May is an exciting month for La Scena Musicale as we feature our annual Jazz and Folk Edition. The first of two nationally distributed issues, it appears May 1 and continues to provide more of the essential information you need to plan your summer at home and abroad, including our annual Guide to Jazz, World and Folk Music Festivals (more than 180 festivals!). It is also a special issue on Women in Music. Composer and bandleader Maria Schneider is on the cover, while we also feature singer and pianist Patricia Barber. You will also find Jazz Festival picks and more jazz CD reviews. Lucia di Lammermoor is next on Opéra de Montréal’s bill, and we provide a musicological view of Donezetti’s masterpiece. The performance is also part of our next fundraising event: Opera weekend in Montreal on May 23rd. The St. Lambert Choral Society celebrates 90 years while the Guarneri Quartet retires after 45 years of music making, and we’ll provide you with a behind the scenes look into the 2009 Edition of the Montreal International Music Competition (Voice). The May Discovery CD features composer Francesco Tárrega’s (1852-1909) complete works for guitar, presented by Canadian guitarist Michel Beauchamp. The deadline for advertising is April 27.

LSM prides itself on its leading role in promoting festivals and, in addition to jazz, this month's festival guides will cover summer festivals of world and folk music. Keep an eye out for our summer classical festival guide in June. For more information on these guides, please consult:

Petition: Restore Canada Council Funding to Controlled-Circulation Magazines

The Canada Council for the Arts (CCA) has recently dropped support for controlled-circulation print magazines in its 2010 application process, rendering La Scena Musicale (LSM), The Music Scene Ontario and La SCENA ineligible to compete for CCA grants. In 2007-08, the Canada Council funded 106 arts & literary magazines for a total of $2,661,900.

We feel that all arts and literary magazines should be treated equally and fairly, and this means the ability to submit an application that is reviewed by a peer jury.

Consequently, La Scena Musicale has launched a campaign to reverse the Canada Council policy change.Please show your support for all controlled-circulation arts magazines (including our family of magazine) by signing up and circulate this appeal.

See our blog article for details: http://www.scena.org/blog/2009/02/canada-council-drops-support-for.html

Online petition: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/restore-canada-council-funding-to-controlled-circulation-magazines

  • Listening to Colette Boky's CD that came with the magazine. Thank you. It is good to know that classical, Jazz, World and Folk music are promoted in Canada, otherwise we shall only have the noises provided by Rock.
