"' li • -- . - - ·-- ON OUR COVER THIS MONTH: JOAN WATSON RECORDING SUCCESSFULLY The french horn, despite its wide pallette of tone colours, is not frequently heard as a solo instrument, partly beca~se of the limited solo repertoire available to it. French horn player loan Watson, associate principal player in.the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, has done something to remedy the situation by commissioning two new works for her new CD, "Songs My Mother Taught Me." A mix of classical, jazz, pop and original songs, the recording features the french horn in combination with an eclectic array of other instruments such as kalimba, xylophone, electric guitars and accordion in arrangements by Howard Baer, David Miller, Jim McGrath, Alastair Kay & Gary Pattison. Included is an arrangement for a cappella horn quartet of "Send In The Clowns" and original compositions by Christopher Dedrick. The CD, p~oduced and distributed by Peros Music Studios, will be premiered at a full-length concert as part of the Music at St. John's series on April 4, and will be available in retail stores.
