Orchestras aren't playing a particularly important role in the Expo 86 World Festival. The biggest symphonic event, no doubt, will take place next week when Riccardo Muti brings his Philadelphians to Canada. Also on the sparse agenda are the Orchestre Symphonique of Montreal under Charles Dutoit (July) and the State Symphony of the Soviet Union under Evgeny Svetlanov (October). For the time being, however, attention is monopolized by the local band.

In the 17 years since Dame Janet Baker began giving recitals here, little has changed in the British mezzo-soprano's artful communication of a wide range of music. Appreciation of Dame Janet's elegant and unfalteringly musical singing has increased, however, to the point where her announced local performances draw ever larger crowds.
