Furthermore, 150 years after his birth, we pay homage to beloved composer Gustav Mahler – Norman Lebrecht answers the question “Why Mahler?.” And for those lazy summer days, plan to curl up with a book from our Annual Reading Guide. In it we introduce you to non-fiction and fiction gems which will be sure to intrigue the music-lover. Finally, 150 years after his birth, we pay homage to beloved composer Gustav Mahler.

NEW Endowment Fund: 
Our application for the matching program, Placement Culture, has formally been accepted: for every dollar donated to LSM/TMS, the Québec government will contribute one dollar and fifty cents. Placement Culture is designed to create endowment funds for charitable arts groups like La Scene Musicale/The Music Scene. Our goal is to raise $100,000 until November 30, 2010, which combined with the government contribution, will create a $250,000 endowment. This will help us continue our magazines's excellence and innovation for years to come. We are therefore launching at this time our 2010 endowment fund campaign. Please join our fundraising committee or make a donation.
