Buy tickets in large enough numbers, and there will be many more seasons of the excellent classical music programming WholeNote has documented there for the past four years. OFF CENTRE, ON TRACK The oddly named Off Centre Music Series has been a great success because of its top-flight performers and interesting thematic programming. It has been so successful, in fact, that it has had to abandon the charming but cramped Arts and Letters Club for the more spacious Glenn Gould Studio. Co-artistic director, Inna Perkis assures us that the stage will be transformed to recreate an authentic 19th Century European salon and can promise better sight-lines, superior acoustics and a lot more room to enjoy the coffee, pastries and conversation that follow each concert. First up in their new venue, October 3, are guests, violinist llya Kaler and mezzo, Linda Maguire, accompanied by Inna Perkis and Boi'is Zarankin.
