Snap Shots compiled and edited by David Perlman Snap Shots is created by sending an identical e-mail to three people, linked in some way, who are a part of the month's musical scene. Once they've responded to the first three questions, each receives a second e-mail with follow-up questions based on his or her first response. The initial questions this month were: Who are you, for someone who doesn't know you? What are you working on right now? Can you tell me about something you 're involved in in the longer term? And the link between this month's three individuals is that they are all involved (at least in part) in what we might call the curatorial side of things. GREAT CHAMBER MUSIC DOWNTOWN RICHARD GOODE Hear the incomparable American pianist play Haydn, Schubert and Schumann Tuesday, October 14 at 8 p.m. My name is Sybil Walker and I am programmer and operations manager of the Top O' The Senator jazz club and restaurant. I am currently programming the upcoming year at the Top O' The Senator, programming the Port Hope All Canadian Jazz Festival for September of this year as well as a concert series at the Royal Conservatory of Music which will run through spring 04. In the longer term I will be continuing to seek out Canadian talent for the Port Hope festival, broaden the series at the Conservatory to include master classes and jazz studies and programme the jazz club with a greater international component for 2004. Followup I read a piece called "Hot House Culture" - written in 1997 - where someone (Rich Saylor) talks about the Top 0 'the Senator as one of about fifteen clubs across North America keeping what the (U.S.) writer called "a national jazz tour" alive. He characterizes these clubs as being "a viable entity every day, an outpost, a bastion where someone made a career choice to promote the jazz cause. "Does "made a career choice" describe what happened to you? Yes it certainly does. My work history was hotel and restaurant management and the programming of the Top O' The Senator grew from that. There was an opportunity to book the club and I was able to turn a love of the music into something I could work on and develop as a career. Although I still enjoy being an integral part of the day to day running of the club it is the programming that is most exciting.
