The Drive’s

The Drive’s Alive!Thanks to all of you who havecontributed to The WholeNoteTHRIVE DRIVE to date, not just forsome very welcome cash but alsofor your words of encouragementand support. The DRIVE continuesat, butthis month our BIG ASK is for your“lifeblood” (i.e. information aboutyou, our readers). See page 35 fordetails.Also, if you have given, or intendto, circle Monday July 29 on yourcalendar, and stay tuned, becausein cooperation with TorontoSummer Music we’re planning alittle event on that night and youwill be invited.It’s all a bit mysterious right now,but suffice it to say that any maturefestival worth its salt (and TSM iscertainly that) eventually starts togrow an eclectically interestingfringe! And The WholeNote’sJuly 29 event will certainly be anexample of that!Again, our heartfelt thanks!— David PerlmanFOR OPENERS | DAVID PERLMANWe Are ALL Music’s ChildrenLong-time loyal readers will know that the title of this issue’s Opener is the title of oneof our longest-running features/contests, compiled and edited by mJ Buell and usuallyfound in the Musical Life section of the magazine. The feature asks you to guess the identity ofa musician based on a childhood photo. Lucky winners get recordings or tickets to upcomingconcerts featuring that individual.This version of “Music’s Child” departs from that formula in a couple of ways: for one thingthe photo on our cover is not that of a child, and for another, we are not going to ask you toguess who he is (Rufus Wainwright). But we will still offer you the opportunity to answer aquestion for the opportunity to win prizes. So, read on!In her 1971 song River, Joni Mitchell longed for a river she could skate away on, “a river solong it would teach my feet to fly ...” Well, summer music in Ontario, and beyond, is a bit likea river that flows both ways, with home-grown musicians on the road heading out of town,and as many from afar heading in. Two Luminato concerts at Massey Hall on June 18 and 19,titled “Joni: A Portrait in Song,” will celebrate Mitchell’s upcoming 70th birthday and RufusWainwright will be one of the performers helping to make the event an occasion to remember.Like Mitchell, Wainwright is a Canadian singer-songwriter with an extraordinary rangeof musical appetites — seven albums of original songs, film soundtracks, song settings ofShakespearean sonnets and a full length opera, Prima Donna, which received its NorthAmerican premiere at Luminato in 2011. Child of two musicians, Loudon Wainwright III andthe late Kate McGarrigle, Wainwright is on a bit of a magical musical carpet ride right now.At last count there were 22 concert venues listed on his ever-changing website, just betweennow and the end of July, in Europe, the US and the UK. Somehow he also has three Ontarioappearances wedged into what is left of 2013, including one with the TSO in October!We don’t yet know if Wainwright will choose to sing Mitchell’s River June 18 and 19 atMassey. So “What did Rufus sing?” is the question you’ll have to answer for a chance to winthis month’s contest.
