0 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana Pipe organ concert to benefit St. Anthony restorati Karen Schneider, an Evans- ville native with a Masters of Music from Yale University, is preparing for an impressive schedule of organ concerts and recitals in the coming months. Her recent solo recitals have been in the San Francisco Cathedral, St. Thomas and St. Peter churches in Manhattan, and St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York. Her upcoming schedule in- cludes solo recitals in New York and at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. Her 1995 summer tour in- cludes concerts in Austria and Poland and two concerts at Westminster Abbey in London. But area residents will have a chance to hear her in early December, at St. Anthony Church, Evansville. A benefit concert is scheduled Friday, Dec. 2., at 7:30 p.m. Schneider's program will in- clude works by Franz Schmidt, Louis Vierne, Cesar Franck, Josef Rheinberger and Felix Mendelssoln, played on the 92- year old Schaeffer pipe organ at St. Anthony Church. "It is a fine, historic organ," she said in a recent telephone interview. "It deserves to be showcased." She said she is also pleased with the acoustics at the church, and with the fact that the concert is for a good cause -- donations will be taken for the parish restoration project. Schneider left Evansville after graduation from Reitz High School, to attend Ball State. She earned a Masters of Music degree from Yale Uni- versity. Schneider has been on the faculty of the North Shore Per- forming Arts Academy of New York and has served as full- time Director of Music at the Congregational Church of Manhasset, New York. She has served as Dean of the Nassau Chapter of the American Guild of organists and is presently Director of Music/Organist at the Church of St. Albert the Great in Kettering, Ohio. Schneider lived for a time in Europe, and was unable to re- turn home for visits. Visits from Ohio are easier. Two sis- ters and a brother live in the Evansville area. Karen's mother, Estelle Schneider, is church organist at St. Joseph Church, Vander- burgh County, and at St. Boni- face Church, Evansville. An aunt, Franciscan Sister Jean Wolf, also is an organist. Sister Wolf works in pastoral ministry at St. Mary's Medical Center, and plays the organ at St. John Church in Daylight. Karen Schneider has prac- ticed, but never publicly per- formed, on the St. Anthony ipe organ. She will have much easier access in Evansville than she will have in London. Westminster Abbey allows only two hours of practice for every hour of a scheduled per- "l.f I can get more parents to spend time with their kids/their kids 71 spend less time,in our court.

That's quite a challenge since every organ is different, she said. Playing such an instrument requires the use of the feet and both hands, while pushing but- tons and adjusting boxers and reading several lines of music at the same time. Athletic ability is required too, and Schneider said she keeps in shape with sit-ups, aerobics and yoga. Schneider studied organ with Peter Planyavsky at the Hochschule Fur Music in Vi- enna, Austria, and performed in the Linz Cathedral, Austria, and Christ Church, Vienna. In Evansville, she studied piano with Mark Hatfield. She has performed in organ master classes, has studied conduct- ing, and is an accomplished harpsichordist.

The woman was treated at Good Samaritan Hospital for minor injuries. No one else was hurt. After the robbers fled, Kramer said she discovered that she still had some money, set aside as a prize. She said she knew some players' blood pressure must have been pretty high, so she did the best thing she could think of for them -- she invited them all to sit down for one game of "Cover-All" bingo to give every- body a chance to relax and calm down.

Bishop Gettelfinger and Father Leo Kiesel, dean of the Washington Deanery, con- celebrated the three weekend Masses at the two locations. Father Kiesel, pastor of St. John Church, Loogootee, has been appointed as administrator of the parish, which has been without a resident pastor since the unexpected death of Father Albertus Lutterbach in July. The new schedule will be in effect, Nov. 26 and 27, the week- end of the First Sunday of Ad- vent. Father William Deering, diocesan director of worship, will celebrate Mass Saturday evening and Sunday morning at Bramble. Father Leo Kiesel will continue to celebrate Mass at Bramble on Wednesday nights. The last regular Sunday Mass at Crane Naval Depot will be Sunday, Nov. 20. Although the Committee for Future Parish Staffing has been directed to come up with a specific recommendation for Bramble, the bishop said what committee members learn in the process is expected to have impact on other parishes. Bishop Gettelfinger said the diocese is committed to maintain every viable worshipping com- munity, although some worship- ping communities will not be staffed with a resident priest.
