August 10–16I will beattendingSimonShaheen’sArabic MusicRetreat inSouth Hadley,Massachussetts.Is it a typicalsummer foryou?Every summeris differentbecauseI usuallyplay atdifferentfestivalseach yearand thereforeI’m in differentparts ofthe country.And this isthe first timeI am bringinginternationalguest artistswith me on part of my tour.How does music-making in the summer differ from the rest of theyear?During the year, things are also very unpredictable from one yearto the next. I’m involved in so many different and varied projectsthat it always keeps things very interesting. During the year, Ialso have to take my children’s schedules into account. My oldestchild (my daughter) is in school, so just having that schedulekeeps us busy—my husband and I have to work around that schedule.What are you looking forward to the most?I most look forward to bringing our guests from Egypt. They aresuch amazing players and such lovely people. It’s going to begreat to have them here with us.Your most fond memory from a previous summer?One great thing about the summer season is that I get to see/playwith people who I don’t get to see that often, whether they alsolive in Toronto—or on the other side of the country—or the world.It’s usually in nice environments, at the festivals, etc. and thenice weather just makes things even better.Pius Cheung, marimba playerWhat are you doing this summer?This summer, I have several concert tours. One to Europe earlierin the summer. And then to South America. In between, there issome time, not a lot, for me to compose and work on some unfinishedcompositions of mine. And also because I publish my ownmusic, I have to edit the print copies of my pieces for the printerand then publish. And of course, I am most enthusiastic aboutStratford Summer Music. It is an honour to perform in my homecountry of Canada.Is it a typical summer for you?Somewhat. As my career develops, more and more concertscome by. And I am very happy about that.CONTINUES ON PAGE 16ada and around the world.

How does musicmakingin thesummer differfrom the rest of theyear?Well, every concertis differentalready, no mattersummer or regularseason. I thinkof a performanceas a living entitythat is a product ofcommunicationbetween artist andaudience. Therefore,in that sense,no concert is thesame. But perhapsin the summer,people are morerelaxed from thePius Cheungweather and have less work, so they have more time for art andmusic. The atmosphere tends to be warm and friendly. Whichmakes for a good chance for artists to have a musical dialoguewith the audience.What are you looking forward to the most?Spending time with my family and dogs in Vancouver. I live inMichigan now, so I rarely get to go back to Vancouver much.Your most fond memory from a previous summer?Many summer music festivals I participated in when I was astudent allowed a free dialogue and the exchange of artistic, musical,and human ideas. I love sharing with others, and feelingthat energy a person feeds back to me as a reaction of my ownmusical excitement.Jerzy Kaplanek, violinist, Penderecki String QuartetWhat are you doing this summer?Teaching at Wilfrid Laurier University, on an academic timetable.In my mind our summer season begins once we are donewith the winter term. So the summer excitement began during theVictoria Day weekend, when the quartet performed an all-Polishprogram at Symphony Space in NYC. (It was satisfying playingfor such an appreciative audience!) Next? Quartetfest (May 20 toJune 6), our own annual festival, an intensive three-week programfor musicians with serious chamber music interests, takesplace at our home, Wilfrid Laurier University. This year’s guestinstructors are the Arianna, Hyperion, and Silver Birch quartets,and Italian pianist Jeannette Koekkoek. The students: four quartetsand two piano trios, and the Herzog/McEvoy Piano Trio,recipients of the Penderecki String Quartet Chamber Music Prize.On June 7, the Quartet is taking part in the soundaXis Festivalin Toronto, performing works by Italian composers Piacentini,Gentile as well as polish works by Penderecki and Panufnik.Then on June 8, we perform at the Art of Jazz festival with JaneBunnett and Egberto Gismonti. Then we head south of the border…to the Music Mountain Festival in Connecticut, IndianaUniversity Summer Festival in Bloomington, Festival de Musicade Camara in Aguascalientes, Mexico. Of course, we arepleased to be part of our favourite Canadian festivals: Festival ofthe Sound in Parry Sound and the Ottawa Chamber Music Festival!The quartet is also returning to the 20th anniversary of theSouthern Ontario Chamber Music Institute in Oakville, a festivalthat means a lot to us.The quartet’s summer activities end on August 23 in a verymagical setting of a charming and historic church in Leith, Ontario.CONTINUES ON PAGE 18Trouble (July 7, 22 and August 4):pianist Melissa Stephens attempts tomediate a musical debate betweentwo genres, Opera and Broadway.Everyone wins, especially the audience,as the musicians discover theyhave much more in common thanthey thought.
