  1. Thanks so much for including the "Festival of Anthems" in your concert calendar! Especially when Sunday was full of so many choral performances! One thing that sets our concerts apart is that most are part of our affordable "Music For All" series, with ticket prices as low as $5! This makes it possible for many people to attend who might otherwise not be able to.

    I just fell onto your blog and I think it's great! Where do you get your concert calendar from? Do you compile it from several different places or copy and past eit from a website? I'd LOVE to know where you get it. ~a fellow choral conductor.

    I compile it myself every week, from a couple of different sources - the GBCC website, the Boston Singer's Resource, and the Boston Globe calendar section. Glad it's useful! I've been thinking of making some changes to it, actually, b/c it's so much work.
