It made for a reallyentertaining perspective, overallmuch more rewarding than justLenny Who?trotting off to disconnected showthat matter) can be.So what do you do for an encore after a brainwave like that?Well if you’re Skrow, you notice that three well-known people in thearts, who interest you for very different reasons, not only all happenThree Lennys” – this year’s TJFF Skrow special – is born.Unlike last year’s theme which would have been of particularinterest only to readers of The WholeNote who were also movie orcomic book fans, this year’s event directly ties in with what we areall about. Lenny Bruce is maybe the least obvious musical tie-in.But if you think about it, he sure knew how to scat, in a manner ofspeaking, and it was in the very clubs in which the “devil’s music”found its home that he found his. As for Bernstein and Cohen, whatbetter time to view them through the same lens, especially in theyear that the Glenn Gould Foundation, formerly a bastion of classicaltaste, has broadened its criteria to honour Cohen as its laureate?In any case, we thought it worthwhile to bring the event to yourattention. As you know from a well-programmed concert, sometimesit is from the seeming incongruity of the programmed pieces that themost interesting perspectives arise.MIND YOU, YOU COULD SAY the same about the range of contentin the section of our listings that we call “The ETCeteras.”Just looking at the headings gives a clue to the variety: Galas andFundraisers; Competitions and Scholarships; Screenings; Lectures/Symposia; Masterclasses; Workshops; Announcements … etcetera!As diverse as the headings themselves are, the range of activitiesand opportunities captured under each heading is even more astonishing:Annual Booksale Fundraiser; The 2011 MARTY Awards;a Pulmonary Fibrosis Research Fundraiser; Choral CompositionCompetition; … The Lives and Loves of King Edward VII. You getmy point.What they all have in common, despite their diversity (or perhapsbecause of it), is that they afford wonderful opportunities, beyondgoing to concerts, to live an even better-rounded musical life.We urge you to explore and sample the range of material coveredhere. And we invite you, having done so, to bring to our attention(by e-mail to future events and opportuni-Taste and enjoy.—David Perlman50 thewholenote.comMay 1 – June 7, 2011
