The Ultimate Guide to the MTNA International Day of Collaborative Music

Saturday, January 22, 2011 is the International Day of Collaborative Music, a massive one-day initiative dedicated to the art of making music with others. The Collaborative Piano Blog is one of the official partners of the MTNA Year of Collaborative Music, and my project for the IDCM was the creation of The Tapestry Songbook, a one-day workshop for singers and pianists interested in working in the field of new opera at Tapestry New Opera, culminating in a recital at the end of the day as part of Tapestry's studio series in Toronto.

But there's a whole lot of stuff happening Saturday all across North America, and here are some of the highlights I was able to track down:

Best of luck to everybody involved in the International Day of Collaborative Music, whether coordinating, curating, performing, workshopping, rehearsing, lecturing, volunteering or merely enjoying the awesome performances!

If you have information on or anecdotes from any other IDCM events, official or unofficial, please leave a comment.

    It was great to have your endorsement yesterday morning as everything got under way across the continent! We had a wonderful class for singer-pianist teams with Margo Garrett on Saturday (the official day!) as part of our Piano Plus Weekend line-up, and its concert sequel today featuring Margo with faculty and alums, was a memorable event too. Our collaborative program at UNCSA is almost 10 years old and my first grad (Amélie Langlois, a fellow Canadian) was among those who took part, performing with her duet partner Catherine Donkin. I hope everyone has had as fine a time this weekend as we have had down here in North Carolina!
