Gracing our La SCENA cover this month is Quebec’s beloved dancer and choreographer, Marie Chouinard whose innovative creations are often scored by the works of the great composers: Bach, Chopin, Stravinsky.

The September 2010 edition will also be the official first issue of La Scena Musicale’s 15th year. We are proud of your kind and constant support, and we promise many exciting reads. There is plenty to look forward to this month, including articles for flutists (guide to repair and purchasing) and for student/amateur musicians and teachers. Our annual Fall preview will also be indispensable, featuring the highlights, picks, and listings for all genres of music of the upcoming season.

As September marks the first La SCENA arts supplement of the publishing year, readers will be treated to articles on Oboro and Le regroupement québécois de la danse (both celebrate their 25th anniversary and a CAM Grand Prize win), Otto Dix, the Théâtre du nouveau monde, the Grands Ballets’s first production of the season, Léonce et Léna, and a very exciting interview with director Denis Villeneuve, whose adapation of Wajdi Mouawad’s play Incendies into film will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this September. As an essential guide for arts patrons, this issue will also contain our arts calendar listings of fall events, shows, and expositions. And to guide you through the calendar, our critics will present the most promising of these upcoming events.

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.

Please contact 514-948-2520 or
