December 5 to 29. 165 Front St. E. 862-2222. . . In fue course of several sales trips to Canada while with Faber, Alan visited the SolUld Post and got to know Alastair Grieve. When it becan1e apparent to Grieve that he would need a full time music manager, and after searching in vain for a Canadiari with fue combination of musical and publishing knowledge needed for the job, he offered Tait the position, a year and a half ago. Alan still plays the cello - for a while in Orchestra da Can~era - but getting the SoWld Post sheet music sales department up and rWlning tends to dominate his life tllese .days. He can draw on his extensive knowledge of the European publishing community (east and west), and also fmds the internet increasingly useful for sourcing music - with the explosion of desk-top music publishing, the internet will, he predicts, become a more and more important aspect of the Sourid Post's already thriving mail-order business. The virtual store will have a hard time matching the sensual pleasure of the real thing, though. From the naturally finished hardwood floors, solid maple doors and generous music storage bins to the colUltertop based on fue rib design of a violin and its "reflection",. a hardwood bulkhead beneath the ceiling on the opposite side of the room, the impression is that neither effort nor expense has been spared to make this space both functional and beautiful. "So people WilC want to spend all the time they need in the store" he explains. There is even a coffee bar and copies of Strad and WholeNote Magazine! The music store is open for business already, and its official "grand opening" very near at hand. Watch for an annoWlcement soon. When it is completely up and rurming it will be a signiflcant'musical and cultural resource for Toronto.
