Today we launch New York Classical Review, a website that will cover the city with the most robust and remarkable music scene in the country.
While we have selectively reviewed New York events in the past on our national site, The Classical Review, all local coverage will now originate on NYCR (with events of broader national interest also finding their way onto The Classical Review).
New York Classical Review will cover the classical beat with the same candor, independence and smart, lively writing that have featured on our other regional sites in Boston, Chicago and South Florida. Major organizations and presenters like the Metropolitan Opera, New York Philharmonic, and Carnegie Hall will be reviewed, of course, but we will also seek out the offbeat and the unusual, with an emphasis on American music and contemporary and rarely heard repertory. Reviews will be posted in a timely manner, usually before noon the next day.
New Yorkers are not shy about voicing their opinions and we encourage lively debate and welcome comments, conversation and suggestions about NYCR articles and reviews. Organizations that would like to be considered for coverage can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I can’t respond to every email but will be in touch if we will be out to review.
New York Classical Review is in large part dependent upon advertising support. We welcome advertising from music organizations as well as businesses, schools, foundations, private entities or individuals who appreciate the work that we do. Those interested in inquiring about advertising opportunities can send an email to email@example.com.
We hope you will bookmark New York Classical Review, “like” NYCR on Facebook, and make our website a part of your daily reading.
