Want to write for Classical Source?

Hi readers, Classical Source is looking to expand its coverage, not just in London and New York, our mainstays. Fancy being a contributor? Ideally, you’ll need to be an experienced concert-goer and listener, but if a talented first-time reviewer, you are still in with a chance. Please drop a line to our friendly editor, Colin ([email protected]), with some information about yourself and, as appropriate, examples of previously published work.
