Winter/Spring Music Preview and Special on Strings at La Scena Musicale

The deadline for advertising in the February 2012 issue is January 27.
Winter/Spring Music Preview and Special on Strings at La Scena Musicale 

La Scena Musicale begins 2012 with a special Winter/Spring 2012 Concert Guide, aimed to help readers plan their musical Winter and Spring. In addition to our usual concert previews and calendars, there will be three pages of critics’ picks for must see events (covering February to May) in Montreal, Quebec City, and Ottawa.

It's also string mania at La Scena Musicale. This upcoming February edition features French violist Antoine Tamestit on the cover. We also speak with the Hagen Quartet and violinists Jonathan Crow, Nikolaj Znaider, and Ray Chen, while violinist Carissa Klopoushak shares her guide to the instrument in our monthly "Instrumental Insights" column. Our philantrophist of the month is Jacqueline Desmarais. Of course, there is plenty more as usual, including our calendar cover profile of harpsichordist Mélisande McNabney and our jazz section and reviews.

SUBSCRIBER'S BONUS: all LSM subscribers will receive a disc of Schubert violin sonatas performed by Jonathan Crow & Philip Chiu free (courtesy of XXI Records)—email or visit
In September, La Scena Musicale transformed into two magazines: a separate English and a separate French edition; now, you can read all the LSM articles in your favourite language in one handy issue. The distribution of the two magazines has doubled to 50,000 copies (reaching 100,000 readers) and we are also pleased to return to Ottawa-Gatineau and Quebec City with 5,000 copies in each region.  

The year will also see the reintroduction of the Bring a Teen outreach program.

The eBook of Volume 16 of La Scena Musicale is now available for $9.99. Get all of 2010-2011 magazines in a PDF or iPad format for tablets, plus the 10 Discovery CDs in MP3 format. Visitez

Happy 2012.
