(back) Subject: Cameron Carpenter in Allentown PA From: "Stephen Williams" <stepwill@enter.net> Date: Wed, 15 Jan 2003 18:58:05 -0500   Dear Listers,   The Arts at St. John's will present Cameron Carpenter in a recital at St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church, 32 South Fifth Street in downtown Allentown, Pennsylvania on Sunday, January 19 at 4:00 p.m. Cameron, 21, = has been hailed the youngest and most controversial of American touring organists. His performances have received acclaim for his interpretations = of imposing repertoire and for his imaginative improvisations. Cameron's musical training has included the American Boychoir School, John Bertalot = at Trinity Church in Princeton, the North Carolina School of the Arts with = John Mitchener, and is currently in his third year at The Juilliard School with John Weaver. His American organ concert debut was a fifteen-recital tour = of Florida, and his European debut was for an audience of over 3,000 at the = Dom Cathedral in Riga, Latvia. Cameron was awarded the Medal for = Interpretation at the World Organ Competition in memoriam Franz Liszt, in Budapest, Hungary, where he was the youngest competitor and the only American.   The organ at St. John's is a IV/87 Reuter (was a 1938 EM Skinner) refurbished and enlarged in 1993, housed in a striking Gothic building = with decent acoustics. Now if we can just get that Eagles' game rescheduled and the temperature back up to around 65 degrees, we'll be in fine shape! = There is a $5 suggested donation at the door. For program info, directions, = etc., call 610-435-1641, email stepwill@enter.net, or you may contact Cameron directly at carpenterconcerts@email.com or www.cameroncarpenter.com   If you're into looking ahead, Fred Swann will be at St. John's on May 2, 7:30 p.m.!   Warmest regards, Stephen Williams

It is always possible to restore any hest -- after all someone found it possible to build it in the first place -- although in some cases releathering it would involve so much work that it would be a lot cheaper to buy a new chest in the first place. = The example given, early 1900's Casavant chests, is I would say on the borderline between what is worth restoring and what isn't. It will = contain lever balance arms operating the pouches and these are rather tricky to releather and adjust properly, but it can certainly be done and indeed I have done it successfully myself. The same is true of very early Skinner organs and Aeolian organs which also have lever balance arms . Estey organs, whose pneumatics are glued on the side of the chest and very difficult to get off and to replace, are of similar difficulty. Bar and membrane Moller tubular chests are not only almost impossible to restore successfully (though I have heard of one or two people who have done it), but furthermore are so unkind to pipe speech that replacing them would be desirable even if they were easy to restore. The same is true of Steere tubulars.   John Speller   ----- Original Message ----- From: "danielwh1" <danielwh1@ns.sympatico.ca> To: "PipeChat" <pipechat@pipechat.org> Sent: Wednesday, January 15, 2003 11:52 AM Subject: Chest Releathering     > What would be the Qualification list for a windchest that could not be > releathered? > what would have to be taken into consideration > say for example ,an early 1900s Casavant windchest

(back) Subject: Re: From funerals to weddings From: "Ross & Lynda Wards" <TheShieling@xtra.co.nz> Date: Thu, 16 Jan 2003 17:11:23 +1300   The same here in NZ. The bishop told me, in answer to my question, that clergy in the diocese may only take weddings and baptisms outside a parish church if the family are more than 10 kilometres or more from a parish church (medical reasons excepted). That means I've never, ever, taken a wedding outside a church, and only a handful of baptisms. Personally, I = hate taking funerals outside the church, too, even if it is an undertaker's "chapel".

Then, of course, you could have a drive-by followed by a drive-through ! Might even have to put castors on the console.   Which is the point of my enquiry; has anyone succeeded in making their console mobile (other than putting the whole thing on a massive plinth ?
