ties. With entrepreneurial zeal, that can be an inspiration to aspiring professional musicians of all ages, they have rented Armour Heights Presbyterian Church for a joint recital on Saturday, April 27. · I asked their father, Bruce Herzog, about his children's musical education. "It's a family thing," he told me. "When they were infants I played the guitar for them every night". When they were young children he took them to concerts by the North York Symphony. As a result they wanted to play instruments at a very young age, and were reading music before they had learned to read English. By the time Andrea was seven he knew he had a responsibility to nurture their ability and has given them lessons with the best teachers he could find. At the moment their teachers are Mayumi Seiler and Shauna Rolston. Andrew Aarons Since the Herzogs plan to continue presenting concerts, perhaps they will join forces in one of them to form a piano trio with the Glenn Gould Professional School scholarship piano student, Andrew Aarons. Andrew has won numerous awards and has Andrew Aarons even already had his Carnegie Hall debut last May, one of the "Young Virtuosos" recitals. Andrew will perform Mozart's Piano Concerto #24 in c minor on May 4 with the Oakville Symphony Orchestra, and will also perform in the Beethoven Society's concert in Scarborough on May5.

Arranger for the likes of Percy Faith, Andre Kostelanetz and Paul Whiteman in the late 1930s, and composer of two symphonies premiered by the TSO in the early 40s, he went to England during the War as musical director of The Army Show and conductor of the Canadian Band of the Allied Expeditionary Forces on the BBC. After the War the BBC, recognizing his talent, made him an offer he could not refuse and he stayed on in England to make his living writing and arranging music for radio, tv and film. Canadian vibraphonist, Peter Appleyard, heard Famon's broadcasts during the War in his native England, but the two did not meet until the early 1980s when Appleyard was hired to play in a recording session for a Farnan film score. The two have been great friends ever since. In a recent conversation Appleyard told me people like Andre Previn, Johnny Mandel, John Williams and Henry Mancini have admired and imitated Famon's work. A couple of years ago Farron sent Peter nine new arrangements for a recording project they were planning. The recording has not yet been made, but Appleyard and the Mississauga Symphony Orchestra will perfonn them on April 19, conducted by Skitch Henderson WQO is among other things the conductor of the New York Pops Orchestra, and will be joined by guest, Carol Weisman. That concert will be more than music; it will be history! TORONTO NURHAN ARMAN Music Director and Conductor CONTINUED Toronto's premier chamber orchestra!
