Written by themembers themselves, these Profiles offer an extraordinary view ofmusic-making in Southern Ontario. Every Profile is by someonewho is, in some sense, a public presenter of music - some membersare primarily venues, or educational institutions for whom presentingconcerts is a secondary activity. Some are self-presenting artists;others, like Choirs Ontario, are service organizations. All contributeto making Southern Ontario - not just Toronto - a real hotbed ofmusical activity.We hope you find reason to hold on to this directory beyond the lifeof the October WholeNote in which it is circulated. But do pleaseexercise caution in using this print version of the WholeNote Blue Pagesas a primary source for specific concert information as the year rollson.
