This month we are replacing the discarded line with "The Toronto Concert-goer's Guide" . Now, before you accuse us of the arrogant cultural imperialism of which some Torontonians are guilty and which has the tendency to alienate people in less fortunate parts of the country, let us explain that a "Toronto concert- · goer" could mean both a person who lives in Toronto and goes ' to concerts in Hamilton, · Oakville and Oshawa, and a Kitchener resident, who goes to a concert in Toronto. In other words our defmition of "Toronto's music" is events accessible from Toronto. The fear has been expressed in some of the cities outside Toronto where we have begun distribution, places like Hamilton, Oakville, Oshawa and Mississauga, all of which have very strong concert seasons themselves, that the wholenote will lure their audiences away to the megacity. Our solution - to publish listings for their events, which may well lure Torontonians away from some events in Toronto. With any luck, everyene will be better off with the publicity . in wholenote - there is strength in numbers. We wish you all a very happy beginning to the 1998-99 concert season. TORONTO'S.
