Had a great interview/conversation with Ted Shaw of The Windsor Star yesterday. By the time we were about ten minutes in he had me waxing nostalgic and missing Windsor. This is the time of year Windsor buzzes with energy. Ted told me Art in The Park is this weekend (I’m not going to miss that!), there is a new music festival (Beaverfest) going on and across the river the Grand Prix is going to be heating up the Detroit Streets. He also shared that the Windsor Symphony has done very well and has attracted candidates for its vacant music director position from all over the world! I was happy to hear that Ted’s daughter has chosen to study music at McGill (viola). Throughout the conversation I was struck by something – that Windsor warmth. I know it sounds corny but there is a real hospitality in so many Windsorites. I finished the call with a big smile on my face and a growing excitement for the show this coming Saturday.
Who says you can’t go home again? Windsor, here I come!!!!
