The power of music

PEI Symphony Orchestra
Review by Ivy Wigmore

Maestro Shapiro warned us. The PEI Symphony Orchestra director introduced the November performance, Vishtèn and Shostakovich, by informing us that if we thought the only purpose of music was to relax us, we were mistaken. He spoke of the power of music to communicate, and the authenticity of the voices we were to hear that afternoon.

Talking Bands
by Darcy Cudmore

A lot has been going on for the boys in the Royal North. They recently put the final touches on their first full release with Jon Matthews at the Sound Mill Recording Studio. After doing that, they loaded the van and took off to Ontario for a few shows.

Island poetry: Mark Sampson

Curated by Judy Gaudet

Tableau

Chandelier patterns on the panes
You turn your ear to hear the drafts
Snow drifts hide their cursive lines,
endless dunes of snow in the field
They’re holding their breath,
a hardened heart that won’t soften till spring
Then it cracks like a season, like an estuary
freeing its floes, a reason for vanity
and a promise of something new
something unseen. You can see it

The Guest Book: Gordon Cobb

Always more to do

The setting summer sun chased me as I drove homeward upon the Glasgow Road. Actually it played hide and seek with me, flashing and disappearing and then flashing again. One second I was awash in fiery orange atop emerald hills, the next bathed in cool shade in gentle hollows. And on it went. Over and over again. Like a beautiful film sequence that mere mortals could never make.
