31 PUBLISHER'S NOTEBOOK continued from page 2 houses elsewhere in order to live in Canada. Many of them are now underemployed, teaching privately or working in areas other than music. So the school provides these musicians employment at what they do best, and makes an underutilized resource available to the community. And multicultural Toronto gets a truly international music school, with instruction available in a variety of languages. New York, Ms Liu points out, accommodates six major music schools. In her opinion, Toronto easily had room for another. Already the school's professional opera program is under way, complete with masterchisses with an impressive array of internationally renowned teachers. we will be keeping you up to date on the school's development. AMILY RCH Less happy was the news that the Church Of the Holy Family, referred to by John Tuttle in an earlier WholeNote article on liturgical music, was destroyed by fire early in June. During the reconstruction the two sung Sunday masses will be next door in the Holy Family School gym, where the acoustics according to organist/choirmaster, Peter Bishop, are surprisingly good. Daily weekday masses are being held at Parkdale United Church, which offered its help immediately after the fire. Musicians in our Midst: Portrait #3 Gary Kulesha On our cover this month, Gary Kulesha -- a Toronto native who has earned an enviable international reputation as a composer while maintaining an active career in his home city. This summer he will be equally involved in music in Toronto and outside it. In Toronto he will conduct the Composers' Orchestra, on July 26. Out of town, at the Festival of the Sound, he is responsible for the "Discovery" series of concerts of music by young composers. Both are the outcome of workshops with "emergent" composers, whose cause is a passionate concern for Gary. This concern has been at the forefront of his activities in one of his other jobs. For the past two years as composer-in-residence · with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra he has been instrumental in bringing together the TSO and promising young Canadian composers, such as Kelly Marie Murphy, Jeff Ryan and Barbara Croall. Gary understands the situation of the unrecognized composer as well as anyone. He wrote his first composition at the age of eight and around the age of 17 began composition lessons with Sam Dolan. After finishing high school he made private composition studies the focal point of his post-secondary school education. He earned his ARCT in composition and then with the help of Canada Council grants continued his studies first with John McCabe in London, England and then with John Corigliano in New York. At the age of eighteen he received his first commission, a march, for the Scarborough Concert Band. The deal included copying the parts (a lot of work) and conducting it, all for the less than princely sum of fifty dollars! Gary Kulesha has created a highly individual career path in which he is making an extraordinary contribution to the cultural life of the community and the individual lives of a growing number of aspiring composers.
