Last night the faculty of music at UoT hosted a concert in memory of John Beckwith who passed away in December. It was a fitting tribute to a man whose 70 year career in Canadian music was massively influential. There were speeches; informative, funny, sometimes both, and lots of John’s music showcasing both the breadth of his output and its evolution. But there’s really no need for me to say more because the whole thing is available on Youtube. Recommended.
