International Chamber Ensemble
Based in Rome, the International Chamber Ensemble perform orchestral
concerts, chamber music and fully staged opera and operetta. The ensemble's
website at www.webeco.it/interensemble includes an entire calendar
of the ensemble's events.
The prolific composer Carson Kievman has not only written four symphonies,
nine operas, 26 music theatre pieces and various chamber music, but has
also found time to overhaul his website, at which you're invited to hear new
sound files and see new pictures.
The July issue of NewMusicBox (the American Music Center's online magazine)
asks how festivals can attract new audiences to American music. Michael
Torke, Marilyn Nonken, Greg Sandow and Joseph Dalton describe memorable
outdoor musical experiences and unusual exposures to new music. You'll also
find a calendar of 200 performances of new music across America, and details
of 22 new CDs (with a RealAudio sample from each) ... all at www.newmusicbox.org .
Brent Hugh has announced a new mailing list called Audience. Hosted
by the Missouri Western State College Department of Music, Audience is dedicated
to discussions about the future of live classical music performance. The
list's homepage at www.mwsc.edu/~music/audience.html gives instructions on
how to join.
If you're collecting mailing lists, Classical Corner at www.classicalcorner.com have a 'Friendly, No Flame Classical
Music Moderated Discussion List' which you can join from a link on their
site. Classical Corner, incidentally, offer books, CDs, videos and 'essentia'.

cello (BWV 1007-1012) ? You could win this CD by entering July's Quiz
and CD Giveaway at David J. Grossman's J.S. Bach page. Once again, Tjako
van Schie is offering copies of his own CD performance of the Bach Goldberg
Variations to three winners of his website-based competition. If all this
Bach is too much for you, there are 10 copies of Rachmaninov's 3rd piano
concerto to be won on the ClassicalIsCool site. The UK's Philharmonia Orchestra is giving away CDs of their recent
recording of Schumann's 2nd Symphony (one per month) to names drawn at random
from their mailing list. You can win CDs of your own choice in Len Mullenger's new July quiz (by hunting through the Warwick Arts
website to find the answer) and by filling in the survey run by Turkish
Radios Online. Why not enter all the competitions and increase your
