4Friday is a weekly series that I started on my personal website at http://hughsung.com where I share 4 musical things I found interesting in the past week. They can range from songs to podcasts, blogs and books, and other musical sundries. (I must confess, I “borrowed” the idea from Tim Ferriss’ excellent 5-Bullet Friday emails). Enjoy!
Violinist Timothy Judd has been a member of the Richmond Symphony since 2001. He write a wonderful blog exploring works of classical music in depth called “The Listener’s Club”
Chattanooga Symphony & Opera concertmaster Holly Mulcahy writes about the future of classical music at Neo Classical. Check out this excellent article that talks about the urgent need for orchestras to develop a compelling story to connect with audiences in a meaningful way.
Dr. Christopher J. Russell is Director of Choirs at Oltman Middle School in St. Paul Park, Minnesota, a school that went 1:1 iPad in the fall of 2013. If you like your music mixed with technology, his blog Technology in Music Education is an invaluable resource.
Dr. Chris Foley writes one of classical music’s most popular (and enduring) blogs covering the topic of Collaborative Piano. What is Collaborative Piano? Ah, you’ll have to wait until the next episode of “A Musical Life” podcast, where I’ll be featuring Dr. Foley as my guest!
Have a suggestion for the next 4Friday post? Let me know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to hear from you!
