The National Flute Association awarded Ann Cameron Pearce‘s arrangement of Gypsy Rondo as a Finalist in their 2013 Newly Published Music competition! This is the first time ScoreVivo has received this honor. The piece will be performed at the New Orleans Convention. So – come on down and join the fun!
In August 2011, ScoreVivo.com launched with 10 arrangements; all by Ann Cameron Pearce. Today, we are thrilled to announce that we have published our 100th arrangement (this total includes some original compositions).
What started out as a simple mother/son operation to give Ann more ownership of her work and the publishing process, has grown to feature the work of 13 talented composers and arrangers.
We are thrilled at how well our innovative business model and way of publishing has been received. Unlike traditional publishers, ScoreVivo requires its artists to retain copyright ownership of their work.
And while each artist is free to leave at any time, not a single one has. Our artist earn much higher commission, receive quarterly payments, and are treated more like partners than clients. By keeping our talented composers and arrangers happy they can focus on what they do best – creating exciting and new arrangements.
We’d also like to thank our customers for believing in us. From across the globe, hundreds of you find our site each week. It gives us much pride in thinking that our work is being performed in concert halls and venues from Germany to Japan to Brazil.
So on this 100th milestone, we thank you.
We have a very nice development this week in that Jonathan Cohen, one of our well-known composers on ScoreVivo, has requested that all of his earnings through our website be donated to VH1SaveTheMusic.com.
The VH1 Save The Music Foundation’s core mission is to restore instrumental music education programs, ensuring that every child has access to a complete education that includes the benefits of music instruction.
Please help us thank Jonathan for assisting this worthwhile organization.
Al Hager recently received a huge honor in recognition of World Health Day 2012!
The staff of the Jeffrey Gorodetsky Medical Practice honored him as a true example of healthy aging. In the spirit of “adding life to years” instead of simply adding years to life they cited his participation in competitive barefoot water skiing as an amazing feat (or maybe “feet”).
Al is quoted as saying he strives to “outlive his competitors” via his motto: Everybody has to grow older, but growing up is optional.
Al credits his many years of playing woodwind instruments as providing him with the endurance required in this very physical sport. Of course, eating well and exercising obviously play a vital role in Al’s healthy aging too.
Dr. Gorodetsky has been impressed with Al’s philosophy and has enjoyed learning from him and observing his positive spirit. ScoreVivo is pleased to have Al Hager as one our featured composers and arrangers.
I’m very excited to be featured in an article in “Fluit” a publication of the Nederlands Fluit Genootschap (Dutch Flute Society).
This is a very well done 68-page glossy magazine just full of “flutistic” articles and photos. Evidently, there are four issues each year. The issue that appeared in my mailbox a couple of days ago is “2011-4.”
Fransje de Visser wrote the article as a description of the National Flute Association Convention that was held in Charlotte in August 2011. About one-half of her article is about me and my work as a composer/arranger and she includes four photos: one of the Raleigh Area Flute Association as we performed “Popcorn Polka” (with boomwhackers in full evidence!), and another that is my Facebook photo.
Prior to August, Fransje and I had been emailing each other; we made a point to meet each other at the convention. Someday I hope to find someone to translate all of this article’s text as written by my new friend from across the pond!
