link roundup

Link roundup is a weekly list of fun, weird, and just plain interesting things that you might not have seen before, from all corners of the classical music internet.

Yeah, you heard us right -- hip hopera! Also in this week's roundup: 5,000 pages of Verdi's drafts made public, Sufjan Stevens's new ballet, and classcial composers as John Mulaney quotes.

Virtual reality! Acrobatic flutists! Yo-Yo Ma! This week, our link roundup is a grab-bag. Let's go!

We're back with a classic link roundup this week! The TravelBass, a couple of cats, and free tickets to the symphony for workers affected by the government shutdown, all right here.

If you're like us, you made a resolution to read more in 2019. That's where we come in: this link roundup features fun stories and interesting reads from this week in classical music!

Another link roundup for the books! Featuring our very own #CDOTWOTY bracket, an off-the-charts cool string quartet, and, yep, Hildegard von Snowman.
