Ref. No. 42

DATE:     Nov. 1, 2001
SUBJECT:     Director of the Newfoundland Symphony Orchestra to explore future of Canadian orchestras

Peter Gardner, longtime artistic and general director of the Newfoundland Symphony Orchestra and Memorial University's newest honorary doctor, will be administering a dose of reality therapy - survivor-style - to Canada's musical establishment in a public lecture at the MUN School of Music on Monday, Nov. 5, at 8 p.m. in the D. F. Cook Recital Hall.

Dr. Gardner's lecture is entitled Survivor! and will pose the question: Can the community model negotiate the threats and grasp the opportunities to show the way through the fragile and murky world of the 21st century orchestra?
