Composers Forum is a daily web log that allows invited contemporary composers to share their thoughts and ideas on any topic that interests them--from the ethereal, like how new music gets created, music history, theory, performance, other composers, alive or dead, to the mundane, like getting works played and recorded and the joys of teaching. If you're a professional composer and would like to participate, send us an e-mail.
I thought I’d check out one of the orchestra websites at random. I picked the New Mexico Symphony Orchestra. Its URL is www.nmso.org, but I didn’t know that, so I just typed in www.newmexicosymphony.org and found this:
I bet you were assuming you'd end up at the website for the The New Mexico Symphony. Unfortunately, that organization does not own this URL. Nevertheless, while you're here please take the time to learn more about orchestra management and the administrators engaged in those activities (one of which is to purchase the URL's which contain the orchestra's name!). My name is Drew McManus, I'm the author of 'Adaptistration', a weblog about orchestra management. I'm also an orchestra consultant and a classical musician....
If you're interested in purchasing this URL then you're in luck because it's for sale. there are no restrictions on who may purchase this, meaning, you don't have to be the orchestra in question to own this URL. you can be: a board member an administrator (disgruntled or not) a musician (disgruntled or not) a union representative a volunteer a patron just someone looking for an investment opportunity posted by Corey Dargel
