INTRODUCTION Summer, as always, is an all-new ballgame (or should I say "symphony") for WholeNote, as music, musicians and audiences flee the metropolis for the fields, forest, lakes and clean air of the hinterland. We are trying something netv this year, by getting our readers ready in June with this collection of profiles of summer music festivals. We will follow-up with listings for all their events in the July I August issue. We are also trying to spread the good news about the summer festivals by extending our distribution, both in June and in July/ August, to tourist information centres all'over Southern Ontario.
