All this month, radio program Performance Today (heard weekdays on WV Public Radio, 9-11am) is celebrating Chopin’s 200th birthday, and you are invited to
be part of the celebration.
yourself, your friends and family, or your group's version of a copyright-free
or public-domain Chopin piece. Then share your audio or video with Performance Today for others to see and hear on their Web site (you can check out the ones that have already been posted, by a music student and a choir accompanist).
Do you have some old Chopin
music sitting in the piano bench that you’ve been meaning to dust off one of
these days? Now is the time!
Music students, church
pianists, choir accompanists, piano teachers, amateurs and professionals, young
and old, here is your chance to join together with others around the world who
love Chopin’s music.
I’d really like to see and
hear some West Virginians represented in this Chopin celebration. If you submit a video to them, be sure to let
me know (in the comments or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org)
I wonder if they’ll take
submissions of arrangements. Are there any brass quintets, string quartets, or
even rock bands out there playing new versions of Chopin?
Find more details, including technical information, at My Performance Today.
Even if you don't play music by Chopin, I'd love to also hear your Chopin stories -- favorite pieces, memories of listening, or what you like (or don't) about his music. Leave a comment below!
