Wonderful Wurlitzer—Hope-
Jones Unit Pipe Organ Unit Or
chestra at the Victoria
Next week will be celebration week
at the Victoria Theatre. The entire
theatre has been beautifully remodeled
and refurnished and the opening will
be observed with a program of extra
ordinary merit.
Tlie most important feature and one
that will interest every lover of music
will be the grand opening recital of the
wonderful new Wurlltaer Hoi>e-Jones or
chestra unit pipe organ, which lias lust
boen installed at a cost of $25,000.
This great instrument is truly a mar
vel of musical genius and mechanical
skill. It is the creation and life work
of Mr. Hope-Jones, who had a wonder
ful career as a builder of pipe organs
in Europe and later in America.
This unit orchestra combines the
grandeur of the eathedral organ with
the finest symphony orchestra. Unlike
any other instrument of its character,
th" tones are effected by the touch of
the performer's fingers upon the keys.
By means of its many tone controls he
can reveal the same sensitive feeling as
an artist upon his violin, regulating the
shades of expression at will. In a word,
it brpathes the very temperament of the
operator, and expresses his every mu
sical instinct.
It is made Jtfi of innumerable pipes,
stops, strings, flutos, clarinets, drums,
cymbals, xylophones, harp and cathe
dral chimes, all at the command of the
performer, who by his slightest touch
can make eagh or all do his bidding.
The unit orchestra will he operated
during the presentation bf pictures, be
ginning MoDdav. March 15th. Each
actiou of the picture will be accom
panied by tiie proper tone expression,
thus lending a charm to the entertain
ment that is enjoyed only by the patrons
of a few of the most pretentious houses
in the country, such as the Vitagraph
Theatre. New York City, where the
price of admission is five times as great
as that of the Victoria Theatre.
It will be played for the first time
on Monday by Professor Twadell, who
will render that masterful selection,
"The Btorm," descriptive of army life,
in whieh the soldiers are seated around
the camp fire singing: "Tenting To
night on the Old Camp \l round "
Church bells are heard in the distant
church tower; the church organ is heard
playing "Lead Kindly Light;" while
the chimes are being played, the storm
is heard approaching, then the bugle
call to arms is sounded and the battle
is on; as the armies come closer to each
other, the storm is getting more severe;
a bugle sounds the call to charge and
the battle reaches its height; as the
storm dies down, the war ceases to the
victory of the United States; as the
soldiers near camp, the band is heard
playing: "The Star Spangled Banner;"
as camp is reached, taps are sounded
and all lights extinguished.
This big pipe orpin has a tone-board
manual with 65 stops and 32 foot
pedals, which makes the performer com
plete master of the instrument. He has
but to supply the inspiration to bring
about the most perfect harmonies and
effects ranging from a whisper strain to
tones of mighty volume.—Adv.*
