wholenote october '97 TRIBUTE: IN LOVING MEMORY The musical 'community is a vibrant one, abounding in very special individuals whose beings have been uniquely touched by music and who in turn have touched others with the magic of the music they perform. Toronto lost three such individuals recently, taken before their time in tragic accidents. VIIU. V ARIK was a double bass player and artist whose beautiful soul a.nd sheer lust for life ~an never be forgotten by those who knew her. DAVID LUGINBUHL, a gifted percussionist just at the end of a program of study at the University of Toronto, was only just beginning to make his musical mark. The memorial concert for these two, given at the Glenn Gould Studio on September 9th, overflowed with warm.musical and spoken tributes by their colleagues, attesting to how they were loved and how they are missed. And LARRY WEEKS is mourned by the many thousands of concertgoers who have come to recognize his ringing trumpet sound as principal trumpet with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. For the music they gave us, they will not be forgotten. In support of Hemophilia Ontario ~ b.i.,;.L%,'~tt£t% tl, Deutsche Presse ~ 13 _,p-05 tq" ... soccER NEWS "*~ SO
