The Music Scene Winter 2010 Issue to Appear

The Winter 2010 issue of The Music Scene will be distributed on November 16 and the deadline for advertising is November 9, 2009. 

The Winter 2010 issue of The Music Scene will be a special focus on Education. Our cover features an in-depth spread on the world-renowned El Sistema music education program created by Jose Abreu. The Venezuelan system provides free music education to lower-income children and has since spawned many similar programs across the globe, including a couple in Canada. The issue will also feature The Music Scene's annual Guide to Higher Education. Nowhere else can students or parents find such a complete and easy-to-follow summary of the country's top music programs. Complementing our guide are interviews with top music educators, in-depth reviews of the best programs, and updates on higher-education news, including an overview of the most exciting musicological research from the past year. We will also look at new pianos from Yamaha and Roland.

Our winter 2010 issue will also celebrate the Canadian Music Centre's 50th anniversary and the Canadian Opera Company's 60th anniversary. The COC's new artistic director Johannes Debus will also be the subject of a featured interview. We also look at the innovative Calgary Opera. All this and our CD/DVD/Book reviews and our Southern Ontario and Ottawa concert picks for November to March.

The Music Scene reaches over 50,000 readers with 25,000 copies distributed in Ontario and English Canada.
