- Unquiet Thoughts, the new blog of Alex Ross located on the New Yorker site. It seems that the granddaddy of classical music blogs, The Rest is Noise, has run its course, but will still remain intact for readers to peruse its archives. Best of luck to Alex with this new venture.
- The National Conference on Keyboard Pedagogy blog, curated by Linda Christensen. This is more a music education blog than a classical music one, with lots of links and videos that showcase the cutting edge of piano pedagogy.
- Canadian Opera, a blog on all things operatic and Canadian by the fabulous bass Gerrit Theule, who will soon be moving to Winnipeg. If you want to keep up with the healthy and growing Canadian opera scene, Gerrit's blog is the place to do it.
For a list of the classical music blog heavy hitters, check out Invesp's ultimate ranking, in which the Collaborative Piano Blog figures prominently.
Of course, this list wouldn't be complete without a non-music blog of note. One fascinating blog that came to my attention only last week is Vivian Maier - Her Discovered Work, featuring recently discovered photos of mid-century Chicago from a previously unknown street photographer.
