Classical Notes: September 21, 2008 Archive

How hard is it to update a website, anyway?

Posted at 5:14 PM on September 21, 2008 by Gillian Martin (3 Comments)

Please allow me an "Andy Rooney" moment.

As a classical music announcer, I spend a lot of time searching the Web for current information about musicians to share with you, the listener.

What I find a little irritating is that many big-name classical stars--those who probably have "people" to handle these things--don't keep their websites updated. A household-name pianist's calendar claims, "No tour dates are currently scheduled, please check back soon." Oh, really? Or a major violinist's website reads, "In the 2006-2007 season, he will be touring Asia."

So, if you're a big name star reading this blog, help me help you. Update your website, so I can sound "with it" and well-informed, and listeners can know you're still alive and working.
