From: <Innkawgneeto@cs.com> Date: Fri, 13 Feb 2004 00:01:48 EST   All this about organ depts closing...   Rhetorically speaking... will this mean larger departments at fewer schools? will this mean more elitist departments at the few schools that offer it? tougher entrance requirements? easier?   Will it mean churches getting together to establish "certificate schools" = or something similar?   Neil by the Bay    
(back) Subject: Re: Closing Music Dept.s in famous Universities From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Fri, 13 Feb 2004 01:14:00 EST   It is indeed rather sad, that a new department head at NorthWestern U. would see fit to think like Corporate America rather than meeting the = needs of certain students. There are frivolous programs offered at most = Universities that could be cut first. You know the ones, that are Politically Correct, = but of spurious value. These take a toll on available funds too. Usually they are wasteful programs promoted by the US congress to placate certain groups, and agendas. The squeeky wheel gets the grease. The Musical arts are usually the first to go. Music is the glue that holds history and civilization together. What passes for music these days especially in the popular venue can be quite vulgar, with everyone trying to outdo the = others to achieve new moral lows. Ex. The Viacom production of the half time show at the super bowl. Room for music in the grade schools, Public Schools to be exact, has given way to agenda programs of little value. When will = we say enough is enough, and demand good teaching in areas beneficial to the students, rather than wasteful brainwashing agenda programs. When are we going to take back our schools to teach students, rather than indoctrination on the leftest, elitest agenda? This has got to stop somewhere so that students can make prudent choices for their future and learn what they really want to learn. This includes study of organ and piano performance, choral conducting, and orchestral srtudies.   Ron Severin    
(back) Subject: Re: Organ Department at U. of Indiana, Urbana-Champaign From: "Alicia Zeilenga" <azeilenga@theatreorgans.com> Date: Fri, 13 Feb 2004 00:45:18 -0600   First of all, Indiana University, Bloomington, (UIB) has an apparently thriving organ division. I am a student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. (We are famous for Engineering, Chief Illiniwek, and probably a few other things that I can't think of after midnight.) The "UI" in the organ world is probably University of Iowa. I think I have already posted this link, but this should answer almost all the questions about UIUC. The teacher is Dana Robinson. http://www2.uiuc.edu/ro/agoui/ The number of students who will be in the program next fall is not clear yet. If we don't get anyone else, it will be a total of 2 undergraduates. We do have 4 grads graduating this May.   Alicia Zeilenga Sub-Dean AGO@UI "Santa Caecilia, ora pro nobis"     -----Original Message----- From: "Malcolm Wechsler" <manderusa@earthlink.net> To: "PipeChat" <pipechat@pipechat.org>, <azeilenga@theatreorgans.com> Date: Thu, 12 Feb 2004 22:11:37 -0500 Subject: Organ Department at U. of Indiana, Urbana-Champaign   > Dear Alicia, > > There has been a fair amount of chat on this list and also on PipOrg-L > about > the relative strengths and weaknesses of various university Organ > Departments, more so in light of developments at Northwestern, Hartt > School > in Hartford, New England Conservatory and other once flourishing Organ > classes.
