OuR COVER: Beverley

OuR COVER: Beverley Johnston, percussionist extraordinaire After the first of two photo sessions with Beverley Johnston, photographer, Michael Shaw commented, a mixture of awe and disbelief in his voice, "she's always tapping on things, wherever she goes ... she ne~er stops". If this constant attention to the resonance of the world is the secret of her flawless technique and disciplined vitality on stage, then may she keep tapping! Described by one reviewer as ".. . a whiz bang player with the soul of a poet ... " the poetry of Beverley Johnston 's performance is all in the · way she moves - precise but flexible, fast when necessary but never hurried. She is a performer who must be · seen as well as heard. Of course, what you hear is - well, out of this world. Her premiere performance of Christos Hatzis' Fertility Rites at February's "Collaborations" Concert was a virtuosic synchronization of Johnston on stage with a tape of Inuit throat singing and electronically PHOTOS: MICHAEL SHAW synthesized sounds. Her talent, now internationally recognized, has taken her to concert halls around the world - Alice Tully and Merkin Hall in New York, the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and the 1994 Commonwealth Games in Victoria. On Friday, April 24 she will add another to the list, the Weston Recital Hall at the Ford Centre for the Performing Arts. The featured work on the program is the premiere of a new work by Canadian composer, Peter Hatch, called Psionic lnteiference, in which she will wear a costume which will be her instrument It sounds like a metaphor for the way she lives her art. She will also be performing a program of music for flute and percussion with Carol Ann Savage, April 4 at Deer Park United, a fundraiser for the Schoolhouse Private School on St. Clair Avenue West.
