wholenote may '97 3 THE PUBLISHER'S PODIUM GENEROUS SPIRITS, ALL Our thanks to: the Sine Nomine Ensemble for Medieval Music, Gloria Saarinen, Mark DuBois, George Koller, Ritesh and Joanna Das, the Toronto Tabla Ensemble, Duo L'Intemporel, Courtney Westcott and Avery MacLean for their performances in the wholenote fundraising concert on April 14. Their generous spirit permeated the entire event, creating an atmosphere of celebration and good will. And the generosity didn't end with the performers. In addition, many audience members went home with door prizes whose value fa~ exceeded the ticket price. Our thanks to the Academy Concert Series, the Amadeus Choir, the Amadeus Ensemble, the Arbor Oak Trio, Ashley & Crippen Photographers, EMI Classics, the Music Gallery, the Music Umbrella Series, Naxos Records, and the Sine Nomine Ensemble for their generous contributions of CDs and concert subscriptions for door prizes. *NIMBL IS AS NIIVIBL DOES? Those of you accustomed to picking up wholenote in the lobby at the St. Lawrence Centre will have to look elsewhere (across the road at the Hummingbird, for example). We've been advised that the chairman of the St Lawrence Centre board has decided that we (and other free arts publications) are cluttering their premises. I suppose it makes sense. After all, anyone picking up wholenote at the st lawrence is already at the StLawrence, right? So, just as long as people can read the St Lawrence Centre's (free) wholenote listings in other people's lobbies .... *NIMBL: NOT IN MY BEAUTIFUL LOBBY! SEEKYEI And speaking of distribution, it had to happen. The list of places to pick up wholenote has outgrown its place of pride on our back cover. It's now on pages 28 and 29 inst~ad. Once again there's room for the list to grow ... so if you know of any new likely distribution point for wholenote, call us (or have them call us) at (416) 406-6758. More ...
