LISTINGS These event

LISTINGS These event listings are free to all eligible artists, venues and presenters. These listings are, for reasons we do not have to explain, a work in progress as we explore how best to present to our readers all the new ways our music community is discovering to reach their audiences, in a time where the old constants of fixed dates, times and places to gather and meet no longer apply. For readers wanting to filter listings by event type or geography, we are similarly working at how to rejig our online listings at thewholenote. com to make them usefully searchable, and we encourage you to explore that resource. We look forward to your input as we move forward. Please address all concerns and queries to the attention of our listings editor, John Sharpe at TWO SECTIONS There are only two sections to the listings in this issue instead of our previous five. ● Section 1: Events by date ● Section 2: Continuing, ETCetera Section 1 includes any event that has a date and time you can circle on your calendar if you want to be there when it is presented for the first time: live and live-streamed performances; first broadcasts and screenings; concerts, workshops, symposia, and so on. If the event in question remains available after that first presentation (e.g. online or on demand), this is noted at the end of the listing in question. Section 2 is for recurring musical activities that readers can access in their own time, where the nature of the event or the name of the presenter is a more useful identifier than a particular date and time. HOW TO LIST: 1. Use the convenient online form at 2. Email listings to Please note, we do not take listings over the phone. Deadlines 1. Weekly online updates: submission deadline is 6pm Tuesday for Friday posting. 2. Print: fifteen days before publication. Next print issue (one of three double issues in the year) covers December 2020 and January 2021 and the submission deadline is 6pm Monday November 16. 24 | November 2020
