·---· The JUN Os -

·---· The JUN Os - we've got them covered by David Olds, Editor, D/SCoveries While television ads get us all psyched up for the "best of Canadian music" on the CTV JUNO Awards special on Sunday April 6, there are a number of categories that you won't see on TV. The less than glamorous world of classical music is all but ignored in the glitzy coverage and we'll be left surfing the web or reading the fine print in newspapers the following morning to find out how our classical musicians and composers fared. WholeNote prides itself on its classical and post-classical coverage and DISCoveries is proud to note that of the 20 classical nominations, 14 have been reviewed in these pages in past issues. It is our intention to complete the cycle in our April edition, but in the interim we encourage you to visit our website ( and revisit what our reviewers had to say about this year's crop of classical nominations.
