Volume 26 No 2 | October 2020

YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE: this concert season continues to

re-invent itself, pivot and pivot again. There’s much to share, to

learn and celebrate: amplified as necessary in whatever media

work! Opera audiences usually frown on amplification but in

Dahlia Katz’s full-size photo (pg 22) tenor Asitha Tennekoon,

using the microphone pictured on our cover, sings from a

mobile stage that bears no resemblance to an opera house –

bringing living breathing music to shut-in retirees, health

care workers, and ordinary folks on their front lawns. Not your

usual art-music audience, but these are pivotal times. In music,

we rely on pivot chords to get us safely into the next key: we

navigate changes instead of bailing out. Let’s keep that good

intention close to our collective hearts, as the beat goes on.

— Jack Buell, Team WholeNote
