Not content to get my fill of classical music on the radio, in concerts, and through the Cliburn competition webcast, I’ve been checking out My Performance Today.
It’s been a few weeks since Performance Today started accepting submissions from undiscovered and amateur musicians to My Performance Today. They have a good variety of videos posted, but I noticed something very important lacking.
As I searched for entries from West Virginians, the only “WV” I’ve found is where pieces by Bach are labeled with their BWV number.
Is there someone out there who will represent West Virginia?
Undiscovered artists, amateurs, students – here’s your chance to be heard, promoted online, and maybe even get featured nationally on the radio on Performance Today.
And hey, if you’re not a musician, but you know one … tell them about this opportunity. Maybe your church has a choir, or your friend plays in a community band, or your mom’s a good piano player. Even if your closest connection to a musician is your neighbor’s cousin’s sister’s kid who studies trumpet at college, spread the word and we’ll show off some of the talented musicians we have in our state.
Then if you or someone you know enters -- let me know! I’ll try to remember to keep checking, but it’s always good to hear from you.
