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.

VANDUZER, The Honourable Mr. Justice John Elston
Nov. 8, 2005 If ever there lived a modern-day chevalier, that man was John Elston VANDUZER. Born October 14, 1927 in Winona, south of Hamilton, John was raised with his brother Dick on the family fruit farm but felt destined to be a city gentleman. After completing his secondary education in Hamilton, John did his B.A. at McMaster University (1950) before attending Osgoode Hall. After articling with Fraser and Beatty, he entered into private practice in Hamilton, but found his real calling when he was appointed to the Family Court, in 1966. John's professional life was a memorable succession of selfless initiatives: he co-founded the Unified Family Court in 1976, was the first Canadian President of the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts, set up the Dawn Patrol Group Home to aid troubled youth, was an Elder and Sunday School Teacher at St. Giles' United Church, served on the Committee for Citizens of Distinction and as President of the Hamilton Community Concert. John was a tireless advocate for families and a leading member of his community. In recognition of this, he was awarded an Honourary Doctorate of Laws by McMaster University in 2003.
Above all, John treasured his family. He was blessed with two wonderful marriages: the first to Betty ANDERSON, whom he met in Latin class at McMaster and married in 1955 and with whom he had three children, Tony (Jodie KARPF,) Peter (Kathy HALLIDAY,) and Sarah (John HELSTON.) After Betty's death in 1984, John entered into a joyous union with Joan WANSBROUGH (née LAWSON) in 1985 and found himself a delighted stepfather to Michael (Liane BEAM,) Connie (Eric LOWY) and Gwyn (Andres DUSSAN.) He was an adored Grandpa to Taylor, Eli, Anders, Mac, Simone, Claire, Melissa, Kaitlin, Diego and Daniela.
A master storyteller, dapper dresser and consummate host, John enjoyed life to the full. With Joan he travelled the world, enjoyed the arts, entertained his wide circle of dear Friends, and reveled in the beauty of their cottage on Peninsula Lake, and their farm at Mansfield.
The best summary of John's life comes from his granddaughter, Simone. When in 2002 John retired from the bench and was feted during his last day in court, in full regalia and with many testimonials to his skills in jurisprudence and mediation, four-year-old Simone looked up at her Uncle Peter and, in an awestruck voice, asked "Is Grandpa a hero?" Yes, Simone, John Elston VANDUZER was a hero.
There will be a Celebration and Tribute to John at the Hamilton Golf and Country Club, 232 Golf Links Road, Ancaster, on Sunday, November 13th, 2005, from 12: 00-3:00 p.m. John would love all his Friends and family to be there.
Donations in lieu of flowers may be made to the John E. VanDuzer Scholarship Fund through the Hamilton Community Foundation, 120 King St. W., Suite 700, Hamilton, L8C 4V2.
