Marina Omelchenko - Organist

Marina Omelchenko was born into a family of professional musicians and theatrical, opera and ballet performers. Her parents are flutist Mikhail and soprano Elizabeth Shuyanov. The creative atmosphere at home influenced her choice of becoming a professional musician. Her formal study of music began at age six at the Central Music School (Dushanbe, Soviet Union), at first on the violin and later at age nine on the piano. In 1995 she graduated from the Far Eastern Academy of Arts in Vladivostok (Russia) magna cum laude (with highest honors) with a major in musicology. Since 1995 to 2003 she worked there as an instructor in the department of music theory and as piano accompanist in the department of orchestral instruments.

In 1995 she was invited to become the head organist at the Roman Catholic parish of the Most Holy Mother of God in Vladivostok. It was her introduction to the organ, and it served as a powerful motive for her further professional study of organ playing. From 2002 to 2005 she studied organ at the Tchaikovsky State Conservatory in Moscow with Professor Alexei Parshin, Russian Artist of Merit.

Afterward Marina Omelchenko completed two further degrees at the famous University of Music and Dramatic Arts in Graz, Austria: a Master of Arts degree in organ performance (Professor Gunther Rost) and in church music. Among her teachers have been: Dr. David Jenkins (University of Saint Thomas, Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA, organ); Dr. Johann Trummer (Austria, church organ, liturgy, hymnology); Dr. Karl Prasl (Gregorian Chant); Professor Joseph Döller (conducting); Professor Konstanze Rieckh (cembalo); and Professor Franziska Hammer-Drexler(voice).

She has participated in master classes with such famous organists as Martin Schmeding, Ludger Lohman, Lorenzo Gilermi, Peter Planyavsky, Martin Baker.

Marina Omelchenko is the founder, organizer and artistic director of the concert program of the Roman Catholic Church of the Most Holy Mother of God in Vladivostok. In 1998 she became the first professional organist, playing the first organ concert in history in the vast region of the Russian Far East of whichVladivostokis the largest city. She also works to make organ music popular among young people, and gives lectures and teaching concerts in the history of organ music to school children and university students.

From 2004 she is the main organist at the Roman Catholic Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary in Moscow. She had the honor of playing the inaugural Mass and concerts on the Kuhn pipe organ (83 stops) when it was moved to the Moscow cathedral (2004) and on the Rogers/Fratelli Rufatti digital and pipe organ when it was installed in the church in Vladivostok (2003 u 2008).

Marina Omelchenko has been a member of the American Guild of Organists since 2000. She has several recording made for radio and for CD. She maintains an active concert schedule, having performed in many cities in Russia, Austria, Germany, Italy, Hungary, Poland, Spain, USA and China. As part of the Gregorian chant “Schola Cantorum” she has taken part in concert tours throughoutEurope.

Since 2010 she is an Organ soloist of The Beijing International Chamber Orchestra. (http://www.bico-china.com)

As a concert performer she has a wide repertoire: from J. Swelink (Dutch 1562-1621) to P. Eben (Czech 1929-2007). At the center of her interest is the music of J.S. Bach and composers of the baroque period of the French and German schools, and French romantic composers. Her playing has often received the highest marks from her colleagues and music critics. Alexei Parshin , Artist of Merit of the Russian Federation, professor of organ at the Moscow Conservatory and famous concert organist in his own right has written, “Marina Omelchenko is an artist with a rich heart. She is a great musician, perfectly equipped with a wide and professional musical education.”

JAY WARREN & THE SILENT FILM SOCIETY OF CHICAGO

The Silent Film Society of Chicago is dedicated to the preservation and proper presentation of silent films. With 80% of all silent film prints no longer in existence, the Society's goal is to heighten public awareness to expedite silent film preservation. It accomplishes this with proper presentation of the silent film — historically, technically, and artistically.

Jay Warren - Chicago's foremost photoplay organist brings all the color, excitement, and glamour of the silent film era back to life with his original scores for the silver screen. As a regularly featured photoplay organist for the Silent Film Society of Chicago, he has accompanied most of the great silent films throughout his thirty year career in his famous rousing style.

He has been featured annually for the society's highly regarded Silent Summer Film Festival since its inception in 2000. For twelve consecutive years he held forth playing the huge E. M. Skinner pipe organ for silent films at the University of Chicago's Rockefeller Memorial Chapel. He also performs film accompaniment on the beautiful Letourneau pipe organ in the Crimi Auditorium of Aurora University. Jay has also made several silent photoplay appearances on the incredible 5/80 Wurlitzer located at the Sanfilippo Foundation's Place de la Musique in Barrington, Illinois.

ABOUT "THE SHADOW"

The Shadow is a collection of serialized dramas, originally in 1930's pulp novels, and then in radio drama (and later film). The Shadow is generally depicted as a crime-fighting vigilante & he has been one of the most famous adventure heroes of the twentieth century. As a part of Americana, The Shadow has been featured on the radio, in a long running pulp magazine series, in comic books, comic strips, television, serials, video games, and at least five motion pictures. The radio drama is well-remembered for those episodes voiced by Orson Welles.

The Shadow debuted on July 31, 1930, as the mysterious narrator of the Street and Smith radio program Detective Story Hour. After gaining popularity among the show's listeners, the narrator became the star of The Shadow Magazine on April 1, 1931, a pulp series created and primarily written by the prolific Gibson.

On September 26, 1937, The Shadow radio drama premiered with the story "The Deathhouse Rescue", in which The Shadow was characterized as having "the power to cloud men's minds so they cannot see him." As in the magazine stories, The Shadow was not given the literal ability to become invisible.

The introduction from The Shadow radio program "Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!" spoken by actor Frank Readick Jr., has earned a place in the American idiom. These words were accompanied by an ominous laugh and a musical theme, Camille Saint-Saëns' Le Rouet d'Omphale ("Omphale's Spinning Wheel", composed in 1872). At the end of each episode The Shadow reminded listeners that, "The weed of crime bears bitter fruit. Crime does not pay...The Shadow knows!"

Lucia di Lammermoor is a dramma tragico (tragic opera) in three acts by Gaetano Donizetti. Salvadore Cammarano wrote the Italian language libretto loosely based upon Sir Walter Scott's historical novel The Bride of Lammermoor.

Donizetti wrote Lucia di Lammermoor in 1835, a time when several factors led to the height of his reputation as a composer of opera. Gioachino Rossini had recently retired and Vincenzo Bellini had died shortly before the premiere of Lucia leaving Donizetti as "the sole reigning genius of Italian opera". Not only were conditions ripe for Donizetti's success as a composer, but there was also a European interest in the history and culture of Scotland. The perceived romance of its violent wars and feuds, as well as its folklore and mythology, intrigued 19th century readers and audiences.[2] Sir Walter Scott made use of these stereotypes in his novel The Bride of Lammermoor, which inspired several musical works including Lucia.

The story concerns the emotionally fragile Lucy Ashton (Lucia) who is caught in a feud between her own family and that of the Ravenswoods. The setting is the Lammermuir Hills of Scotland (Lammermoor) in the 17th century.
