Music director reached highest echelons
In a life steeped in music and dance, he juggled opera, ballet and a host of languages
By Lisa FITTERMAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S8
George CRUM had thick, expressive eyebrows that stood him in good stead for his beloved jokes and stories. Up and down they moved, punctuation to the punch lines that helped him dispel tension before and after performances by the National Ballet of Canada, where he served as founding music director and conductor for 33 years.
Once, Mr. CRUM was forced to use only his eyebrows to cue performers on stage as to when the music would start, stop, slow to a stately adagio or rise to a peak. It was a matinee performance of Giselle in a tiny hall in Fredericton, with principal dancer Karen Kain performing the title role.
"I'll never forget it," Ms. Kain said. "Usually, we followed the movement of George's baton, up, down, swoosh, but this time, all we could see was the top half of his head sticking up through a hole in the stage."
His life was steeped in dance and music, and he believed that they should be accessible to everyone, even in tiny town halls. Tall, with dark hair and a pugilist's nose (he was a Golden Gloves boxer in his teens), he was an inveterate prankster with a sunny nature and a disarming manner. Nothing got him down - not holes drilled through stages, not having to travel on tour along bumpy roads in a bus and certainly not getting caught in a rainstorm on the way to the National Ballet's first performance at Toronto's Eaton Auditorium in 1951, with him as conductor.
As Mr. CRUM often told the story, the rain was coming down so hard that the car sputtered, then shorted out - not what he wanted on one of the biggest nights of his professional life. But there he was, cheerfully hitchhiking with his trousers rolled up to his knees in a futile bid to keep them dry. "And wouldn't you know it, but the elegantly dressed couple who stopped to help were also on their way to the ballet. They said they'd take us, but that we'd probably be late," he said with a wicked grin. "I said, 'Don't worry. I can guarantee that you won't be late.'"
An avid linguist - he spoke fluent German, French, Spanish and Latin, in addition to English - Mr. CRUM fit into any situation, or made it fit him. Jean Verch, a flutist who joined the ballet company in 1963, said that during a Mexican tour, several of them hired a car for the day in the capital. "George was sitting in front and speaking Spanish with the driver, then turning around to translate for us. And the driver asked him where he'd learned to speak English!"
He also tried to impart his love of food on others, insisting that people try things they didn't like three times a year until they developed a taste for it. "I did," laughed Ms. Verch, now the orchestra's administrator. "But despite all of George's gargantuan efforts, I still don't like large snails and boiled parsnips."
George CRUM was born in Rhode Island, the son of George Sr., who worked in the insurance business, and Muriel, an unconventional housewife whom Ms. Verch described as a "grand dame." When her son was grown and travelling on tour, Mrs. CRUM had a habit of turning up in the strangest places. In Podunk, Iowa, he was startled to feel a tap on his shoulder as he walked amid applause to his spot in the orchestra pit. He turned to see his mother, who admonished him: "Georgie, did you wear your rubbers today? It's raining!"
Another time, he was checking into a Quebec City hotel when the desk clerk remarked, 'Oh, Mr. CRUM, your wife is already here and I've taken the liberty of giving you adjoining rooms." Mr. CRUM, who knew that his wife was most definitely not travelling with him, found the connecting door open, and there was his mother, acting as if her visit had been planned for ages.
The CRUM family moved to Toronto when George was 3. He showed an early aptitude for music, and at 12, began to seriously study piano and organ under Edmund COHU, organist and choirmaster of Trinity College School in Port Hope, Ontario After Trinity, he continued to study piano with instructor Mona BATES, making his Toronto debut at the age of 16. Soon, he was a regular recitalist on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio.
He studied musical orchestration under Barbara Pentland and late Ettore Mazzoleni, becoming so fascinated and inspired by opera and lieder music that he would later spend time in Europe working to further his knowledge. One of his hosts, a German music professor, spoke no English while Mr. CRUM spoke only rudimentary German at the time. They communicated in Latin, the only language they had in common.
When he was 22, Mr. CRUM made his professional debut as one of the conductors for the Royal Conservatory Opera, later known as the Canadian Opera Company. Besides conducting, he served as the first chorus master. During this period, he also spent two seasons in Guatemala as an assistant conductor of the National Opera of Central America.
In 1951, two things happened that would change his life: He married Patricia SNELL, a soprano with whom he later had two daughters, and he was approached by Celia FRANCA, the English-born founder of the National Ballet (obituary February 20, 2007). She asked whether he'd join the fledgling company as its music director and conductor and he agreed, setting in motion a professional relationship that would guide the troupe into the highest echelons of the dance world.
For a number of years, he juggled his opera and ballet careers, and even found time to guest conduct for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation opera telecasts and opera and symphony performances across North America, Japan and Europe. Eventually, though, the heavy performance schedule took its toll: He gave up his commitment to the Conservatory Opera to devote himself to what was quickly becoming a tour de force in the world of international dance.
Over the years, he provided the orchestrations and arrangements for works in the ballet company's repertoire including Pas de Deux Romantique (1959-1960), Princess Aurora (1960-1961), One in Five (1961-1962), Melodie (1966-1967), Giselle (1969-1970), Les Sylphides (1973-1974) and Offenbach in the Underworld (1975-1976). But he still took on guest conducting jobs, including an appearance in Mexico for the inauguration of president Miguel de la Madrid and the official opening in 1969 of the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, where an electrical glitch during the second night's performance of Romeo and Juliet caused a third of the orchestra to rise above the stage just as Ms. FRANCA, in the role of Lady Capulet, was commanding Lord Capulet to his knees.
Veronica Tennant, who was dancing the role of Juliet that night, described the scene for The Globe and Mail in 2004: "Gamely, [George] continued waving his baton, ascending until he and his nucleus of musicians were peering down at us aghast - as he said, "the only time I ever looked down on Celia FRANCA."
In 1972, Mr. CRUM received the Celia Award in recognition of his services to ballet in Canada. He officially retired from the ballet in 1984 but was named music director emeritus and appeared as guest conductor at 25th anniversary gala performances and in 1989 for Ms. Tennant's farewell performance of Sergei Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet.
Even in retirement, Mr. CRUM didn't remain still. He bought a snooker parlour in Thornhill, Ontario, and became an avid clockmaker and wood carver, winning a contest for a carving of a toad - a gift for one of his daughters, who collected such amphibious paraphernalia.
"He was always creative and a mentor. He is one of the pioneers who created our company. He was on the bus all day, performing at night, going across the Prairies, travelling in freezing temperatures and in sweltering heat," Ms. Kain said. "In effect, we're standing on his shoulders."
George CRUM was born October 26, 1926, in Rhode Island. He died in Toronto on September 8, 2007, of cancer-related causes. He was 80. He leaves wife Patricia, daughters Jennie and Angie, and seven grandchildren.
