MUSIC, Major Group

MUSIC focuses on 6 genres of music (Gypsy Jazz, Romane Gila, Balkan Brass, Pop, Flamenco and Classical music).
 
 
Proposed Projects:
 
  a.. Promote concerts
  b.. Promote didactic performances on the roots of classical compositions
  c.. Underlines the global contribution to music (classical, Hot Clubs de Jazz, Flamenco, modern, etc.)
  d.. Provide venues to highlight: distinguishing characteristics of Roma music and musicians (e.g. different styles, role of improvisation)
 
More coordinators are needed. We look for experts on modern, classical, traditional and Jazz music!

your proposed item a can be solved with a calendar that can use input from Google calendar. I did so for my Foundation: www.hcdf.nl tab agenda, where I linked all invitations in gypsyjazz and extended to me personnally in one place. Even made it available to the public. That way the organiser puts up a calendar item, is responsible for the info and those wanting to go somewhere can check it and do exactley that. Take a peek . . .

Perfectly that there is a place where gypsy musicians can go round.Of course we have different approaches to music.It is very well.But we have the same blood,and gypsy energy.
