Good on him. I wonder how much he hustled or invested for this opportunity. I really wish I could be there.

He doesn't know me, but if you happen to see him, tell him I'm pulling for him from the deep south.

Hmmm Canadian. They have more money for grants up there.:twisted:

A very impressive lineup of music. All in one sitting?

Wallace is a great player. Studied in Holland with Bornkamp.

As for the grant thing - you can usually only get money here for new Canadian works.

It varies from province to province. In Sask. you can get funding for specific projects like this, but your case is certainly aided by including Canadian content, or content from a Sask composer.

How helpful is the Ontario Arts Board Merlin?
