5 Ways You Can Help Launch a Nationwide Calendar for Classical and Contemporary Music
All right, friends and not-yet-friends. This is a call for help. The Live Music Project is taking a HUGE step forward this fall (nationwide concert calendar!), and to make that happen, I need help. Here’s what it’ll take:
Have a handful of friends over for an afternoon and help submit events for ensembles who don’t have the resources to do it themselves. I’ll provide the list. I might provide bagels & coffee. It’s satisfying, it’s relaxing, it’s fun, and it’s immediately valuable to the community. You can do this anywhere in the world. Requirements: Computer with internet access. Fingers to type with. Maybe a smile. Details here.
Will your community benefit from having a comprehensive, egalitarian community calendar for classical and contemporary music? Yes? Good. Tell your friends it’s coming. Invite them to sign up for our mailing list so we can tell them when the calendar is ready. Share this post. Requirements: Enthusiasm. And this link to our mailing list: http://eepurl.com/XpRIf. Heck, you can subscribe, too!
Python. Django. Github. Angular. Mandrill. Do you write code and love music? This project is a two-fer. Requirements: 5 hrs/week and one or more of the above languages/services, or the ability to learn them really quick. Details here.
4. FINANCIAL SUPPORT & SPONSORSHIPS
I am on a mission to connect people with live classical and contemporary music in a way that strengthens community, celebrates listener preferences, and makes the most of local arts resources. This is a powerful mission. Know what can’t happen without money? This mission. If you support it, please make a donation here: donate.livemusicproject.org.

I’ve been known to get creative. Very creative.
