And you’re in a position not only to share it with your fellow musicians, but also to perform it for the audiences who look to you for just this sort of inspiration. Now imagine that you can't share it after all. Why? Because it would cost you more to program that music than your small regional or university orchestra could possibly afford.</p><p></p> Mon, 30 Jun 2014 23:44:32 +0000 Gigi Yellen 48313 at http://nwpr.org Yakima Symphony's Director Could Change Copyright Law Finding a Voice: Choral Singing Groups for Seattle-Area Kids http://nwpr.org/post/finding-voice-choral-singing-groups-seattle-area-kids <p style="border-color: rgb(179, 179, 140); color: rgb(76, 51, 39); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">Republished from<a href="http://www.parentmap.com/article/choral-singing-groups-for-kids"> ParentMap</a>.</p><p style="border-color: rgb(179, 179, 140); color: rgb(76, 51, 39); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">&nbsp;</p> Mon, 16 Dec 2013 20:04:10 +0000 Gigi Yellen 38791 at http://nwpr.org Finding a Voice: Choral Singing Groups for Seattle-Area Kids What Do Salmon Ladders and Opera Have in Common?
