On the ground floor, an eighty-seat early cinema auditorium was created with raised stage to accommodate the organ console. The pipe chambers are directly below, and speak into the auditorium via Wurlitzer pattern horizontal swell shutters. Hope-Jones’ activities continued, his enterprises frequently sailing very close to the financial wind and usually being wound-up in favour of yet another set-up. He licensed a number of organbuilders to use his designs, including Ingram of Hereford. Problems at the time of this last partnership resulted in Hope-Jones emigrating to America in 1903, where he immediately set about replicating the type of business activities he had left behind in England.

Among his innovations in the field of organ design were improvements to electro-pneumatic action and the invention of such stops as the Diaphone and the modern Tibia Clausa with its strong 8-foot (2.4m) flute tone. The Tibia eventually became a staple of theatre organs. The thunderous 32-foot (9.8m) Diaphone was less successful, but made an impression on audiences of the era. On July 19, 2022, Kiana Casey was arrested for her role in the July 12th death of Hope Jones. The DA’s Office charged Casey, who was Jones’s foster guardian, with Third Degree Murder, Endangering the Welfare of a Child, Tampering with Evidence, Aggravated Assault of a Child, and Intimidation. She remains in the custody of the Department of Prisons. Robert Hope-Jones (9 February 1859 – 13 September 1914) was an English musician who is considered to be the inventor of the theatre organ in the early 20th century. He thought that a pipe organ should be able to imitate the instruments of an orchestra, and that the console should be detachable from the organ. [1] Early life [ edit ]Robin Richmond at the Wurlitzer Organ of the Trocadera at The Elephant http://stories-of-london.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/MWYW-21.11.63-ROBIN-RICHMOND.mp3 Hope-Jones's contributions to organ design were not limited to ingenious wiring schemes. He held numerous patents for innovations and improvements in various phases of organ design. He invented the familiar tongue-shaped stop tablets, the horseshoe-shaped stop rail, and double-touch (adding more assertive stops when a given key is depressed more deeply than usual), all of which became standard features of Wurlitzer and other theatre organs produced in the U.S. and abroad during the silent film era. It is time for me to move on, and I have no doubt that the SMP’s next CEO will lead the network into a hugely exciting next chapter; bringing fresh energy, ideas and vision. There are fantastic new opportunities in the bilateral relationship opening up and, every day, inspiring new leaders are becoming involved. I have absolutely no doubt that things will continue to grow in exciting new directions, and I look forward to watching as a friend and life-long supporter. The coming year offers unique opportunities for us to showcase our region, building on Lonely Planet singling The South of Scotland out as one the top destinations in the world to visit, not to mention the launch of the new Coast to Coast cycle route in the summer which is set to be a huge draw for cycling enthusiasts.

About 1889, he resigned from the telephone company to devote himself to improving the church organ, a subject which had occupied much of his spare time for years. [2] At first Hope-Jones licensed a score of organ-builders to carry out his inventions, but as this proved unsatisfactory, he entered the field as an organ-builder himself, being supported by Thomas Threlfall, chairman of the Royal Academy of Music; J. Martin White, Member of Parliament, and other friends. [2] By 1890, Hope-Jones had set himself up in business to build organs with electric action. [3] She won’t take a plastic spoon in the café. She turns down the offer of a free plastic folder at school. She tries to persuade her mum not to buy anything plastic in the supermarket, whether it’s a plastic ketchup bottle or a bunch of bananas in a plastic bag. Mr. Hope-Jones also developed Stop tabs as a replacement of the usual organ Drawknobs and thereby was able to increase the number of Stops available to an organist. An organ Stop is a component of a pipe organ that admits pressurised air (known as wind) to a set of organ pipes. Many Stops are able to imitate orchestra instruments while others produce unique sounds. Examples of the Stops developed by Mr. Hope-Jones include the Diaphone and the modern Tibia Clausa, which has become part of all such organs and synonymous with the sound of the theatre organ. He also developed the 32 foot Diaphone, which although less successful with the public, has been used, as a result of its penetrating tone, in the development of the Foghorn ,which was used in Lighthouses around the world. David’s last day will be late January, from which point Stuart Brown (Deputy CEO) will become the Interim CEO of the SMP, at the request of the Board. In 1914, Hope-Jones committed suicide, age 55, by inhaling gas fumes in a hotel in Rochester, New York, some months after leaving the Wurlitzer company. He had written a suicide note stating that he had legal trouble and that a suit was pending. This however was not the case and as a result the coroner declared his death "suicide while insane". [13] He is buried in Elmlawn Cemetery, Kenmore, Erie County, New York. Some have claimed that there were children [14] or least two daughters. [15] However the 1910 United States Census shows no family members other than the wife. Likewise, the 1903 immigration records show none.Perhaps a reader will be inspired to stand for the school council and persuade the school to adopt more green policies. This is what Hope does in the second book, Hope Jones Will Not Eat Meat. In the book, she doesn’t actually get elected. Instead, her class votes for one of her friends, Vivek, who campaigns on abolishing lessons and doing nothing but sport, a populist agenda which wins him a lot of support. However, Hope still lobbies the school, talks to the head, petitions her friends and their parents, and ends up making some important changes. Subsequently a new firm, Hope-Jones & Harrison, was tentatively formed in Bloomfield, New Jersey, in July 1904; but as sufficient capital could not be obtained, in 1905 Hope-Jones and his corps of skilled employees joined the Ernest M. Skinner Company, of Boston, Hope-Jones taking the office of vice-president. Working in connection with the Skinner Company, Hope-Jones constructed and placed a fine organ in Park Church, Elmira, New York, erected in memory of Thomas K. Beecher. He there met Jervis Langdon, treasurer of the Elmira Chamber of Commerce, who secured the industry for his city by organizing a corporation to build exclusively Hope-Jones organs. [2] Perhaps the most significant development as regards the theatre organ was his patented ‘Unit System’. This made the most of the capabilities of electric action and through a complex relay system enabled the same stops to be drawn on different manuals. By ‘extending’ a rank of pipes a range of different pitched stops could be derived from the extended rank by electrical switching rather than the traditional system of having a separate rank of 61 pipes for each stop, with a consequent saving in both cost and space required..
