The Ontario Regional Office of the Canadian Music Centre (CMC) is also busy - planning for the season re-launch of our popular Composer Companions program. New to Composer Companions this season, the CMC - Ontario Region will partner with WholeNote in presenting this column every month. The column will highlight upcoming new music concerts in the GTA, providing concert preparation tips for the reader from the composer's perspective. For readers unfamiliar with the Composer Companions program, it was launched seven seasons ago, tightly linked with the Massey Hall New Music Festival (or NuMuFest). With a suspension of activity after the 2001 NuMuFest, Composer Companions continued, albeit quite silently. Now, with renewed support from WholeNote and participating presenters from the Coalition of New Music Presenters in Toronto, Composer Companions is ready for a rebirth on Toronto's new music scene. Sacred Music Society and World Youth Day Choir ToRONTO HEAR AND Now BRINGs vou Composer companions, concert prep by Jason van Eyk The' concept of Composer Companions is really quite simple. Small groups of audience members (usually 2-6) are paired with professional composers, who essentially serve as audio "tour guides" for new music. Participants meet with their composer guide at the performance venue prior to the performance time and discuss the concert progranune to follow. The group and the composer are then seated together during the concert and the composer guides the listener through each stage and step of the concert. The Composer Companions program is a great way to help demystify the world of new music, gain new insights, and meet exciting and engaging members of Toronto's creative community. But, more importantly, Composer Companions is a fantastic way to have a great concert experience! While patrons with little or no musical background are highly encouraged to participate, the Composer Companions program is not just for those who are new to new music. Over the past seven seasons the CMC - Ontario Region has matched composers with students, teachers, executives, retirees, artists from other disciplines,joumalists, as well as some amateur and professional musicians. The program also has been graced with the essential support of many established and emerging CMC Associate Composers over the past seven seasons, including Wende Bartley, Rose Bolton, Chan Ka Nin, Michael Colgrass, Omar Daniel, Ted Dawson, Daniel Foley; Christos Hatzis, Alice Ho, Michael Hynes, Irene Johansen, Henry Kucharzyk, Jim Montgomery, David Parsons, James Rolfe, Jeffrey Ryan, Linda C. Smith, Paul Steenhuisen, and Timothy Sullivan. With an ever-evolving roster of participating composers, you may expect that more of Toronto's finest musical creators will be acting as composer guides in the season ahead. Couples, families, student groups and other informal groups can easily arrange to have a composer guide for tlle evening at no cost, thanks to , the CMC- Ontario Region and participating new music presenters. The first concerts this season for which the Composer Companions program will be available are the Piano Marathon series co-presented by New Music Concerts and the Music Gallery. The concert will be held at the Music Gallery, Church of Saint Open Call to Music Lovers All The King's Voices is a 40 member mixed voice choir that is seeking new singers of all ranges for September.
