"To strengthen the profession of classical music journalism." That's the purpose of the Music Critics Association of North America.
|Scooped by Wallis Perry|
Some people don’t know where to meet other people that are in the music industry. Fortunately in 1956 an originization was founded for music critics. It is called the Music Critic Association of North America. It is the only originization that is completely devoted towards classical music. This association has many well-known critics from very well known newspapers and magazines. Such as “Paul Hume of the Washington Post, Irving Lowens of the Saturday Review, Miles Kastendieck of the New York Herald Tribune and Harold C. Schoenberg of the New York Times.” This organization sets up annual meetings, where all the members gather together for a convention to discuss issues as well as perks of that year in the industry. MCANA also has institutes set up across North America that educates students through seminars. Some places where you can find these seminars are in The Julliard School and Lincoln Center. I think that this is a great organization it allows people who have a common interest to come together. I also think that it is a great way for people to meet others, connections are very important.
