More Than Mere Music

More Than Mere Music
A first-hand report from Canada Music Week 2005 in Toronto

by Lindsay Kyte

Everyone at Canada Music Week 2005 (CMW) had the same shaggy ’70s style hairdo. The difference was the execs paid Sting’s hairdresser big bucks for it, and the musicians got it by choosing electricity over Magic Cuts.

CMW took place March 2 to 5 in venues all over Toronto. It involved celebrity talks (Mathew Knowles—father

High Energy Humour

Lend Me a Tenor

Review by Jeff Green

As the curtain rose on Lend Me a Tenor, the hilarious and naughty comedic romp produced by ACT (a community theatre) for three nights last month at the Carrefour Theatre, I suddenly remembered a nugget of acting advice a veteran Newfoundland stage director once told me. “You gotta convince audiences you’re enjoying your time on stage,” I recalled her hollering.

A Friend for Breakfast

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

For a time in the mid-nineties I lived in a three bedroom apartment above the Root Cellar on Queen Street in Charlottetown. Most of the people who lived in the building were about the same age with similar interests, so it had a very communal feel. The doors were always open, or at least unlocked, and you never had far to go to find a coffee and a conversation.

The Best Damn Pint

I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

The Trans Canada from Vancouver to Calgary is possibly the most stunningly scenic drive in the country. It starts off in the rather flat lower mainland of BC. By the time I reach the stinkiest town on the Trans Canada, Chilliwack, the highway starts to weave its way into the Coastal mountains. Before I know it I’m on my way up the Coquihala Highway. It goes up

Noggin' Walloper


Review by Lennie MacPherson

This year marked a third run for Enemies, perhaps the most original theatre being performed in Charlottetown in recent years. Since its conception, the cast and company have seen a few changes in personnel, but the vision has remained true—that is, a continuing story of equal parts passion and absurdity, told through an odd cast of characters, in the format of

A Flourishing Start

Fall Fanfares
PEI Symphony Orchestra

Review by Anne Bergstrom

Fall Fanfares, The PEI Symphony’s first concert of the season, began with a brass fanfare by 16th century Italian composer Giovanni Gabrieli. Two groups of brass players faced each other on opposite sides of the hall, playing antiphonally, answering and echoing each other. Conductor James Mark explained that Gabrieli was the organist and

Right and Wrong

Murder in the Cathedral

Review by Patrick Ledwell

T.S. Eliot’s Murder in the Cathedral is, among other things, a drama about whether or not intentions determine the outcome. Locating us in the strife between church and state in 12th century England, Eliot shows soon-to-be-saint Thomas Becket pressing outside his spiritual authority as archbishop, much to the irritation of his former friend King

Rule Number One

I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

Years ago I was a restaurant manager. Assistant manager actually. I saw the nightly sales. I helped develop budgets. I did inventory and calculated food and liquor costs. I trained staff and I waited tables in the meantime. But more importantly for what I’m about to recount, I saw just how slim the margins are in the restaurant business and I understood the
