Canada

Grip by realities of brave New COVID-19 world, Artistic Directors and presenters around globe are being forced to make gut-wrenching decisions about fate of their long Plan concerts, satellite events and entire Summer Music Festivals still several months away. Many have fall, including Elora Festival, Collingwood Summer Music Festival and Toronto Summer Music, with latter announcing last week it was cancelling its line-up slat for July 9-August 1. Ludwig van Toronto recently took temperature of three of Canada's largest Summer Chamber Music Festivals, with each of their respective Artistic Directors sharing their hopes and fears, and they plan to survive these turbulent times. Tuck away on idyllic shores of Georgian Bay and held each July, FOTS celebrated its auspicious 40 anniversary last Summer, with world-renowned Canadian guitarist James Campbell also notably marking his 35 season as Artistic Director. What I am most proud of is fact that festival is still here, Campbell told LvT last year, adding almost prophetically, But I am also proud of our tenacity, and determination and love of small Northern Ontario Community that has made this international Music Festival happen every summer for 40 years. That ironclad mettle and can-do spirit will be put to test this year as Campbell weighs launching Festivals fifth decade on July 17, with three-week event originally scheduled to run through August 8. He remains philosophical about current situation with COVID-19 and its numbing impact on international Arts Community, assuring that FOTS would not technically be canceled but merely postponed until July 2021. Were still holding tight But has been turned on its head. We might have to push pause for this put this season to bed, and then carry on from there. We just need to be patient and wait-and see, Campbell states over phone from Bloomington, Indiana, where he still maintains home in addition to another in Parry Sound after retiring from his 31-Year faculty teaching position at Indiana University Jacobs School of Music last spring. This year festival plans to notably trumpet 60 anniversary of National Youth Orchestra of Canada, which has since cancelled all its summer programming including its latest European tour, as well as 50 anniversary of Canadian Brass, still due to appear at press time. Many international artists, including popular New Zealand String Quartet, have pulled up stakes for their North American tour this summer while others much closer to home, such as Elora Festival Singers, have also cancel, precluding their annual exchange program with FOTS. One immediate strategy thus far has been delaying opening of FOTS box office five weeks until May 12, buying Campbell precious time to make further adjustments in consultation with his Board of Directors lead by President Donald Sanderson, Executive Director Alison Scarrow-McGarvey as well as Artistic Director compatriots scattered throughout North America and overseas as situation continue to unfold.
