For several years CAPT has organized the annual Group of Seven and Glenn Gould Train Event. Participants take the passenger train to Hawk Junction and are shuttled to Wawa where they are led by musicologist Dale Innes on a tour of the places iconic Canadian pianist Glenn Gould used to visit on his summer vacation. Dale Innes has written a book about Gould that many CAPT supporters will find very informative. Here is an invitation to the book launch. Please pass the word around.

About the book:
Glenn Gould's legacy continues to intrigue us; new areas of research emerge every year. In this study, Dale Innes explores the evolution of Glenn Gould's interpretation of the keyboard music of J.S. Bach, with particular emphasis on the contrast between his youthful 1955 recording of the Goldberg Variations and his final 1981 recording of the same work. More information on the book >>
