Here's the topic I propose for 4:30 AM: What is your favorite reed and why? And you can't say an English Tuba on 250" of wind, because that's a given for everybody. :)   I have two favorites as of right now: Vox Humana(with independent trem of course), because it adds that perfect amount of mystery to a string chorus in a minor key setting -and- Bell Clarinet, because of it's warm, unobtrusive tone that lends beauty to any solo line!   Your turn, lets see how many reeds we can name, smart people!     Tyler W.

Actually the rumor was not that there would no longer be organ instruction at U.C. but rather that there wouldn't be a specific organ degree program (IOW, a major in organ) any longer. It didn't come to me through any academic source, but rather from an acquaintence who thought she heard it from a former CCM student who had returned to town for a visit. We all know how rumors are <g>. I'll clear it up for her, too.   Thanks,   Emily   >In a message dated 8/4/2003 7:32:38 PM Eastern Standard Time, >quilisma@socal.rr.com writes:   > I just received the following reply from Dr. Roberta Gary, chair of the > organ dept. and head of the Keyboard Division: > > "That's news to me!

It is sad that too few reed stops have been developed that are both quiet = and smooth. Steve

At one point, the minister said, "And all God's people said..." And the congregation responded, "Wow!" I thought I misheard them, but the minister repeated it. Totally bizarre. Wow doesn't even mean the same thing as Amen. At least "So Mote it Be" has the same meaning. Didn't even make sense. I wonder how long this has been going on.   Margo   RonSeverin@aol.com wrote:   > I wonder how long it will take these redactors to supplant AMEN > with So Mote it Be? > > When will the red flags start going up to stop this crap. > > Ron Severin

And sometimes it is confusing to switch from an AGO to the flat pedal board and back again. Luckily the university I attend is getting a practice organ with a flat pedal board before the Fall semester begins.

I don't call this a floundering organ studio, even though there's only two of us. (Of course, I'm a little biased, I'm sure.)   n the students is definitely there, to say nothing of the quality of the teachers.   I think in this case, the quality of the students and teachers is more important than the number of students.   Just my thoughts....

From: "terry hicks" <Terrick@webtv.net> Date: Tue, 5 Aug 2003 11:51:40 -0500 (CDT)   Blaine, Where on earth did you get the impression that Eastman ever taught students to play on theatre organs? Yes, Harold Gleason played George Eastman's house organ, but that had nothing to do with the School of Music.   However, it would be interesting for someone to publish research on why some college organ departments are still going strong and others aren't.

From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Tue, 05 Aug 2003 10:37:16 -0700   I CAN compare that with Oberlin in the 1960s, when the students petitioned the college to keep Robertson Hall open 24/7 so they could get enough practice time.   I distinctly remember having preparation time on the concert hall organ at 2 a.m. (!).   I can't recall at the time exactly how many practice organs Oberlin had .... I recall three Martinis, three two-manual Flentrops, the infamous "Chinese Moller" (so called because it was painted Chinese red and black), two bleached oak Moller unit organs (one of which went to Cincinnati eventually), a one-manual Flentrop with pull-down pedals, and Finney Chapel, which at the time was used mostly for a practice organ, and the occasional lesson for romantic pieces.   Nor do I remember how many students there were, but there were four full-time organ faculty members (Fenner Douglass, Garth Peacock, David Boe, and Haskell Thomson), and as I recall they all taught full schedules.   Upon graduation, most students went to Syracuse to do a master's with Poister, and then on to Eastman to do a doctorate with Craighead or Saunders.   Cheers,   Bud       Alicia Zeilenga wrote: > -----Original Message----- > From: "Shelley Culver" <sec_oboe2002@excite.com> > >> "...virtually ALL the college organ departments are floundering..." >> > > >>I will agree that the numbers aren't what they used to be, but I don't >>know if that means organ departments are floundering.
