CONCERT NOTES, OVERVIEW continued from page 7 Music ·Mondays Paul Jenkins is a pianist, harpsichordist, organist and tenor (with the Toronto Consort). He is also quietly working behind the scenes producing yet another "Music Mondays" series of concerts this sumnier. The concerts, which take place at Holy Trinity Church behind the Eaton Centre on Mondays at 12: 15, feature an array of young professional singers and instrumentalists well worth hearing. Kudos to Paul for his contributiop. to music in the city in the summer! Other Events There are lots of other gems to be found in the listings. The Toronto Symphony Orchestra, for example has a "mini-season" in the first couple of weeks of July, starting with a series of outdoor concerts on Centre, Island from July 1 to July 5. On July 10 they are at Harbourfront Centre, on July 11 at the Toronto Centre for ,the Arts. and.on July 12 at Roy Thomson Hall. On July 31 the National Youth Orchestra of Canada will give its annual Toronto Concert at the Toronto Centre for the Arts, two days after performing at the Stratford Summer Music Festival. The NYO's Brass Choir will perform at the 'Music Garden, July · 19, part of a series of concerts there programmed by National Post music critic, Tamara Bernstein. (For more about this series, see Hear. and Now). Sinfonia Toronto is performing with 'the Ouzounian Trio on July 5 at Glenn Gould · Studio; Opera Mississauga is doing a summer, in-concert version of Verdi's Rigoletto at Hammerson Hall from July 14 to 21; the afternoon of July 15 St. Andrew's • Chureh is presenting a concert by trumpeter, James Tinsley, soprano, Jennifer Rasor and keyboard player, Dext_er Roberts; the same day in the evenin'g the saxophone quartet, Forty Fingers, will be perfomiing at Artword Theatre with pianist, Lee Piu-Ming. The Royal Conservatory of Music's summer Conducting Instinite Orchestra will present four concerts on July 24, 26, 31 and August 2. August 11 and 12 will provide another opportunity to hear an opera by Verdi, this one a staged version of La Traviata, performed by Centuries Opera at the Leah Posluns Theatre. Two Indian concerts:August 11 you will be able to attend a concert of North lndiari classical music at Convocation Hall; then, on August 17 the Toronto Tabla Ensemble will perform at Harbourfront Centre. · And right at the end of August the Canadian Opera Company will be doing three concerts at ?arbourfront and about the same time Soulpepper Theatre is presenting two performances by soprano, Patricia O'Callaghan. In other words, do get o~t of the city ·. when you can' and attend one or more of the wonderful summer festivals that you can read about elsewhere in the magazine. However, when you must be in the city, summer is no longer a time of musical drought in Toronto; there is lots of live music available pretty consistently thi-oughout July and August.

M4J 1 R6 l ·D/SC[~- THE WHOLENOTE'S CD FORUM DISCOVERIES is a CD review section designed to complement and enhance our preeminent coverage of Toronto's live classical · and new music concert scene. Debuting in this issue, DISCOVERIES features reviews by WholeNote columnists and independent contributors. CDs are considered for review in the following four categories: 1. New and Recent Releases - newly released (br re-issued) CDs relevant to our magazine's coverage of the music scene; 2. "Concert prep" - CDs, new or otherwise, which tie in with events being featured in the concurrent issue of the magazine; 3. "W,orth repeating" - CDs previously released, but still generally available, deemed particularly noteworthy by a member of our editorial panel; ' 4. "Indie list" - CDs independently released by individuals or groups active in the local music scene. Of course many CDs could fall into several of these categories, so the choice of where to list a CD will sometimes be arbitrary. The purpose of the categories is to ensure that discs reviewed have a strong connection to the'Iive music covered in· The WholeNote. In the .same spirit, we only review CD's readily obtainable by intere~ted readers. The price cbdes are based on the following single CD prices: Budget= under $10; Mid­ Price = $10 to ; Full Price = - ; · Special Import PriCe = and up. We think the reviews in the following pages are a logical and exciting extension of The wholeNote's coverage of the Toronto live music scene. We welcome your feedback and invite s°i.ibmissio11s. Catalogues, r_eview copies of CDs and comments should be sent to: The WholeNote, 60 Bellevu~ Avenue, Toronto ON MST 2N4.
