WELCOME BACK!

WE HOPE YOU HAD A GREAT SUMMER!

We know the summer was likely not a “normal” summer for most but we hope you found moments of joy and relaxation, nonetheless! As we come back to classes (both on-line and in-person), World Projects would like to express our wishes for continued good health and safety for our hard-working and inspiring teachers as well as their students and community.

World Projects salutes the music educators, conductors, and directors! Never has music education been more important in all of our lives (children and adults). Nothing provides the emotional release, inspiration, dedication, and discipline that making music inspires. Whether music classes/ensembles have to take place in the less than ideal virtual environment, in smaller modified in-person settings (see our exciting note on our Chamber Music Initiative), or if you are able to come together in full rehearsal settings, we know your musicians will benefit during these difficult times just by being together!

World Projects wishes you strength to continue to advocate to your administration, leaders, and communities how crucial a role music plays in all our lives. We will be here and are excited to play a role in your future musical adventures once it is safe to do so!


DESTINATIONS CLOSER TO HOME!

While there is still uncertainty as we move into the fall, there WILL come a time when we are able to come together to make music and travel once again. Many groups are eager to travel in 2021 and 2022, but due to the circumstances have considered touring closer to home. Why fly when you can drive! There are many wonderful music/performance, cultural, and exchange opportunities throughout the USA!

For those on the West Coast, Los Angeles/San Diego, San Francisco, Portland/Seattle, or Las Vegas/Grand Canyon/Phoenix would be excellent driving options. For groups in the Midwest (and South), Austin, Nashville or Chicago offer wonderful opportunities and activities. For our friends on the East Coast, Boston, Philadelphia, or Charleston/Savannah may be the perfect destination.

Should any of these locations (or another not listed) pique your interest, please contact us at: info@world-projects.com to get started on your next music travel adventure!

 

CHAMBER MUSIC INITIATIVE
We recently introduced our Chamber Music Initiative, where you will be able to commission new music specific to your various chamber ensembles from one of our composers and collaborate with them towards a virtual premiere.

If you are interested in being a part of this initiative, please contact us at info@world-projects.com for more information.

We also have new Chamber music available from Brad Hart, Jinjun Lee, Alec Schumacker, Mo Zhao, and Brett Abigaña on our website. Check them out!

In addition to Dr. John Volckens, Dr. Shelly Miller from CU-Boulder and Dr. Donald Milton from the University of Maryland will be on the panel as well to collectively present the collaborative work and combined preliminary results from the three major aerosol in the arts studies currently underway in the U.S.
