WE ARE All Music's CHILDRENby mJBuellOctober's Child?Already on the podium! And what agreat face for radio!Photo: circa 1944, at grandmashouse in Winkler Manitoba.Think you know who OCWBER'schild is?SEPTEMBER's Child ..."When I was nine years old, my Dad came home from work oneday and asked if I would be interested in joining the Whitby JuniorBand's beginner class. It was being run by one of my Dad's coworkersat DuPont Canada, Stan Redfearn. It sounded intriguing, Ihad tried organized hockey (too cold) and Cub Scouts (strangebeanie cap)" .... says Ray Tiv.ard, co-founder and Executive Directorof Canada's award-winning professional Hannaford Street SilverBand, which celebrates its 25th Anniversary this year. Rayoversees the activities of both the HSSB and the Hannaford YouthProgram (65 enrolled so far this season).Ray is also a founding member of the acclaimed brass quintet,True North Brass, who are celebrating their tenth anniversary thisyear and a member of the National Ballet Orchestra and the CanadianOpera Company Orchestra. Ray lives in Sharon, Ontario,with his wife, former National Ballet dancer Alexandra Auld, theirthree children, James, Christine and Alexander and three standardpoodles, Parker, Penn and Abby.Earliest musical memory?My Mom tells me that she took me to the local Christmas Paradewhen I was around 4 and I insisted upon following the band downthe street! Still feel the same way almost 50 years later.Other musicians in your family?Both my parents come from large families: my dad was I of 9(Newfoundland) and my mother was 1 of 13 (Eastern Ontario).Lots of music appreciation! No professionals per se but as youmight expect from such large families, I have cousins I have nevermet!At the time the photograph was taken ... ?That photo represents my introduction to organized music. Myfriends in the Whitby Junior Band became my second family, someof whom I still keep in touch with ...First experiences of making music, alone and with others?My first Band director, Stanley Redfearn, sang all our parts in aloud baritone voice and chain smoked. I can still hear his voice inmy ear surrounded by a cloud of smoke!What was your first instrument? When did you start playing thetrumpet?I began playing the Euphonium when I was 9. Stuck with that untilgrade 10 when I switched to trumpet. My friends needed a " hornline" in a Blood, Sweat and Tears cover band. Seemed like a goodidea at the time ... We had a ball and certainly moved up the socialhierarchy at our high school. ..When did you begin to think of yourself as a musician?Probably late high school. I was one of those typical high schoolband trumpeters. Played way too loud! The first few years of Universitywere humbling when I realized how little I knew. Thingspicked up when I had the opportunity to go the Banff School of Finearts. The two summers there sealed my fate ...If you could travel back through time is there anything youwould like to tell the young person in that childhood photo?Well, I would try and explain that parades are a good metaphor forlife. Better to be in the parade then standing around watching it goby ... even if it does rain once in a while .. . !Send your best guess sure to send us your mailingaddress, just in case your nameis drawn!
