INQUIRE BY OCTOBER 23 for the NOVEMBER edition. The WholeNote Online DIRECTORIES INDEX Under the tab WHO’S WHO at THEWHOLENOTE.COM, you will find four directories containing detailed profiles of active participants in four areas of community life: music makers and presenters (our “Blue Pages”); the choral community (“Canary Pages”); summer music performance (“Green Pages”); and Summer Music Education. Traditionally we have published a single annual print supplement for each of these (Blue Pages in the fall, Summer Music Education in late winter, the Canary Pages in May, and the Green Pages in early summer.) During these extraordinary and changeable times, it has become more useful to allow for rolling deadlines for all these directories and to move them entirely online, so that directory participants a) can wait till their plans for the season have taken shape, and b) revise them as frequently as necessary if COVID-19 continues to thwart their best laid plans. So what follows here is an up-to-the-moment (September 15 2021 ) list of whom you will currently find in the four directory areas, with the BLUE PAGES heading the list as the most active of the four areas right now; profiles are being added or, as important, being updated on a weekly basis. And while most of the Green Pages and Summer Music Education participants activities may have ended for this year, we leave these indexes here for your awareness and future planning. This index serves two distinct purposes. It tells you who, in these uncertain times, is sufficiently far along in their planning to have joined the directories. And (via the website addresses that accompany every name in the index), it offers you a handy way to window-shop those websites directly. This is particularly easy to do if you are reading these pages in the online flipthrough edition, accessible via I wish you happy browsing, and if you have any questions about the directories, either as a reader or prospective directory member, contact me at ● Aga Khan Museum ● Azrieli Foundation ● Barrie Concert Association ● Barrie Concert Band ● Canadian Opera Company ● Cathedral Bluffs Symphony Orchestra ● Church of St. Mary Magdalene ● Counterpoint Community Orchestra ● DaCapo Chamber Choir ● Don Wright Faculty of Music, Western U WHO’S WHO?
