Spotlight: Home again: The Festival of the Sound returns to in-person live events this July

Spotlight: Home again: The Festival of the Sound returns to in-person live events this July

Festival of the Sound started 43 years and was founded by Canadian pianist Anton Kuerti. Five years in, he handed off the responsibility to Juno award-winning clarinetist James Campbell who has been running the event ever since.

The festival’s theme this year is called “Home Again” and will reopen on July 17 and end on July 31, offering approximately three daily events and 40 events over that period. 

“The feeling of coming home after a long day,” said Campbell. “Traditionally, many people gather around the piano, kitchen table or fireplace, whatever, take their shoes off and feel comfortable. We are trying to create that feeling of relief and relaxation in this year’s festival.

Campbell had an illustrious career; he was a Professor of Music at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music for over 30 years. He still performs and gives masterclasses all over the world. 

Cruises and classical tunes 

As artistic director for the festival, Campbell said the multi-week event features great music. 

“We feel music is central to the human experience.”

There will be chamber music, jazz, choirs, orchestras and most uniquely, there are the cruises. Music will be played on the Island Queen, a cruise ship that travels through the famous 30,000 islands.

“This year, we’re calling the cruises a floating folk festival. So if anybody’s interested in folk music and more contemporary music, they will find it on the Island Queen. And if the weather’s good, we try to hit the sunsets when possible.”

Nearly all of the performers this year are Canadian, partly because of the lockdowns and partly because there is no shortage of great Canadian talent, said Campbell.

“For those who love piano music, this is the place to come because we’re focusing on great Canadian pianists this summer.”

And for first-timers looking for a great introduction to classical music, Campbell recommends the all-Chopin recital on July 19 by Canadian Janina Fialkowska, full of familiar music by one of the world’s leading pianists. 

He also recommends The Planets on July 28, a multi-media production showcasing this famous work.

And Sounding Thunder: The Song of Francis Pegahmagabow on July 29. A beautiful Indigenous story with music by west coast composer Tim Corlis and written by Ojibwe poet Armand Garnet Ruffo.

“It’s something that we premiered a couple of years ago and has been really taking off as an example of what should be done for reconciliation.”

COVID-19 and silver linings 

Returning to an in-person festival for the first time in three years, the Festival of the Sound will run for two weeks, a week shorter than pre-pandemic. 

“This year, we’re really excited that we are able to invite and have some of our patrons come back for live concerts,” said Campbell. “And we’re planning on returning to three weeks next year.”

And out of an abundance of caution, Campbell said they’re limiting tickets to 50 per cent capacity this year, with 40 events versus the typical 60-70. 

But, the silver lining of the pandemic is the Festival of the Sound has turned into a year-round festival, combining live concerts and online concerts.

“We are now able to reach out to places and people we hadn’t been able to reach out to before. So we’re excited.”

Campbell said to book early if interested in any of the events. You can buy tickets online or phone in

“When visitors come to the Festival, they can also explore this beautiful corner of Canada.”

Calgary Roller Derby plans to reunite members at first home event in 2 years – Calgary |

Calgary Roller Derby plans to reunite members at first home event in 2 years - Calgary |

Calgary Roller Derby players are hoping to unite the derby community at their first home event in two years.

It’s a sport that leaves players battered and bruised, but that’s all part of the fun according to participants.

“Hitting people is first on my list. It’s an outlet for aggression,” Carla Walquist, AKA Scarla Maim and co-president of Calgary Roller Derby, said of her favourite aspects of the game.

“It’s very rough. It’s very intense. There’s tons of skill involved, tons of rules involved. Agility and speed and endurance.”

Roller derby is back on again in Calgary after COVID-19 shut the sport down for two years.

“I was grateful we got our last scrimmage back in March of 2019, but it was kind of heartbreaking actually, to be honest,” Walquist said.

Members of the Calgary Roller Derby are thrilled to be back at their weekly practices in West Hillhurst.

“Nothing really beats the fitness that we do here and the intensity, the community — all of the stuff you just can’t find in a home gym,” Walquist said.

The sport involves two teams, with one jammer from each team, who can score points by passing opposing team members as many times as possible within two minutes. Blockers stop the opposing jammer by any legal means necessary while helping their jammer get through.

“It was amazing and it was nerve-racking,” said skater Jessica Hafeli, also known on the track as Jigz, about her return to practice.

“I have never not skated this long in my life in 10 years, so there were definitely a lot of nerves mixed with excitement.

“Not sure if I was ready but as soon as I put skates on in the first practice it was like ‘OK, cool, let’s go!’”

Hafeli said she appreciates the sense of community in the Calgary roller derby scene.

