(back) Subject: Nashville Pipe Organ Encounters Part 5 (ULTRA LONG) From: "Jon C." <opus1100@sbcglobal.net> Date: Sun, 24 Jul 2005 14:33:02 -0500   Nashville Pipe Organ Encounters Part 5 (Long)   The Nashville Chapter of AGO took on a=20 challenging project by hosting two Pipe Organ=20 Encounters this July=85a POE for teens and a POE+=20 for adults. Many of the events were shared by=20 both groups, but during the day the groups went=20 in different directions. The activities of the=20 teen group will be indicated by POE, the adults=20 by PLUS and shared events by ALL.   As part of the Pipe Organ Encounters Week the AGO=20 also sponsored the =93The Nashville Summer Pipe=20 Organ Festival=94 open to the public as a gift to the people of Nashville and there was no admission charge.=20 Here is a link to the AGO Nashville Summer Pipe=20 Organ Festival poster:=20 <http://www.nashvilleago.org/pdfs/SummerOrganPoster.pdf>http://www.nashville= ago.org/pdfs/SummerOrganPoster.pdf   There are two site to visit for pictures of the Pipe Organ Encounters week.   AGO=20 site:=20 <http://www.nashvilleago.org/poe_pix.htm>http://www.nashvilleago.org/poe_pix= ..htm   Encounter Plus site:=20 <http://opus1100.catoe.org/gallery/index.php>http://opus1100.catoe.org/galle= ry/index.php   This will be my last report on the Organ=20 Encounters and will be a little on the long side. A few comments before I list the last days=20 schedules and organ programs. The days schedules=20 give little insight into the value of the events.=20 Starting with the introduction to the organ which=20 gave an glimpse of what comprises a pipe organ=20 along with basic nomenclature. The use of a=20 tracker to demonstrate the mechanics of organ=20 action and later the organ tour of the Austin=20 chest gave us an understanding of how the organ=20 works which I am sure was new to many of us.   Cherry Rhodes master class in which POE students=20 and POE+ students participated was great, Cherry Rhodes' enthusiasm and supportive comments was a very positive thing for the young organists. It was not a=20 critical review but rather some insight on how they could make their performances even better.=20 Along with this was some interesting insights on=20 what is needed to effective present music on and=20 this unique type of keyboard instrument.=20 Adjusting note duration for emphasis was one of the areas discussed.   Ken Stein presented an interesting lesson on=20 organ registration focusing on the harmonic=20 make-up of organ stops. I came away with a=20 better understanding of mixtures than I had previously. One point which was stressed in several lectures=20 including Ken=92s was the importance of taking time to take an listening inventory of the=20 stops in the organ throughout the complete range=20 of each stop. A stop you may not like in the=20 mid-range may have tones in lower or upper ranges which are much nicer and by=20 adjusting where you play in can have some very=20 pleasant results and also give you a greater=20 variety of sounds from a small instrument.   Polly Brecht=92s lesson on improvisation stressed=20 that the organ should always provide a meaningful=20 addition to the worship service, even when=20 filling during seating of late worshippers or=20 other interludes. By improvising on meaningful=20 music provides this effect. She suggested drawing=20 on things from your music theory to help accomplish this, for transitions and try playing in different modes   Daryl Miller provided some useful information to enhance your music= repertoire.   With the exception of the Master-class these=20 comments pertained to lessons given to the POE Plus group. From the schedule you can see=20 that the POE (teens) had similar lessons which=20 were tailored more to their needs. The Plus group=20 was primarily made up of active Church musicians, and some university organ=20 performance students. Although I was most likely=20 the least advanced in the group as a beginning=20 organ student, I found all the sessions=20 interesting and informative with things I know I=20 will find useful in the future.   Thanks for Ron Anderson of Rockford we have the following information:   =93One thing you left out however was the first=20 church visited by us adults in Franklin, Tenn.=20 for the afternoon workshop. It was the Historic=20 Presbyterian Church housing a Schoenstein organ.=20 This was the original site before certain members=20 decided to build a new church further out of town=20 and name it First Presbyterian Church - the THIRD=20 stop we made. Also, the Downtown Presbyterian=20 Church in Nashville - a national historic=20 landmark - was the original site until certain=20 members left for Oak Hills and formed their own=20 congregation at what is now First Presbyterian=20 Church - site of Tuesday's Masterclass with=20 Cherry Rhodes (and my organ lessons). Beckrath=20 Organ:=20 <http://www.fpcnashville.org/Organ.htm>http://www.fpcnashville.org/Organ.htm     Yes, there were some fifty churches=20 participating during last week's activities. I=20 counted 15 churches that I got to visit and hear=20 the organs. In the August issue of TAO, mention=20 was made that the APOBA ( Associated Pipe Organ=20 Builders of America) donated $20,000 toward=20 expenses shared by the seven Pipe Organ=20 Encounters this summer. Mentioned also was the=20 fact that as a result of such Encounters the last=20 few decades, many aspiring students of the organ=20 have enrolled in college and university programs.=20 From what we've witnessed, these events and=20 others like them demonstrate that the organ can=20 function in more than one setting, and that with=20 talent and perseverance the possibilities are=20 endless. In my hometown, we have an annual Pipe=20 Spectacular Concert featuring the different roles=20 of the organ as played by AGO members, a=20 Halloween Concert featuring spooky music and=20 costumed performers, and member and guest=20 recitals, workshops on service playing and=20 repertoire, a children's choral festival, and=20 other non-AGO performance opportunities.   Milnar Organ Co.'s webpage:=20 <http://www.milnarorgan.com/home.htm>http://www.milnarorgan.com/home.htm=20 under "links" has a listing of chat rooms..

