August 10-16I will beattendingSimonShaheen'sArabic MusicRetreat inSouth Hadley,Massachussetts.Is it a typicalsummer foryou?Every summeris differentbecauseI usuallyplay atdifferentfestivalseach yearand thereforeI'm in differentparts ofthe country.And this isthe first timeI am bringinginternationalguest artistswith me on part of my tour.How does music-making in the summer differ from the rest of theyear?During the year, things are also very unpredictable from one yearto the next. I'm involved in so many different and varied projectsthat it always keeps things very interesting. During the year, Ialso have to take my children's schedules into account. My oldestchild (my daughter) is in school, so just having that schedulekeeps us busy-my husband and I have to work around that schedule.What are you lookingforward to the most?I most look forward to bringing our guests from Egypt. They aresuch amazing players and such lovely people. It's going to begreat to have them here with us.Your most fond memory from a previous summer?One great thing about the summer season is that I get to see/playwith people who I don't get to see that often, whether they alsolive in Toronto-or on the other side of the country-or the world.It 's usually in nice environments, at the festivals, etc. and thenice weather just makes things even better.Pius Cheung, marimba playerWhat are you doing this summer?This summer, I have several concert tours. One to Europe earlierin the summer. And then to South America. In between, there issome time, not a lot, for me to compose and work on some unfinishedcompositions of mine. And also because I publish my ownmusic, I have to edit the print copies of my pieces for the printerand then publish. And of course, I am most enthusiastic aboutStratford Summer Music. It is an honour to perform in my homecountry of Canada.Is it a typical summer for you?Somewhat. As my career develops, more and more concertscome by. And I am very happy about that.CONTINUES ON PAGE 1614 WWW. THEWHOLENOTE, COMada and around the world.
