There’s much to share, to learn and celebrate: amplified as necessary in whatever media work! Opera audiences usually frown on amplification but in Dahlia Katz’s full-size photo (pg 22) tenor Asitha Tennekoon, using the microphone pictured on our cover, sings from a mobile stage that bears no resemblance to an opera house – bringing living breathing music to shut-in retirees, health care workers, and ordinary folks on their front lawns. Not your usual art-music audience, but these are pivotal times. In music, we rely on pivot chords to get us safely into the next key: we navigate changes instead of bailing out. Let’s keep that good intention close to our collective hearts, as the beat goes on. — Jack Buell, Team WholeNote 13 MUSIC & DANCE | A Time to Fall for Dance | JENNIFER PARR 16 IN WITH THE NEW | Sound Art: Machine Language and Livestreams | WENDALYN BARTLEY 18 CLASSICAL & BEYOND | TSO, RCM and Sinfonia Toronto | PAUL ENNIS La Peste LES BAROCUDAS | Marie Nadeau Tremblay violon ACD2 2809 LA PESTE A musical journey that explores the theme of the plague.
