by Anne Bergstrom

Carl went on to study piano and brass instruments, playing

Pianist William Aide performs Mozart’s last piano concerto

by Anne Bergstrom

Do you know where the Porcupine is? I don’t mean the critter with the sharp quills. It’s a geographical place in Canada. Half-way between Toronto and James Bay, where gold mines used to thrive, it is the big town of Timmins and the smaller towns around it. Pianist William Aide once thought of billing himself as “The greatest piani

Clear Highland Air
Chris Norman Ensemble

Review by Anne Bergstrom

Chris Norman brought his ensemble to the Indian River Festival on a rare cool night inside St Mary’s Church, but they soon turned up the heat with their lively playing. The concert was called The Caledonian Flute, as its theme was music of Scotland. Norman is one of the best Celtic flute players anywhere, and he demonstrated his skill on four different t

by Anne Bergstrom

Nancy White first made a national name for herself writing and singing zany songs for CBC Radio’s program Sunday Morning, from the late seventies to the early nineties.
