It's all online ...

Sisse Schilling wrote to tell us about the DVM -- the Danish Online Research Music Library, which is a project under DEF, the Danish Electronic Research Library. It aims to present quality resources for researchers and musicians, also catering for a general interest in music. Currently, the library is only in Danish, but, for example, if you look at the resources named lydfiler, you'll have access to sound recordings of Danish jazz and Danish art song.


John Robert-Blunn's site represents the Manchester Charivari. Its Passing Notes page carries full listings, regularly updated, of arts events, mainly musical, in Manchester and the north west of England, and also carries extracts from the Charivari, a print magazine founded in 1956.


The Phillipines-based Manila Vocal Ensemble claim that 'you can hear from this fantastic and formidable small choir a vocal texture that could not be heard from even the bigger choirs.' Amongst the aims of this small group are to promote the songs and dances of Filipino culture, and their repertoire includes tribal dances performed using authentic costumes and instruments.


LondonNet Classical is Helenka Bednar's online guide to classical music and events in London UK. Part of LondonNet -- a more general events site, it has the look of a page generated automatically, or at least made to a fixed style, but combined with some interesting links to classical events and news.


Organ Focus is an international and searchable listing of organ concerts -- anywhere, any time, set up by professional computer programmer and amateur organ enthusiast Selan Tav.


Walter O Tejeda, conductor at the Arcos de Buenos Aires Tango Show, wrote to tell us about an organisation that he thinks is unique -- a string chamber orchestra combined with a ballet exhibiting many different kinds of Argentine dances and dresses. The two-hour show has light and sound effects and covers tango from it's beginnings, right through to composers such as Astor Piazzolla, and featuring themes such as El dia que me quieras, El choclo and Verano Porteo.
