Mather lnsurance ...... 4 Peter Chandler ........................... 6 Is it significant that two of the main stories in this issue of the WholeNote concern · concerts to raise funds for music-related construction projects? Both the beneficiaries,of these efforts - the.Tqronto Music Garden and the Bartok cottage in Saranac Lake New York - .are to be lasting memorials, not only to the composers to whom they owe their inspiration, but also to the value that this generation gives to the place of music in our culture. These are just a couple of the very encouraging signs that our society is beginning to mature musically. There are many others - many new works of music being commissioned, a significant increase in the number of renewals of subscriptions to the Toronto Symphony · Orchestra, the creation of a new chamber orchestra, ¢e fact that there are on average 300 conceits a· month in tllis publication, even the fact that this publication exists and has an enthusiastic and dedicated readership. As we review all these facts' and look ahead to a packed summer festival season, perhaps we could take / classical music off the . , endangered species list, and, without complacency, enjoy the music.
