Biography / Administrative History

Edward G. Borgens, Sr. (1904-1984) and his wife Helen Z. Donofrio (1910-1996) met in San Diego in 1936. He had arrived from the Midwest to play the Spreckels organ for the California Exposition. She sang on occasion in Balboa Park and traveled in the same musical circles. They met in 1936 and were married in July 1937. They were members of the Central Christian Church. He was the organist and choir director. She was a soloist and member of the choir.
Borgens grew up in the Midwest. He received a BA in music from the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. He taught high school drama and music. He began moonlighting as a silent movie theater organist. Finding he could make more money playing in one night than teaching for an entire week, he became a regular movie theater organist, opening new theaters in North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Minnesota and Iowa. He earned a MA in Music from MacPhail School of Music in Minneapolis in 1935.
During the 1930s, he hosted an early morning radio show in Lincoln playing popular songs on the organ. His base audience consisted of farmers who had just finished their early morning chores and were sitting down for breakfast. The show's theme song was, "The World is Waiting for the Sunrise."
In 1936, Borgens was invited by the California Exposition committee in San Diego to be the organist for the second California Exposition. At first he declined, as his radio show was very successful. However, a later invitation came during a blizzard, which ultimately persuaded him to move to "the land of sunshine and orange blossoms." In March he began playing the Spreckels Organ at Balboa Park, seven days a week for six straight months for the exposition. His days consisted of rehearsing with performing groups in the morning and playing in the afternoon and evenings. After the exposition closed, he remained in San Diego and demonstrated and sold Hammond organs at Thearle's Music Company.
Donofrio grew up in San Diego. As a child, she was encouraged by her teachers to take vocal lessons to further develop her singing voice. She performed recitals in the local community and for local civic groups. She followed her voice teacher to Washington, D.C., in the 1930s. There, she performed with military personnel in armed forces radio shows and events. She sang at the 1936 Democratic political convention. Concerned about the war in Europe, she returned to Southern California, where she met her future husband and continued professional voice studies with Chris Anderson.
During World War II, Borgens worked at Consolidated Aircraft (later Corvair). There he put together a comprehensive music department, which supplied programs for the Office of War Information to be broadcast to service personnel.
After the war, he resumed music retailing. He promoted the new electronic organs by Baldwin Piano Company as the San Diego sales representative for Gutcher Piano Company of Bakersfield. He became store manager of a retail music store in the downtown area. He expanded sales operations to include music stores in El Centro, California, and Phoenix, Arizona. In 1948, the owner, Fred Gutcher, sold each of the subsidiary music stores to their store managers.
The Borgens Music Company served downtown San Diego for many years. Borgens became the number one salesman in the world for Baldwin Model 5 church organs (200 sold). He sold pianos and spinets to individuals and school districts and arranged for the instruments to be on hand for stage performances and practice in their rooms for such artists as Liberace and Jose Iturbi and his sister.
After he sold his store in 1972, Borgens helped found and manage a three store restaurant chain in San Diego, the legendary Organ Power Pizza. Customers were entertained with classical, popular and Karaoke music played by professional organists. There was also a dance floor so customers could dance to the music. At the flagship store, he played a Moller organ acquired from the BBC. He also became organist and choir director at Miramar Naval Air Station. He died in 1984.
Donofrio continued her career as a soloist. She helped develop the San Diego Youth Symphony, serving as secretary and producing radio commercials for them. She became a popular voice teacher. After moving to Los Angeles, she continued as a regular church soloist and volunteered to do sing-alongs for recovering veterans at the Veterans Administration Los Angeles. She died in 1996.
