Composers making major push to publicize their own works
Date: April 16, 2011
I am in deep admiration of composers who are working hard to publicize their works to the community of conductors.
Donald Patriquin started his own website a couple of years ago - I publicized it here. More recently, he's come out with a major new work timed to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the Titanic's sinking. (April 15, 2012) I got an email about the release and I noticed the YouTube video that accompanies the promotion.
There are many difficulties when you publish your own work and publicity is one of them.
While we can't promote all releases of all new works here at ChoralNet, we can recognize innovation in promotion! I like what Patriquin has done - I think other composers will follow in his footsteps (if they haven't already).