“I enjoy the athleticism mixed with the empowerment. I really appreciate that this community is so diverse and very much supports the empowerment of women and the female-identified. It’s not like any other community or sports community that I’ve ever been a part of.”

She added there’s also a lot of strategy involved in the sport.

“The ability to have really good strategies that you’ve practiced and then go into a game and execute it perfectly is the best,” she said of the game. “When you’re working together and you’ve been working so hard at this one play and it comes out beautifully in a game — there’s nothing like it.”

It’s taken some time for skaters to come back and feel comfortable enough to be in close quarters to return to full-contact drills and scrimmages. As a result, the local association isn’t back to full strength just yet and the Calgary derby community is looking to recruit.

“The whole derby community worldwide is suffering. We are suffering for players, for games and events and fans,” Walquist said.

“We are just trying to build that back up and get it out there again so people know we are still at it and just get them excited about derby.

“We just want to get people to come out and see it once and then I think they will be hooked and they will come again.”

Calgary Roller Derby is hosting a double-header women’s invitational on June 11 in Calgary at the Acadia Recreation Complex, called Roller Derby Revival-Smash Hits.

The games will be themed around music genres with punk vs rap and metal vs country. Both participants and audience members are encouraged to dress the part for the team they are playing or cheering for.

Brits take home all the titles at the latest ITF events in Nottingham

Brits take home all the titles at the latest ITF events in Nottingham

“It’s always hard to pick yourself up for the week straight after, but I was happy with my game this week and I was very consistent. I played some of my best tennis in the final,” said Kartal.

“These two wins mean I will break into the top 300. I was around 800 at the start of the year and my goal was to get into the top 500 and I achieved that. Then I wanted top 300 and I’m happy to get there so quickly.

“Hopefully I can get a full grass court season in this year and I’m looking forward to what is ahead in the next few weeks.”

The British success continued in the ITF M25 event, as Billy Harris won the title in his home city with a 6-4, 6-3 win over Israel’s Edan Leshem in the final.

“This is my first M25 title and it was great to do it here,” said 27-year-old Harris. “I was born down the road, so I had lots of friends and family here to watch this and it was great. It is always good to have people on the sidelines giving you a bit of support.”

Hawthorne’s boyhood home to open as community events center

Hawthorne’s boyhood home to open as community events center

RAYMOND — Kicking off with a celebratory open house scheduled for 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 7, the boyhood home of author Nathaniel Hawthorne will be transformed into an events center.

The 40 Hawthorne Road house will be available for activities like meetings, receptions, small weddings, crafts fairs and birthday parties from May through September each year, according to a news release from the Hawthorne Community Association.

The free open house will feature refreshments, hors d’oeuvres, and music by singer-guitarist Gary Wittner from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. The occasion will mark the completion of phase one of the Hawthorne Community Association’s three-year-long effort to raise $75,000 to make urgent structural repairs to the building, referred to as “the Hawthorne House.”

Those funds enabled essential repair of the building’s foundation and other critical elements of its structure, as well as a makeover of the interior into a cozy, welcoming meeting place. Phase 2 of the fundraising campaign will seek to raise an additional $30,000 to cover the costs of a new roof and new siding and painting.

Event rentals at the Hawthorne House will help fund that phase. Rates are $25 per hour for nonprofits and Hawthorne Community Association members, and $50 per hour for nonmembers (minimum of two hours).

Google Home app redesigning events feed to be simpler & better prioritized

Google Home app redesigning events feed to be simpler & better prioritized

After updating the primary tab with interactive device toggles inspired by Android 11, the Google Home app wants to redesign the “Feed” to be more useful.

The Google Home app consists of two main tabs. There’s the “Home View” with a list of all your devices laid out in a grid that Google just updated to allow for quicker actions. Next to it is the “Home Feed” tab that’s meant to show alerts from your smart devices.

These “Priority events” include Home & Away changes and other updates, like the recent one to Speak Group functionality. Underneath that is a “Recent events” section, while a few promotional “Discover” cards round everything out.

Google this month will redesign the Home Feed to “help you better understand what’s happening in and around your home.” 

The update automatically sorts your home’s recent and most important events in an updated clutter free layout. Grouped events will help you understand what happened around the same time instead of scrolling through a list of repetitive events.

There looks to be much less scrolling with a new card design that immediately identifies the type of alert at the left. Each notification includes the name, time, and what room the device originates in. Camera cards are accompanied by images, while each has an overflow menu. Lastly, there’s a “History” shortcut at the top-left of the feed to see everything. 

This should be available in the coming weeks, while version 2.49 with the Home View redesign is not yet widely rolled out for Android via Google Play.
