Special Recital Occasion Insurance. ~ Fast reasonable service from experts. THIS MONTH'S COVER Alan Gasser, musician INTERVIEW BY ALLAN PULKER PHOTO BY ASHLEY & CRIPPEN ~I grew up in a family where everyone sang, where music was part' of everyday life. It wasn 't until I was fairly old that I learned that music was something that people did at concerts!n Alan Gasser Alan Gasser is one of the most interesting, versatile and unusual musicians that I have come across. Equally at home as a member of the tenor section of the Elmer Iseler Singers, inspiring commuters at the Y onge-Bloor subway station with a moving rendition of "Ave Maria", singing a jazZ arrangement. with "Union Station" a cappella ensemble, conducting his community choir, Echo, or his Georgian choir; Darbazi or performing Georgian music in its country - of origin, singing in an avant garde music theatre production at the Banff School of Fine ' Arts or writing articles on music for the Globe and Mail, program notes for the Toronto Symphony Orchestra or liner ·notes for CBC Records. Unusual as his prodigious , talent is, perhaps what makes Alan truly special is his burning desire to put it at the service of the community. It is, he says, the aim of bringing music into people's everyday ' lives, making it an integral part of their lives, that "sustains me and gives me strength and fulfil merit".
