I think the instrument there is a four manual Aeolian Skinner. All the experts correct me or = expand on that for him.

'60s Moller ... don't know what the choir's like these days.   I think the Spreckels Sunday afternoon concert is at 2 p.m. ... check their website; there's also a Monday night summer concert, but I don't know if those have started yet or not.   Other organs: not much ... a little Beckerath at the Immaculata by University of San Diego (the big dome); a nice 3m Ott at St. Brigid's RC in Pacific Beach; a little Ott at Founder's Chapel at University of San Diego; a big Lyle Blackinton in First United Methodist in Mission Valley; a nondescript big Austin in St. James Episcopal La Jolla; a historic little 1m Johnson down in National City Christian that came round the Horn on a sailing ship; 1st Pres downtown is a nasty Crashavant, 100 ranks, 50 of which must be mixtures ... can't think of anything else at the moment, and I lived there for nearly thirty years (grin).   Cheers,   Bud   Jeremy Wance wrote: > > Hi All! > > I have been in San Diego at a seminar for the past two weeks, during = which > time I only left the hotel *twice*!

(back) Subject: Boise Music Week - Theatre Organ program From: "Sandra Capri" <scapri@spro.net> Date: 09 May 2003 23:47:26 -0600   This may seem trivial to many, but I went and had a blast:   The Egyptian Theatre in Boise Idaho had a program today, featuring the Egyptian Theatre Robert Morton Theatre Pipe Organ. It is the "only pipe organ installed in its original theatre in the State of Idaho." It's a 2 manual, 8 rank organ, installed for the opening of the theatre in 1927. The opening night organist was Gretta Brattian, who played "The Star Spangled Banner", and the organ music for silent film "Don Juan".   The organ has theatre accoutrements (bird chirps, sirens, horns, whistles, bells, drums, chimes, etc). The organ is being restored by the Egyptian Theatre Organ Society (and the theatre itself was restored to its original gold-leaf scenic glory in the 80s and 90s).   Today's program featured several marches (Sousa, et.al) with many interesting theatre affects thrown in. Also a very nice rendition of Londonderry Aire.   Then the sing-along. Yes it sounds hokey, but the nearly full theatre of folks (including myself) had a blast. These were old songs with the original slides displaying on screen (some from the 30's) - "The Sidewalks of New York", "Yankee Doodle Dandy", and many songs that I knew only vaguely, or not at all (I'm a child of the 60's :-).   Then the finale was the lights dropping low, and the silent film "Two Tars" with Laurel and Hardy. Accompanied on the organ of course.   A very enjoyable afternoon was had by all. So now you know what we do for fun on a Friday afternoon in Boise Idaho!   Sandra
