Patrick CARDY, Composer and Teacher: 1953-2005
Open-minded, all-embracing Ottawa musician was known for bridging gaps in an area of the arts that is often strongly divided. For him, it was all about communicating with his audience
By Randy RAY, Special to The Globe and Mail, Wednesday, May 4, 2005, Page S7
Ottawa -- During a career that saw him receive more than 40 commissions from performers and institutions, including acclaimed Canadian concert pianist Angela Hewitt and Ottawa's National Arts Centre Orchestra, Patrick CARDY rarely separated himself from those who hired him to compose music.
"Patrick dispelled the stereotype of composers as introverted and dour and who do their own thing. He was always enthusiastic to work with us, and about the process of working with us," says Peter DUSCHENES, artistic director for the Platypus Theatre in Ottawa.
In 2001, Mr. CARDY was commissioned by the National Arts Centre Orchestra to co-write music for Rhythm in Your Rubbish, a Platypus Theatre production that told the story of two tramps who discover the beauty of music.
As was usually the case, Mr. CARDY took on the project with great enthusiasm, attending workshops and rehearsals, where he collaborated with actors and the director to make the music and story work well together. "He was a fantastic collaborator who was so willing to jump into the process of creating," says Mr. DUSCHENES.
Others to commission Mr. CARDY include the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, the Ottawa International Chamber Music Festival, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Vancouver Orchestra, the Vancouver Chamber Music Festival and Thirteen Strings. In addition to Ms. HEWITT, he wrote for soprano Julie NESRALLAH, flautists Robert CRAM and Jean-Guy BRAULT, and for the violin/viola duo of Jerry and Janos CSABA, who premiered his Mimesis on the National Arts Centre's Music for a Sunday Afternoon series in 1988.
Often, his support and interest in those who commissioned him did not end once his music was put to paper: When Rhythm in Your Rubbish toured Ontario, Mr. CARDY attended performances in many cities, including Kitchener, and Toronto, where the Toronto Symphony performed his score. He would often have a beer with musicians after a performance to ask how they enjoyed playing his music and to determine if revisions were necessary. Anyone who is familiar with his compositions says his music is characterized by colourful, evocative sonorities, a strong sense of dramatic gesture, an elegant lyricism and an accessible directness of expression -- traits that have captivated both listeners and performers.
Mr. CARDY's work ranged from pieces for children's theatre to liturgical music. He was just as likely to be inspired by the music of a Renaissance composer, as he was to experiment with synthetic musical scales. A Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Records disc of his work Virelai, for clarinet and string orchestra, was nominated for a Juno award in the Best Classical Composition category in 1992, and another Canadian Broadcasting Corporation disc including his Éclat for Organ, was named Best Classical Recording at the 1999 East Coast Music Awards.
Mr. CARDY, who was also a flutist and teacher, was in demand as a guest lecturer and music adjudicator Canadawide, and often visited area high schools to encourage students to consider music as a career. In 1977, he became a professor in music composition and theory at Carleton University's School for Studies in Art and Culture, where he was known as an attentive and creative teacher.
Mr. CARDY was president of the Canadian League of Composers from 1989 to 1993, and was on the Canadian League of Composers's executive council for many years, during which he was "well spoken on issues of concern to Canadian composers and very generous with his time and advice," says Canadian League of Composers president John BURGE of Toronto.
While president, he used his close proximity to the Canada Council's Ottawa office to work on a number of items, including trying to increase the amount of Canadian music performed by Canadian orchestras, says Mr. BURGE. He also oversaw the highly successful 40th-anniversary celebrations of the Canadian League of Composers in Winnipeg in 1991.
"He cared deeply about our country and wanted us all to appreciate the wealth of our musical heritage and to provide opportunities for current and future composers," says Mr. BURGE.
On March 11, the Ottawa Chamber Music Society performed a tribute concert to Mr. CARDY's work at a local church. The concert was recorded by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to be broadcast later across Canada. "It was a beautiful event," says the society's artistic director, Julian ARMOUR, noting that the society on 29 different occasions used the composer's work in its performances. The March concert included pieces written for his two children. It began with CARDY's Hope, a short, sweet piece for strings dedicated to son Michael, and also included Quips and Cranks dedicated to son Jonathan.
"He wrote music to be played and listened to," says Mr. ARMOUR. "He loved the reaction of audiences and that his music brought out strong emotions."
With his open-minded approach, Mr. CARDY, who was a devout Catholic, was known to bridge gaps in an industry that is often strongly divided. "These days there is an extremely wide spectrum of music and few composers have respect for the whole spectrum, but Patrick brought people together and he always fostered respect for what others were doing.
"He was a great, positive and healthy force in the Canadian music industry."
When he was not composing, Mr. CARDY loved to play sports and keep fit, says close friend Al MacKEY, who had known Mr. CARDY and his wife, Janet, for 20 years.
