Tis the Season for Launches

There is always excitement in the air when a season launches; everyone is better at what they were doing a year ago, while their audiences expand their artistic interests.

I am especially looking forward to seeing g27's unusual audience engagement techniques, hearing Spectrum Music at a new venue from last year, and experiencing Continuum Music's 30th season.

BeMused Network doesn't have a "season", but we are planning an exciting "launch" event later this year with details coming soon.

Ahead of our relaunch, I am looking for volunteers to test drive our new services. Get in touch if you want to lend a hand and get a special preview.

In this issue, don't miss Soundstreams' "Encore" series for young professionals, featuring a few major theatrical productions in Toronto.

And, finally, check out the dance new and highlights below!
