This week: Oundjian extends his TSO contract, SPCO to vote by mail, and the Junos go to... Here are stories we're following in the news and on the web. 
  • The Juno Awards were held last Sunday in Regina, and classical winners included Amici ensemble, James Ehnes, Karina Gauvin, and composer Vivan Fung. The Toronto Star has a recap, and the Juno website lists all the winners and nominees. 
  • Toronto Symphony music director Peter Oundjian will stay on through the 2016/17 season, the Toronto Star reports. Oundjian, who is the TSO's 10th music director, will become its longest-serving one, surpassing Sir Andrew Davis.
  • Vancouver Symphony principal timpanist Aaron McDonald took a star turn last weekend as part of the VSO's Rituals new music series. The Straight posted a review of the concert, which also featured a work by VSO resident composer Edward Top.
