MUSICAL LIFE:WE ARE AllMusic's CHILDRENby mJ BuellAPRIL's Child ...Don't be fooled by those daintyfingers at rest. They were alreadyplaying the Haydn Concerto withthe Royal ConservatoryOrchestra. Studying at Juilliard,she played her Town Hall debutin NYC at 14, after sharing first prize in the High Schoolof the Performing Arts Concerto Competition with MurrayPerahia; and then impressing the likes of composersKarlheinz Stockhausen, Gyorgy Ligeti and Pierre Boulez.(photo: circa 1958, taken in Ottawa.)Think you know who APRIL's child is?Send your best guess tomusicschildren@thewholenote.com(please provide your mailing address, just in case yourname is drawn!)Winners will be selected by random draw among correctreplies received by April 15 2009.Congratulations to our MARCH winners!TICKETS! for Karen Wiseman to hear NEXUS (Sun Apr05 , 7:30pm) at The Glenn Gould Studio: world premieres ofworks by Eric Ewazen and marimba virtuoso Gordon Stout,new arrangements for keyboard percussion of John Cage' senigmatic Chess Pieces, and Arvo Part's haunting Spiegel imSpiegel.CDS! for Melania Varjabed and Monika DelmosDrumtalker: two major works for percussion quintet: TheInvisible Proverb (Hartenberger) and Percussion SonataNumber 2 (Schickele); four medleys of famous popular songsfrom the 1920s, arranged by xylophone virtuoso Bob Becker.Wings: the 15th CD on the group' s own 'NEXUS' label;arrangements by NEXUS members of popular songs bydistinguished Japanese composer, Toru Takemitsu, a friendand mentor to NEXUS from the late 1960s until his death in1996; original compositions by NEXUS members.Music's Children gratefully acknowledges Colin Eatock,Bonnie Scheckter, NEXUS (www.nexuspercussion.com)and Linda Litwack.MARCH's CHILD ........ was Russell Hartenberger: amember of the percussionensemble NEXUS, also the SteveReich Ensemble. He is aprofessor of percussion, theChair of Graduate Education,and the Dean (since October2007) of University of Toronto'sFaculty of Music.A Musical RideSeated together on a bus, if Iasked you what work you do, whatwould you say?I get this question going throughthe customs line at the airport. Itell them I'm a musician, and ifthey inquire further, I tell them Iplay drums or percussion. Thatresponse has often led to a longdiscussion with the customs agentabout their favourite drummers.Earliest musical memory?.. . helping my Dad ring the bell inthe church steeple in our smalltown. My Dad would lift me up tohold onto the rope and let the ropepull me up and down as thechurch bell rang.Music in your family?In your early life?My Mother played the churchorgan and taught piano every dayafter school and all day onSaturdays. A stickler forrhythmic precision with herstudents - she had them play witha metronome regularly, andcounted out loud as they played .Dad stopped playing trumpetwhen I was young, but wouldoccasionally pull out his horn, gothrough the intriguing process oflubricating the valves, and playthe high school fight song. Onesister directed church and"Subdivide and conquer!" the key to playing musicwith accurate rhythm and a good sense of time iskeeping a rhythmic grid going on in your head andorganizing the sounds you make in that grid.community choirs, and my other sisterplayed the clarinet in school bands.My sister and I used to make up a pianopiece we called "Thunder and Lightning".One of us would play chord clusters in thebass register while the other would playcrashes of sound in the high register.I was also the mascot for the local highschool band and attended many of theirrehearsals, especially during marchingband season.My wife, who is a visual artist, playsthe cello, piano, and recorder. My twodaughters sing in choirs and playinstruments. Neither is pursuing a career inmusic, although they are both extremelytalented musicians.First instrument? Ambitions?My first real instrument was the snaredrum, which I began playing in the Grade6 school band. I had a wonderfulpercussion teacher named Alan Abel whenI began taking lessons at age eleven.Hooked on percussion I aspired to followin Mr. Abel's footsteps. Prior to my snaredrum days, I wanted to be a secondbaseman.Anything you would say to the youngperson in that childhood photo?You'll never in your wildest dreamsimagine the wonderful life you have instore for you!index of advertisersACADEMY CONCERT SERIES 35 CHRIST CHURCH DEER PARK JAZZ VESPERS 22 HYMN Soc1ETY47 ORCHESTRAS MISSISSAUGA 31 SYRINX CONCERTS 40ALOEBURGH CONNECTION 36 CHRISTINA PETROWSKA OUILICO 18 JAZZ @ROYAL YORK 22 0RGANIX 10 T AFELMU~K 64ALEXANDER SINGERS ANO PLAYERS 40 CHURCH OF ST.
