[From the Director] Help Me Obliterate Barriers to Classical Music

About 5 years ago, I started working on a data idea, the Live Music Project, aggregating classical concert listings in Seattle. I fell in love with this community and the collaborative work that is music-making, from the first moments of “Will you write a piece for these instruments?” to hearing that music come to life on stage, and all the  rehearsal magic in between.

(In one of my favorite rehearsal moments, the clever, sweet-toothed students of the Seattle Collaborative Orchestra solved a syncopation challenge by singing a tricky segment of an orchestral piece to the words “Where’s my candy corn” as they perused the snack table around Halloween time.)

I’m proud of what LMP has become. With the help of hundreds of contributors – volunteers, community partners, donors, board members, friends, artists, arts administrators, coffee makers, idea-bouncer-offers – LMP has listed 8,000 concerts, distributed $60,000 in free concert tickets to local communities, and launched a fundraising tool to the public. We’re hiring our first staff. We’re hard at work building a national-scale calendar. We’re learning from the last 5 years and thinking about the next 20.

Since starting LMP, one of the most important things I’ve learned about running a non-profit is this:

Your passion for the work must be greater than your fear of asking.

Otherwise, you undermine the very work you are doing, and what would be the point of that?

So I’ll end this post with an inevitable, brave, game-changing fundraising request:

Whether you’re hearing about the Live Music Project for the first time, or whether you’ve been involved since its earliest beginnings; whether you love music or data or you just want to be a part of something that is good and useful; if you’re passionate about obliterating barriers to the arts, as I am – please join me in my quest to make the Live Music Project even more astounding and awesome for even more people.

Photo Credit: Shaya Lyon

Here’s how you can help, either as a one-off, or on a recurring basis:

  • Obliterate the ticket price barrier. Of the 8,000+ concerts that have been listed on the LMP calendar, more than 2,000 were free. Each month, we print and distribute a flyer that is devoted to free concerts. You can cover the cost of this flyer with a donation of $10/month. 
  • Obliterate the familiarity barrier. Risk keeps people from trying new things. LMP offers a free ticket lottery, encouraging audiences to take a chance on unfamiliar ensembles, programming, and venues. We announce these giveaways using an email service. You can cover the cost of the email service with a donation of $25/month. 
  • Obliterate the knowledge barrier. There have been 22 performances of Dvořák’s New World Symphony since the calendar launched; 44 tuba-centric concerts (yes, I will always hype the tuba); 87 Messiahs; and an obscene number of Nutcrackers (150, danced and non-). 35 concerts took place on December 8 alone. The LMP website makes all of these concerts easy to find and easier to sort through. It did that for 60,000 people in 2018. For $100, you can cover our website hosting for a year.

I love what we’re doing in the arts community. There’s so much good yet to come. Let’s make it happen!

Warmly,

Shaya

Live Music Project Means Community || Let’s Celebrate!

Giving Tuesday 2018 with Live Music Project

Dear Live Music Project Friends,

Our goal at Live Music Project is to connect people with live classical music in a way that strengthens community, celebrates listener agency, and amplifies the resources of local arts organizations. Which means, Live Music Project is about you, our community. We measure our success by seeing how many people interact with Live Music Project online. In the last year, more than 60,000 people visited livemusicproject.org to find events and learn more about our community. We also measure our success by how many tickets we give away each year with our Spontaneous Free Tickets program. In the 2017-2018 season, we distributed 800 tickets worth $20,000 to eager listeners – for free. We feel the most successful, though, when we see the smiles on your faces or hear about your positive experiences at classical music events across Seattle.

We have so much to be thankful for throughout the season. We are particularly grateful for how you give your time, energy, and resources to support this community. Volunteers make our world go ’round – in our most recent Fall event-a-thon, our volunteer Calendar Squad prepared more than 150 concerts for the coming season. Your support directly helps increase arts access, arts audiences, and arts community. If you would like to reaffirm your commitment to Live Music Project as a volunteer or with a donation, we would be thrilled.

Now, it’s time to have a little social media party!! Whether you are near or far, please join us in celebrating Giving Tuesday. Visit our Facebook or Instagram as we highlight our favorite aspect of Live Music Project: OUR COMMUNITY!

With gratitude,
Shaya

Finally, #GivingTuesday is so much more than one day in November. Year-round, our programs connect people with live classical music in a way that strengthens community, celebrates listener agency, and amplifies local arts resources. We hope you’ll support our efforts to maximize the reach of these artists and their beautiful, important work.
