides at the rector's home so it was carried over and placed on the altar behind the cellos. The Director of Music was the conductor that year. I was busy playing some part of the Messiah in our one rehearsal, and all of a sudden, I heard a boogie-woogie demo come streaming out of this Clavinova! I remember the whole orchestra turned and stared at me when the boogie-woogie demo took over in the midst of "And He Shall Purify...". The director looked at me, furious, and demanded to know what had happened. Everyone thought it was funny but no one laughed because of the director's fury. I raised both arms in the air as if the police had ordered me to put my hands in the air and said, "I didn't do it". The boogie-woogie continued for a little while because it took the director awhile to get over to me as he struggled to run between oboists, bassoonists, and cellos and their music stands. He came over and defiantly turned the Clavinova off...and then turned it back on and marched back to his podium. I said, "Why didn't you tell me it had this glitch and that I just had to turn it off?!" But I don't think the director knew the idiosyncrasies of the rector's Clavinova. Each year now the men in the church choir, only the men, approach me in my flowing black dress on the night of the concert and want to bet money with me whether the rector's Clavinova will lapse into its default demo. You can tell they secretly hope it will. And I secretly yearn that the rector's Clavinova will spontaneously burst into its boogie-woogie demo also...I could profit by it.... I just can't decide where the best place would be...I guess I'll wait and hear the soloists during rehearsal...   My conscience fights with me whether to tell the new conductor about this potential glitch...or maybe I won't...   Lynn Finegan Associate Organist Orinda, CA ----__JNP_000_145a.3252.267c Content-Type: text/html; charset=3Dus-ascii Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable   <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN"> <HTML><HEAD> <META http-equiv=3D3DContent-Type content=3D3D"text/html; = charset=3D3Diso-8859-1"> <META content=3D3D"MSHTML 5.50.4522.1800" name=3D3DGENERATOR></HEAD> <BODY bottomMargin=3D3D0 leftMargin=3D3D3 topMargin=3D3D0 = rightMargin=3D3D3> <DIV></DIV> <DIV> <DIV>Here's a true story.&nbsp; Ironically, this story may happen again = =3D this=3D20 week since&nbsp;I have to use this Clavinova for the Messiah and I wonder = =3D if=3D20 anyone else has had this problem with them...</DIV> <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV>Two&nbsp;years ago in a Messiah rehearsal, we had a 16-piece = orchestra=3D and=3D20 we were using a Yamaha Clavinova as the harpsichord.&nbsp;&nbsp;As a = local=3D =3D20 church with a small budget for this event, it's all we could do.&nbsp; = A=3D20 parishioner's loaned harpsichord was horribly out of tune and in need of = =3D work;=3D20 we had to return it to her and not use it.&nbsp; The Clavinova resides at = =3D the=3D20 rector's home so it was carried over and placed on the altar behind = the=3D20 cellos.&nbsp; The Director of Music was the conductor that year.&nbsp; I = =3D was=3D20 busy playing some part of the Messiah in our one rehearsal, and all of = a=3D20 sudden,&nbsp;I heard a boogie-woogie demo&nbsp;come streaming out of = this=3D20 Clavinova! &nbsp;I remember the whole orchestra turned and stared at me =3D when the=3D20 boogie-woogie demo took over in the midst of "And He Shall = Purify...".&nbsp=3D ; The=3D20 director looked at me, furious, and demanded to know what had = happened.&=3D nbsp;=3D20 Everyone thought it was funny but no one laughed because of the = director's=3D =3D20 fury.&nbsp; I raised both arms in the air as if the police had ordered me = =3D to put=3D20 my hands in the air and said, "I didn't do it".&nbsp; The = boogie-woogie=3D20 continued for a little while because it took the director awhile to get = =3D over to=3D20 me as he struggled to run between&nbsp;oboists, bassoonists, and cellos = and=3D =3D20 their music stands.&nbsp; He came over and defiantly turned the = Clavinova=3D20 off...and then turned it back on and marched back to his podium.&nbsp; I = =3D said,=3D20 "Why didn't you tell me it had this glitch and that I just had to turn = it=3D20 off?!"&nbsp; But I don't think the director knew the idiosyncrasies of = the=3D =3D20 rector's Clavinova.&nbsp; Each year now the men in the church choir, = <EM>=3D only=3D20 the men</EM>, approach me in my flowing black dress on the night of the = =3D concert=3D20 and want to bet money with me whether the rector's Clavinova will lapse = =3D into its=3D20 default demo.&nbsp;You can tell they secretly hope it will.&nbsp;&nbsp;And = =3D I=3D20 secretly yearn that the rector's Clavinova will spontaneously burst into = =3D its=3D20 boogie-woogie demo also...I could profit by it....&nbsp; I just can't =3D decide=3D20 where the best place would be...I guess I'll wait and hear the soloists = =3D during=3D20 rehearsal...</DIV> <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV>My conscience fights with me&nbsp;whether to&nbsp;tell the new =3D conductor=3D20 about this potential glitch...or maybe I won't...</DIV> <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV>Lynn Finegan</DIV> <DIV>Associate Organist</DIV> <DIV>Orinda, CA</DIV></DIV></BODY></HTML>   ----__JNP_000_145a.3252.267c--

Great laugh, and a great concert resumed.   Paul   __________________________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? Yahoo! Mail Plus - Powerful. Affordable. Sign up now. http://mailplus.yahoo.com

Owen Brady played that night. The organ had it's own 18 wheeler. That was between 1962 and 1965 or so. When not in use the organ was stored in the old Morris Premann building. IIRC the console was black with drawknobs. Everything was wired to quick disconnects. It was capable of set up and tuning in around two hours.   Ron Severin   --part1_bf.2a886e23.2b1ae3dc_boundary Content-Type: text/html; charset=3D"US-ASCII" Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit   <HTML><FONT FACE=3Darial,helvetica><FONT SIZE=3D2 FAMILY=3D"SANSSERIF" = FACE=3D"Arial" LANG=3D"0">Dear Paul:<BR> <BR> I remember another concert Roger Wagner conducted using<BR> a Wicks 7 rank custom organ.
