We are excited to announce the launch of Arranging Ellington, a new project in the Jazz Group. Whether you've been composing and arranging jazz for years or are a musician or composer new to the arranging process, we encourage you to join us in exploring the music of Duke Ellington, undoubtedly one of the greatest composers and bandleaders of all time.
We invite you to arrange one of Duke Ellington's classic sacred compositions as part of the Arranging Ellington project:
Composer/arranger Darcy James Argue will be on hand to help guide you through this project. We will be posting updates about the project in the Composing Group, but you will have to join the Jazz Group in order to submit your arrangement.
Composers, you're invited to join the Songwriter Search Online Project, which began this week, and will continue until December 2, in Musical Exchange's Songwriting Group. This songwriting project is open to all young songwriters of all levels and all musical styles. Jump in with Songwriting Activity #1, in which we ask you to introduce yourself as a songwriter and share your inspiration.
We are also excited to introduce the selected songwriters who will be traveling to South Africa through this project. Click here to meet the songwriters!
We will be announcing some of our upcoming projects for the composing community in the next couple of weeks, but in the meantime, we hope you will share and comment on some of the work you made over the summer. Click on the Summer 2013 discussion below and share away. Remember, if you leave some music, comment on some music, too. This is the best way for us to keep our conversation going!