"He was a passionate debater who liked to take opposing views and provoke his Friends on just about any subject," says Mr. MacKEY, who remembers his friend as an enthusiastic curler and softball player, and a huge hockey fan who never missed his son Jonathan's games and practices.
In 1996, Mr. CARDY served as music adviser to the National Arts Centre Orchestra for its new music festival, A Tonal Departure, and more recently was a consultant on the National Arts Centre New Music Program. Over the years, he wrote a handful of pieces of chamber music for both the orchestra and its musicians and was active in suggesting new music the orchestra should add to its concert series.
"One of his roles was to serve as the voice of conscience for the National Arts Centre Orchestra in our new music program," says Christopher DEACON, the orchestra's managing director. "He gave us guidance; there was ongoing dialogue and if he felt we were not doing enough, he would nip at our heels."
Andrew CARDY was a patient collaborator, says Mr. DEACON. "He would not just say 'here is a proposal,' he would give me a very elaborate range of options. They were always very thoughtful options and he was very responsive to what we had to say."
Like the 18th-century composer Joseph Haydn, Mr. CARDY signed all his compositions with the Latin Deo gratias -- thanks be to God.
Patrick CARDY was born August 22, 1953, in Toronto. He died of a heart attack March 24 in Ottawa, after being treated for a broken arm suffered while curling. He was 51. He is survived by his wife, Janet, and two sons, Michael, 7, and Jonathan, 11. On the night he died, the National Arts Centre Orchestra dedicated its performance to him.

I Remember -- Patrick CARDY
By Mary BULLOCK, Wednesday, June 8, 2005, Page S9
Ottawa -- Mary BULLOCK of Ottawa writes about Patrick CARDY, whose obituary appeared on May 4.
In 1997, my husband, David and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary and I wanted to give him an anniversary present that was unusual and would commemorate our mutual love of music. I also wanted it to be a surprise. I approached Julian ARMOUR, the artistic director of the Ottawa International Chamber Music Festival who arranged for me to commission a piece of music from Patrick CARDY. I donated a sum to the festival and, in turn, Patrick CARDY received his remuneration for the commission. The work was based on Toad of Toad Hall, the children's classic by Kenneth Grahame, and was about Toad and his love of cars -- I always considered my husband a latter-day Toad. Patrick CARDY was a joy in his complete commitment to this work and to keeping it a secret. It was performed in one of the concerts devoted to Canadian music. It was introduced by Patrick CARDY and, to my husband's complete astonishment, by myself. On March 11, it was performed again at the special concert of the composer's music. It is indicative of the warmth of his personality that he and his family became our Friends. I am overjoyed that there is to be a concert in his memory at this year's festival, which runs from July 23 to August 6.

ARMOUR, John Victor, C.A.
It is with mixed feelings that our family announces the passing of John Victor ARMOUR on Saturday, December 3, 2005. We feel sorrow at the loss of a beloved husband, father and grandfather, but also relief for the end of his valiant struggle. Left to mourn him are his loving wife of 58 years, Joyce, his daughters Joanne (David) HOWE, and Vicki (Graham) PARKER, and his five grandchildren, Jennifer, Christopher and Samantha HOWE, and Megan and David PARKER. Victor will also be missed by his special sister-in-law, Robin BARNES. It is difficult to encapsulate the life of any man, but Victor would especially wish to be remembered for his Welsh heritage. He was born on January 1, 1917, in Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales and emigrated to Canada in 1926. He was a proud Canadian, but he maintained his love of Wales throughout his life. And like many Welshmen, Victor was blessed with a magical singing voice which was showcased when he was one of the original Choir boys at All Saints Anglican Church in Hamilton. Victor was also proud of his service in the Second World War. Achieving the rank of Captain, Victor was responsible for the transport of war brides back to Canada and was awarded several medals. Even near the end of his life, when most memories had faded, Victor could easily and flawlessly recite his army rank and serial number. Finally, Victor would like to be remembered for his achievements in the business world. He worked tirelessly through correspondence courses to become a chartered accountant and he became secretary-treasurer of one of the largest car dealerships in Canada, Elgin Motors in Toronto. While there, Victor revolutionized and instituted an accounting system which later became the standard for other dealerships in Ontario. On a more personal note, the family would like Victor to be remembered as the caring, decent man that he was. Although brutally honest and tactless to a fault, Victor epitomized the honour and grace of a gentler world. His generosity of spirit, caring of all living things and devotion to his family were unsurpassed. We would like to thank him and may God bless him. We say goodbye to our dear Victor, our Dad and our Grandpa. We love you and may you rest in peace. The family would be happy to receive visitors at Smith's Funeral Home, 485 Brant Street (one block north of City Hall), Burlington (905-632-3333) on Monday, December 5th from 3-5 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. A Service celebrating Vic's Life will be held in the Chapel of the Funeral Home on Tuesday, December 6, 2005 at 10: 30 a.m. Please join us for a reception which will follow in the same facility. If so desired, the family would sincerely appreciate expressions of sympathy, in Victor's name, to a charity of your choice. www.smiths.fh.com
