La Scena Musicale presents a one-on-one meeting with this intense and genuine artist. CD Contest: Win one prize of 5 Turovsky Cds courtesy of Chandos and SRI Canada. Ends: June 17, 2002.

• The fame of the Studio de Musique Ancienne de Montréal has grown steadily in the last few years, thanks to its dynamic maestro Christopher Jackson. He talks about baroque voices.

The Bring a Teen program

La Scena Musicale is pleased to introduce the “Bring a Teen” mentoring program to promote the live classical music experience. Any adult purchasing a ticket can receive a second ticket free for a teenager. The live concert experience is one of the best ways for young people to discover the wonders of classical music, and we feel that this kind of program will help build audiences in both the short and long term.

In our May 2002 issue, we launched a new advertising campaign with the picture of a mother and daughter who are participants in the program.See
