MUSIC IS BACK IN LONDON AND ELSEWHERE

It is heartening to see that many local and regional musical groups are giving or planning concerts. Most of them have limited room for a live audiences, but simultaneous online streaming allows everyone to watch.
Please look at our Special News column for information on London area concerts.
Over the past year we have been meeting with the members of the Ontario Classical Music Association. Until recently we have all been reluctant to plan for concerts with a live audience. A few (Orillia, Sarnia, Newmarket, Cornwall) have announced beginning programming in February or March of 2022.
One of the sad moments was the announcement by the Welland-Port Colborne Concert Association that they will suspend plans for the time being. They have been producing concerts since 1947.

We all face the fact of an aging audience but hope that the prospect of live music will bring them and others back with enthusiasm.

Biographies

Canadian Guitar quartet
The Canadian Guitar Quartet, featuring Julien Bissaillon, Renaud Côté-Giguère, Bruno Roussel and Louis Trépanier

Since its debut in 1999, the Canadian Guitar Quartet has toured extensively in North and South America, from one standing ovation to the next, establishing a reputation as one of the finest guitar ensembles in the world. The CGQ has appeared with orchestra across Canada, and has recorded three critically acclaimed CDs.
The quartet has been broadcast on both CBC and Radio-Canada, has had a special performance feature on Bravo! Television, was featured in the webcast at Chicago’s Northwestern University, on CBC’s overseas networks, and in various international magazines. Following the CGQ’s first concert at the 92Street Y in New York, part of the Art of the Guitar series, Don Witter Jr., of the New York Classical Guitar Society, wrote: “The Canadian Guitar Quartet made one of the greatest New York City Debuts of any artistic ensemble in decades … STUNNING !!!”.
Concerts in some of Canada’s most prestigious concert halls, such as the Winspear Center, the Palais Montcalm, the Glenn Gould Studio, and National Gallery of Canada, as well as their performances in seminal events such as the Guitar Foundation of America’s annual convention, Yale’s Guitar Extravaganza, the Norfolk and Ottawa chamber music festivals, have allowed the Canadian Guitar Quartet to develop an international reputation. The mix of dynamic original music and classical masterpieces make a CGQ concert an unforgettable experience.
“The Canadian Guitar Quartet tackles all with great brilliance and an optimal mastery of their instruments” (Guitart magazine – ITALY).
