At least that's what I told my mother back in 1964!(about the time the photo was taken) . Angela Hewitt was a great friendof mine from Grade 1 to 5 in Ottawa in a little subdivision of wartimehouses. She and I attended McGregor Eason public school. We bothloved music (of course she was the child prodigy). I remember goingto her house and watching her play the piano and dance the "SwordDance".(Rick Comrie, Cambridge Ontario).. .Around dinner time I turned the radio on CBC to listen to the news.A program was already in progress and I heard a woman describingher concert tour and that she likes to stop in Ottawa to visit her momand recover from jet lag .... The nursing home took the initiative to bringin a little Steinway for her to play since the piano they had was not upto scratch. As I listened, it was sort of like your child "who is it" photoquiz because the woman speaking made me wonder who she was. Shegave a performance of Bach and Chopin for her mother and her fellowresidents at her seniors' centre. Ms. Hewitt reported (on the radio) thata man who for years did not speak, began to sing all the words to ahymn that she played. Residents and staff were moved to tears as theythought he was mute. Music is indeed the best medicine ...(Trina Wasilewski, Toronto)100 Voice Welsh Male Choir 34Acrobat Music 53Aldeburgh Connection 35All the King's Voices 19Amici 40Artists of the RCM 43ATMA Classi ue 5Buxtehude Symposium 13Canadian Opera Company 23CanClone Services 53Celtic Christmas 43Christ Church Deer Park Jazz Vespers 25Christ Church Deer Park NoondayChamber Music 30Christmas Opera Company 48City of Toronto Historic Museums 17Classical 96.3 FM 63CONTACT: New Adventures in SoundArt 22Continuum Contemporary Music 38Cosmo Music 21DaCapo Chamber Choir 46Doolittle Concert Series 31Duo Concertante 46Elmer lseler Singers 18Etobicoke Centennial Choir 52Etobicoke Community Concert Band 3828Back to Ad IndexEtobicoke Philharmonic Orchestra 38Eve Egoyan 34Exultate Chamber Singers 39George Heinl 14Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra 44Hannaford Street Silver Band 32Harknett Musical Services 21Heliconian Hall 27Hymn Society, Southern Ontario Chapter 39International Bach Festival 37Jazz at Royal ork 24John Steich Jan Jarczyk 24Kitchener-Waterloo Chamber Orch.46Long McQuade 16Marjorie Sparks 43Mikrokosmos 53Miles Nadal JCC 37Mimico Chamber Orchestra 32Music at Metropolitan 38Music Gallery 23, 34Music Toronto 7, 31, 33, 36, 41New Music Concerts 11 , 36Off Centre Music Salon 42Old Mill Inn and Spa 25OnStage at Glenn Gould Studio 2Opera Atelier 11Opera By Re uest 39, 51index of advertisersWWW. TH EWHOLENOTE.COMEarliest musical memory?Learning how to play the piano from themethod written by Boris Berlin (my motherwas my teacher): there was a piece withopen fifths in the bass and an Indian tuneabove ...Where did music, both formal andinformal, fit into your everyday life?Music was a part of life at home as bothmy parents were wonderful musicians. 1evidently asked my mother for a lessonevery day. She didn't have to push me atall. 1 found it fun. We have a tape of meplaying at the age I was in the photo-it'svery funny to hear, but also very telling,as I was obviously taught how to playmusically right from the beginning withgood phrasing, articulation, dynamics,and timing.Do you remember ever thinking youwould do anything else?At one point I wondered if I should go toballet school (about the time I was 14years old), but 1 knew I was better at the piano, so didn't.If you could time travel and meet face to face with the little personin that photo, is there anything you'd like to tell them?No, not really. 1 think life has to be discovered ... I suppose I couldsay, "Now, don't go skipping in the mud in that dress ", which waswhat I was always doing, much to my mother's despair!CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR WINNERS!( and keep up the good guessing!)Lynda Moon, Rick Comrie, Mark Szumigaj, and James Bailey willreceive The Well Tempered Clavier (a 4-CD box set! ); JohannSebastian Bach; on the Hyperion label (CDS44291/4).Anika Jehn, Jane Marvy, Tom Box and Trina Wasilewski will receiveBach Gamba Sonatas; Johann Sebastian Bach; on the Orfeo label (C693 071A).
