(cross-posted) From: "Kenneth Evans" <kevans1@rochester.rr.com> Date: Thu, 20 Mar 2003 19:01:38 -0500   The Rochester Theater Organ Society presents England's Robert Wolfe in an exciting concert at our Wurlitzer 4/23 on Tuesday evening, March 25 at 8 = PM. This event takes place at the Auditorium Center, 875 East Main Street, Rochester, NY 14605.   His many English fan club members refer to Robert Wolfe as "Wizard of the Wurlitzer" and "King of the Swingers." He has provided enthusiastic Rochester audiences, during his 10 previous RTOS appearances, with plenty of evidence of why he earned these titles. Video coverage on a large = screen will assist the audience's live viewing of Robert's breathtaking fingering during his fast numbers. His musical selections include the Blackpool = Tower style of dance sets, lush ballads, show tunes, orchestral transcriptions, spirited marches and more.   Driving directions, Robert Wolfe's biography, RTOS info and photos, the 4/23 chamber layouts and stoplist and much more are available at: http://theatreorgans.com/rochestr/ . Tickets at only $10 = each are available at the box office one hour preceding the concert. This is = one event that you don't want to miss! Join us for a spring evening of great theater organ entertainment   Announcement by Ken Evans, RTOS Director (past-President)

(back) Subject: What's in a name From: "Kenneth Potter" <swell_shades@yahoo.com> Date: Thu, 20 Mar 2003 20:06:55 -0800 (PST)   Colin asks who we think the best modern organ builders are:   Builders of our time that have mightily impressed me:   1. Peter Collins for his organ at Greyfriars in Edinburgh. Reusing pipework from an old Hamilton organ in a new tracker that really wows you. When is the last time you saw a new tracker with a bell gamba? Wakey wakey! Maybe my fav new organ on earth. Beats hell out of St. Giles down the street. RIP Bobby. Perfection.   2. Many organs by Charles Fisk. Truly excellent instruments by a man who helped build the bombs that did in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. I actually talked to one of those nuclear scientists who remembered "Charlie" playing piano out at at Los Alamos. Talk about doing penance. Stanford Chapel really extraordinary. House of Hope a tour de force of what can be done in a church with no acoustic whatever. Ditto Memorial Church, Harvard.   3. Anything by Jurgen Ahrend. Particularly the rebuild at the Martinikerk in Groningen. No flies on the little choir organ in the Oudekerk in A'dam. And wow, that gothic organ in Innsbruck. Enuf said.     4. The Schantz at Abysinian Baptist in New York. Wow. Beats hell out of Riverside or St. Bart's. What about Sacred Heart, Newark? Their later work hasn't impressed me much.   5. In New York we're quite proud of the Mander at St. Iggy's - or just about anything they have done for that matter.   6. People who have worked magic in rebuilds. Jim Konzelman for what he did with the dumpy old Austin at the Church of the Celestial Snooze in NYC. Sorry - Heavenly Rest. Larry Trupiano for St. Mary the Virgin (even thought I really miss that old 32' Diaphone). The Schonstein rebuild at the MoTab is extraordinary.     Any other ideas?   Ken                                     =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D Kenneth Potter, Organist/Director of Music St. Peter's Episcopal Church, Westchester Square, Bronx, NY 845/358-2528 <swell_shades@yahoo.com>, Austin Op. 2097 at: = http://www.nycago.org/Organs/html/StPetersEpBronx.html =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D   __________________________________________________ Do you Yahoo!?

Letourneau had a poster of five recent instruments.   Also, go to the PipeChat home page or do a web search for the APOBA website..

(back) Subject: Decorating the apartment From: "First Christian Church of Casey, IL" <kzrev@rr1.net> Date: Thu, 20 Mar 2003 23:35:11 -0600   Why not decorate with some real pipes mounted in a frame of some sort and hung on or set against the wall? You can get the bottom octave of an 8' gedeckt for from free to $50 or so, and other stuff in the same price = range. Style and sound don't matter when you're not playing them!   Dennis Steckley ________________ I'm decorating my apartment, and I would really like to have a "full size" poster of an organ, or something similar. Something with many pipes, you know, impressive (before I get flamed for that, I meant the look is impressive, I meant nothing by bigger is better) Justin Karch

Their buildings are enormous,and their opus list is very substantial.   Dennis Steckley __________ "I think Austin has taken the forefront as the country's major large/factory organ builder"
