Welcome to rec.music.classical.performing! This is a fortnightly posting aimed at introducing new readers to rec.music.classical.performing. Other periodical postings include a monthly FAQ (frequently-asked questions list). [Readers not familiar with Usenet and newsgroups would be well advised to read articles in news.announce.newusers before proceeding any further.] Rec.music.classical.performing is an unmoderated newsgroup for the discussion of issues relevant to performers of classical music. There are several other classical music newsgroups, each with its own specific remit. For a guide to these, you may wish to refer to the periodical posting `Which Classical Music Newsgroup? (FAQ)', which can also be found on the World-Wide Web at: http://www.cis.ohio-state.edu/hypertext/faq/usenet/... ...music/classical/newsgroups/faq.html (The URL should obviously be on one line, without the ellipses.) The newsgroup rec.music.classical.performing was formed to fill a perceived gap in the existing music newsgroup hierarchy. The following is an adaptation of the charter for formation of the newsgroup: The group serves for discussion of issues relating to the performing of classical music (which for present purposes can be taken to include early music etc.). The newsgroup is appropriate for discussion of: instrumental and vocal technique, at both elementary and advanced levels; ensemble playing/singing; conducting; musical interpretation; instrument maintenance; ear-training; sight-reading; tuning and intonation; historical performance; etc. I'd like to encourage you to read the newsgroup for a while and, if you like what you see, to contribute anything you think might be of interest to your fellow classical musicians.
