Incredible Music History Resource!

You must go check out the Keeping Score website, developed by the San Francisco Symphony! According to the website, “Keeping Score is the San Francisco Symphony’s national, multi-year program designed to make classical music more accessible to people of all ages and musical backgrounds. Keeping Score uses media in its most public and accessible forms to show that classical music can speak to everyone and instill a lifelong love of music.

There are five individual sites you can explore: Primal Moves, Beethoven, Copland, Stravinski and Tchaikovsky. Most of the sites highlight a specific work by the composer and include a variety of articles, images and videos to help you learn about the composer. The sites are aesthetically gorgeous and technologically cutting-edge. You can follow along on the score while watching a video of the symphony performers or you can explore the instruments of the orchestra and watch a short video clip of that section playing a portion of the piece and much, much more! Absolutely fascinating! I know I could spend hours working my way through everything this site has to offer!
