Perhaps not the world, perhaps not saving anything at all really, but a cape and tiara would go a long way toward outfitting me for my new gig. An event facilitator needs to demonstrate a certain style, don't you think?
But regardless of whether I end up wearing my ermine stole or my mom jeans to work, I am thrilled to be joining the Cantos Music Foundation.
How could I not be? I am in love with the vision. The vision of a National Music Centre, amplifying the love. The vision of magnificent architecture which will celebrate Canadian music, a convergence of the old home of the blues and the new buzz of the East Village.
I had my training yesterday, met many cheery like-minded folks, and got a glance at the incredible instrument collection. How I long to play that Theremin. Later this week, I will work my first shift. Still debating the cape and tiara.
In linkety-link news, I have some new posts floating around town:
- coverage of the King Eddy campaign launch (complete with photos) at Music Matters
- partial contribution to an article about the Telus Spark/Mayor's Urban Design Awards appearing on EV Experience. It's a marriage of my scribbling and my editor's sassy style. She has a knack for swooping in and making everything infinitely more awesome. Even if if does mean dropping my Uranus joke.
