CANADIAN PUBLICATIONS Editor's Choice (above) Toronto Sinfonietta: Valerie Tryon, seated, will play the piano part in composer Alexander Rapoport s piano concerto based on Chopin's c-minor Prelude, November 6 at Bloor Street United Church. About fourteen years ago Polish choral conductor and university music professor, Matthew Jaskiewicz and his family arrived in Toronto. Matthew started a new performing organization which he called the Polish­ Canadian Society of Music-a small choir and a small pickup orchestra which performed in local churches to capacity audiences. His new venture required that he conduct an orchestra, which in turn led him flrst to 19th century repertoire, and then, by an interesting turn of events, into 20th Century repertoire and into commissioning new works by Canadian composers.
