Jeannine’s story

BTW, I encouraged Jeannine to write her book called On the Heels of an Organist. You can read the full details of the briefcase and other stories in her book. There are stories of her experiences that she thought were dreadful that I thought were hilarious. You decide.

Take a big breath:…GO

High School in 3 years, on to college, people are moving too slowly. 3 years, enough of that, on to the MM degree and, okay, it took more than 3 years but let’s just say she finished her DMA in organ performance and music history in a timely fashion. Thank you very much! If you think there are times I look like I am short of breath, there’s good reason!

12:30 AM, it’s pitch black outside. The bright lights on the stage of Beall Hall at the University of Oregon seemed extra bright at that time of the morning. You could see the dust flecks floating down from the ceiling. The organ class and Jeannine are sitting on the stage, some students are lying on their backs listening. Truly world-renown organist, Guy Bovet, articulates what needs to be different in the technique of his class of organ students. She admits she never thought 12:30 AM classes would be part of the path to getting her music degrees. But it was, and to slightly understate it, Guy was yet another person who thought way outside-the- box and made life even more intriguing.

If I may, I’d like to say that if you want to see how a dissertation can come to life and become a riveting concert, come experience From Sea to Shining Sea.

Spring performances of From Sea to Shining Sea

From Sea to Shining Sea

Jeannine and David Jordan had the privilege of presenting their organ and multi-media concert experience, From Sea to Shining Sea, to a variety of audiences in Des Peres (St. Louis), Missouri; Moorestown, New Jersey; and Akron and Athens, Ohio.

Invited for a return concert engagement following an audience-winning performance of the organ and multi-media concert, Bach and Sons, the Jordans returned with From Sea to Shining Sea to the Music at St. Paul’s Concert Series at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Des Peres, Missouri and to the First United Methodist Church of Moorestown, New Jersey where the concert was sponsored by an anonymous donor and the Southwest New Jersey AGO Chapter.

The Akron Chapter of the AGO and The Parish Arts Series of Fairlawn Lutheran Church in Akron were co-sponsors of the first concert in Ohio.  The spring concluded with a performance on the Organ Recital Series at The First Presbyterian Church of Athens.  Fifty high school students attended this concert – and for many, experienced a pipe organ for the first time – as part of the University of Ohio Summer Band Camp.  What a thrill it was to share the organ with these young musicians.

Following each of these concerts, it was the desire of the hosting organizations to include a second and even third performance by the Jordans of their unique live organ and multi-media concerts in an upcoming season.  Visit www.bachandsons.com, www.fromseatoshiningsea.net or www.aroundtheworldin80minutes.org to discover why you’ll want to bring one of these unique concert experiences to your sophisticated audience in the coming season. To schedule a performance of Bach and Sons, From Sea to Shining Sea or the Jordan’s newest organ and multi-media concert experience, Around the World in 80 Minutes, contact Dr. Jeannine Jordan at 541-905-0108 or jeannine@promotionmusic.org.

 

Tune in to PIPEDREAMS

Jeannine:  Where/when can one hear PIPEDREAMS?
Mr. Barone:  One can hear PIPEDREAMS on select public radio/classical music stations around the country, which can be found listed here:  http://pipedreams.publicradio.org/stations/  As some will note, various stations are quite enthusiastic about the notion of having an hour (or two!) of organ music in their weekly schedule, but other stations seem to think that they are doing a community service by including the program, even though they place it at inconvenient extremities of the day (very early morning, very late evening).  But something is better than nothing, and the weekly broadcasts of PIPEDREAMS on radio stations to reach a weekly audience of @200,000 people.  This could be a larger number, but we will get into that in a moment.

Regardless of the time of day or night, or the presence of a local radio broadcast of PIPEDREAMS, the weekly program can be accessed online at any time (24/7) wherever internet is available, with a very detailed website that includes links to artist biographies, CD sources, organ photos and specifications, at:  http://www.pipedreams.org.  In addition, you can link to an incredible archive of hundreds of past programs here.

Even so, with all of that accessibility and convenient time-shifting that online provides, still more than ten-times as many people hear PIPEDREAMS via the radio broadcast than via the internet (and that includes its global reach).  Go figure.  http://pipedreams.publicradio.org/listings/2016/.