GOOD JOB NASHVILLE AGO.   This will be the last you hear from me. I know=20 these have been long messages, but I wanted you=20 to have a chance to see what a great experience tbs week has been.   Since I spent one of my careers in TV=20 broadcasting where you cannot close without a=20 list of credits and these folks deserve the recognition.   Nashville AGO POE COMMITTEE   J.

He stayed up there until all the Masses were done, and slept overnight in the rectory. We visited him several times at the church, once at "Fugara". Quite a collection there, don't know if he ever finished putting together the Johnson. I loved that Jardine, the only 3 manual existing I think. Judy Ollikkala

(back) Subject: The other OHS days From: "Judy A. Ollikkala" <71431.2534@compuserve.com> Date: Sun, 24 Jul 2005 21:31:47 -0400   Not having seen any other reports on the days John Speller so aptly reported on, I will attempt to give a BRIEF summary of the rest, since I was there all week. Tuesday evening July 12 Hutchings 1912 Opus 1637 3M. at First Church of Christ, Scientist, Providence RI This was our only trek into RI, not too much to be said about this = recital. The church was stuffy and very warm, the recital lengthy due to a person speaking and added numbers, the organ sounded "muddy" to me, the soloist's voice = was somewhat overpowered by the organ registration except for her higher = notes, and Peter Krasinsky, organist here, has given better demonstrations. The hymns were unfamiliar and difficult to sing, with short improvisations played based on each. Maybe I was tired from several days earlier, but = was glad to get back to the hotel and watch the end of the All-Star game.   Wednesday July 13 Bridgewater MA is a college town in an attractive setting. The first church was the U. Methodist near the campus with Stephen Young, organist. One number featured a trombonist. (Sorry for lack of name, I loaned my program book to my next-door neighbor today.) The organ was a 2M Hook and Hastings tracker of 1913 Opus 2325. The demo. was well-done. Next was N. Middleboro, a "stick and shingle" building in a delightful old Village Common. Cheryl Drewes gave the 1895 Hutchings 2M. Opus 339 organ, restored by Roche Organ Co. in 1994, a workout. Her playing included a Eubie Blake ragtime. The organ spoke very well. (An upcoming yard sale conglomeration of articles attracted some in the back room.) Third was Marion Ruhl Metson back in Bridgewater at the ancient First Parish Church, also near Bridgewater State College. Decorations included recently discovered trompe l'oeil beneath a layer of paint. The 1852 2M. = E. & G.G. Hook tracker Opus 132 was restored by Andover under the direction = of Bob Newton who was present today. A collection of 19th Century organ pieces was well-prepared. The singing was great. We heard a lecture by Lisa Compton on the History of the "Old Colony" = while awaiting our noon meal in the college dining hall, followed by the OHS Annual Meeting. Then we rode to the National Historic Village of North Easton for 2 beautiful instruments. Kevin Birch gave a well-received program on the = 3M. 1859 E. & G.G. Hook organ moved from Boston to Holy Trinity Lutheran. The pastor noted they are looking for a new organist, the former one was leaving. What a wonderful organ for someone to have a position with! One of my favorites, moved and restored by Andover Organ Co. in 1982. Then Richard Hill, Co-Chair of this Convention, played the 1874 E. & G.G. Hook = & Hastings in the Unity Church where he has been for 28 years. The church = is a vision for the eyes, the interior designed in 1895 by Henry Vaughan of Boston with woodcarvings of 20 angels with ancient instruments on the pulpit screen, none alike, done by Bavarian sculptor John Kirchmeyer, 2 LaFarge large windows recently restored, and other treasures. The = cemetery at the rear of the building was designed by Frederick Law Olmstead, as = were much of the village greens and gardens. We had a little time, were = running late due to the meeting, to explore North Easton architecture, then back = to the hotel for supper (New England term for "dinner" elsewhere). Then off to St. Jacques, Taunton for an wonderful evening listening to Bruce = Stevens on a 2M. Hook and Hastings from 1894, Opus 1595. This organ is present = here due to the pastor's offer to have it moved from Fall River, French parish St. Mathias Church, which was to be torn down. Bruce played a great program, including the Rheinberger Sonata No. 13, and a whimsical made-up variation titled "Trumpet Clock", a parody of Mozart "Clock" tunes, with a story passed out beforehand to concert-goers. Will continue later - getting late - Judy Ollikkala

Just tonight I attempted to contact Carlo to ask permission to link to his mp3's on my website. W/in an hour I got a reply. He's in London right now apparently. The way I contacted him was to simply use his website, www.carlo.com and click on "send a message to carlo". He replied, so I now know his email address, but I won't publish that here, because its not published on his website.   So contacting Carlo is appently easier than contacting some of my friends sometimes.   Andy www.beating2windward.blogspot.com   On 7/24/05, ProOrgo53@aol.com <ProOrgo53@aol.com> wrote: > If Carlo Curley and/or Philip Brunelle are members of pipechat - or if > anyone happens to have access to either of their email addresses, please = contact
