We would love to share your classical music experiences with our ever-growing audience. (Over the past year, we’ve had over one million pageviews from readers all around the world.) Have you:

  • heard an intimate church concert or glamorous grand opera lately that you want to write about?
  • enjoyed an especially meaningful encounter with classical music?
  • wanted to discuss what studying or enjoying classical music means to you personally?

If so, we want to hear from you. Email us your submission in less than 500 words, with your name, where you are from, and any pictures you take.

Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to read our coverage of the classical music world.
