F O R O P E N E R S / D

F O R O P E N E R S / D A V I D P E R L M A NLast to BedFaithful fans of my little column both knowthat from time to time I go into a rant hereabout how this is the one remaining piece ofcopy preventing the issue from going to press,and how much I hate being the one responsiblefor the magazine not going to bed. (Or as a slightvariation, a rant about how much I hate the factthat it’s the magazine that’s preventing me fromgoing to bed.)So now that’s over with, instead, a late nightend-of-year toast to the best damned staff a publisher could ever wishfor, and an acknowledgment of the fact that it’s only because each andeveryone of you, at one time or another is “the last to bed,” that thislittle beauty ever gets to press.A toast, I say, to the hard-working people:… who work all night to rebuild the server when it crashes mid-cycle;… who stay through blizzards to make sure the 65 listings that comein after deadline still get into the magazine even though we could justshrug and leave them out;am because a certain boneheaded editor in chief puts the same articlein on two different pages;… who stay long past midnight rejigging the routes for our thirty driversbecause aforesaid boneheaded e.i.c./publisher gets the productionschedule so terribly wrong even though he’s done it 174 times;… who work half the night on the ad tracking sheet because they’vespent all day hand-holding someone who’s nevermade an ad before through the process of makingone;… who right now sits patiently waiting for thislast piece of copy, to make one last beautiful page;… so our loyal printer can get in his car at twoam and pick up page proofs;… so we can still make our deadline in spite ofthe fact that the publisher was so busy toastinghis staff that he forgot what he was trying to say,and sat staring at the computer screen for half an hour after writingthis sentence, thereby nearly undoing all the hard work of the aforementionedbest damned staff a publisher could ever wish for.So, what else?Oh yes, in case you haven’t noticed, dear readers, this is OURDOUBLE ISSUE.DO NOT phone me on January 2 to yell at me because The WholeNotehas not arrived at your library. I will yell at you for demonstrating thatyou do not read my editorials.To all, may music move you in many ways as you make your waythrough the joys and pains of the season.To those who make the music, thereby giving us a reason for doingwhat we do, long may you prosper (or alternatively, may you prosperbefore long).And now, to bed.—David Perlman, publisher@thewholenote.comKATIA TAYLORThe WholeNote The Toronto Concert-Goer’s GuideVOLUME 17 NO 4 | DEC 1, 2011 – FEB 7, 2012720 Bathurst St, Suite 503, Toronto ON M5S 2R4MAIN TELEPHONE 416-323-2232FAX 416-603-4791SWITCHBOARD & GENERAL INQUIRIES Ext 21Chairman of the BoardAllan Pulkerdirectors@thewholenote.comPublisher/Editor In Chief | David Perlmanpublisher@thewholenote.comCD Editor | David Oldsdiscoveries@thewholenote.comEvent Advertising/MembershipKaren Ages | members@thewholenote.comAdvertising/Production Support/OperationsJack Buell | adart@thewholenote.comListings TeamSharna Searle | Listings Editorlistings@thewholenote.comOri Dagan | Jazz Listings, The, etc@thewholenote.comWebsiteBryson Winchester | systems@thewholenote.comCirculation, Display Stands & SubscriptionsChris Malcolm | circulation@thewholenote.comPatrick Slimmon | patrick@thewholenote.comTHE ONTARIO ARTS COUNCIL IS AN AGENCYOF THE GOVERNMENT OF ONTARIOTHANKS TO THIS MONTH’S CONTRIBUTORSCover PhotoSN BiancaBeat ColumnsBANDSTAND | Jack MacQuarrieBOOKSHELF | Pamela MarglesCLASSICAL & BEYOND | Sharna SearleCHORAL SCENE | Benjamin SteinDISCOVERIES | David OldsEARLY MUSIC | Simone DesiletsIN THE CLUBS | Ori DaganIN WITH THE NEW | David PerlmanJAZZ NOTES| Jim GallowayMUSICAL LIFE | mJ buell, Ori DaganOPERA | Christopher HoileWORLD MUSIC | Andrew TimarFeaturesDavid PerlmanCD ReviewersLarry Beckwith, Geoff Chapman, Daniel Foley,Janos Gardonyi, Richard Haskell,Tiina Kiik, Roger Knox, Jack MacQuarrie,Lesley Mitchell-Clarke, Terry Robbins,Michael Schwartz, Bruce Surtees,Dianne Wells, Ken WaxmanProofreadingKaren Ages, Ori Dagan, Sharna SearleListingsOri Dagan, Richard Haskell,Sharna Searle, Adam WeinmannLayout & DesignBrian Cartwright (cover), Uno RamatSUBSCRIPTIONS per year + HST (10 issues)www.thewholenote.comUpcoming Dates & DeadlinesFree Event Listings Deadline6pm Sunday January 15Display Ad Reservations Deadline6pm Monday January 16Advertising Materials Due6pm Wednesday January 18Publication DateWednesday February 1Next issue, Volume 17 No 5covers February 1 to March 7, 2012WholeNote Media Inc. accepts no responsibilityor liability for claims made for any product orservice reported on or advertised in this issue.Printed in CanadaCouto Printing & Publishing ServicesCirculation StatementDecember 2011: 30,000 printed & distributed.Canadian Publication ProductSales Agreement 1263846ISSN 14888-8785 WHOLENOTEPublications Mail Agreement #40026682Return undeliverable Canadian addresses to:WholeNote Media Inc.503-720 Bathurst StreetToronto ON M5S 2R4COPYRIGHT © 2011 WHOLENOTE MEDIA INC6 thewholenote.comDecember 1 – February 7, 2012
