This summer what better way to complete our eleventh full year of publishing than to feature some of the most intriguing artists in music today. In our July-August issue internationally-renowned conductor, Paavo Järvi, takes our cover page; with his intuitive approach to live music-making this Estonian is sure to captivate your interest.

Our extensive competition results coverage including those from the Montreal International Music Competition, Prix d’Europe and Brussel’s Queen Elisabeth Competition, will update you on this year’s winners such as determined young artists, Marianne Fiset and Caroline Chéhadé. And, what’s summer without a whiff of jazz in the air; jazz sensations Sophie Milman and Nikki Yanofsky share their soulful sides with us.

NEW from LSM! - While this issue is going to press, we are already hard at work and very excited about what’s in store for you, our readers, in September. The team which continues to bring you the music magazines, La Scena Musicale (a bilingual magazine for Quebec), The Music Scene Ontario and The Music Scene West (English magazines for Ontario and Western Canada) along with the prize-winning website, www.scena.org, will be launching a new magazine, La Scena, on August 27.

La Scena, our upcoming new bilingual quarterly publication will be the only magazine of its kind in Montreal completely devoted to arts and culture with distribution throughout the city and the Quebec City region. It will celebrate the Quebec arts and culture scene: music (the award-winning music magazine, La Scena Musicale, will be inserted inside La Scena), theatre, dance, visual arts, cinema, museums and festivals. Critical reviews, previews, interviews and in-depth articles will contribute to an overview of arts and culture that is as informative as it is entertaining.

Just in time for back-to-school, the inaugural issue of La Scena will feature the autumn cultural preview as well as guides to arts teachers, arts craftspeople and retailers, choirs, musical competitions and arts season

The launch of La Scena signals a new distribution campaign for LSM. While copies will be made available at music and art schools to contribute to the education of the next generation of artists, a large percentage of the magazine will be sent to targeted households in Montreal and Québec City to increase subscriptions. The rest can be purchased through newsstands across the province and through paid subscriptions.

Subscription orders for La Scena (or La Scena Musicale) made by August 15th will be entered into a draw for a pair of Opera de Montréal season subscriptions valued at $924, thanks to the company’s generosity. Be sure to order early!

We are thrilled to offer you more each year and hope that you continue
to support our efforts. Your loyalty and encouragement, and your
subscriptions, donations and other contributions are what motivate us all year round.

Have a great musical summer! See you in September.
