      ** Future for Pipe Organs secure in Europe
      In a post from March 2006 (
      http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/group/organfocus-newsletter/message/50
      ) I wrote about a new European Union law about lead in products with
      electrical components, which would undermine the pipe organ building
      trade. Through action on the part of organ-biulders, petitions and
      rallying the international organ community, the law has been amended
      to pose no threat to pipe organs in Europe. The site Pipes For Organs
      provides the details.

      ** Researchers find Bach's oldest manuscripts

      ago"

      ** Cathedral of the Madeleine hosts Organ Festival

      ** Healesville piano man creates organ haven

      museum."

      ** Trudy Pitts: Meeting the Next Keyboard Challenge
      "On September 15, 2006, Trudy Pitts will have the distinction of being
      the first jazz musician to perform on the spectacular new organ in
      Verizon Hall, at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts in
      Philadelphia, in a concert opposite the great singer Nancy Wilson. "

      By the way, Allaboutjazz.com has many other articles about the Kimmel
      Center organ, such as this profile:
      http://www.allaboutjazz.com/php/article.php?id=18420
      Mervon Mehta, the Kimmel's Vice-President in charge of Programming,
      has been actively promoting jazz using the Dobson organ, provided
      that a jazz musician brave enough to play it comes forth. Type "kimmel
      organ" into the site search box to see more articles.
