CAUTION UNDER

CAUTION UNDER CONSTRUCTION listings@theWholeNote.com Event listings are free of charge to artists, venues and presenters. Our listings continue to be a work in progress as we all, musicians, presenters and media alike, explore the best ways to reach audiences in a timely fashion. For us, a comprehensive and reliable monthly calendar of live musical events, in these rapidly changing times is not a realistic goal. Instead what you see here is a snapshot, dated September 12, of our new WEEKLY UPDATES, available both as a regular e-letter and on our website. In these volatile times, readers are encouraged to check weekly for changes and updates to existing listings, and for the numerous new listings being added each week, both current and further into the future. You can register for the weekly updates at thewholenote.com/newsletter. IN THIS ISSUE: TWO LISTINGS SECTIONS ● Section 1: Events by date for Sep 15 – Nov 5 These are events with an announced date and time that one could circle on a calendar, in order to “be there” when it happens for the first (or only) time. This includes live and livestreamed 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. ● Section 2: Ongoing online musical activity including date-related events now available on demand online. These are musical activities that readers can access in their own time, usefully identified by the name of the presenter or the nature of the event. HOW TO LIST: 1. Use the convenient online form at thewholenote.com/applylistings 2. Email listings to listings@thewholenote.com. Please note, we do not take listings over the phone. Deadlines 1. Weekly online updates: submission deadline is 6pm Tuesday of the week prior to the event in question, for Friday posting. 2. Print: approximately fifteen days before publication. Our next print issue covers November to mid-December 2021, and the submission deadline for new listings and updates to listings previously processed is 6pm Monday October 11. Events by Date | September 15 to November 5, 2021 PLEASE NOTE: All times are Eastern Time unless otherwise noted. Listings are based on information sent to WholeNote in advance by event presenters. Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, some events may be cancelled or postponed. Please visit presenters’ websites or contact them directly for updates.
