Dear friends, colleagues and readers,
After three years of supervising and editing HudsonSounds I’ve turned over the reigns to Liz Friedman, a management consultant to composers and performers who has been a contributor to the site since June of last year.
I’m immensely proud that HudsonSounds quickly found an audience and has become the go-to destination for information and insight on the local classical music scene, and I’m confident that the recently launched HudsonDance will have similar success. It’s been great interacting in new ways with local musicians, producers and administrators and a pleasure to watch our bloggers blossom as writers and commentators! I’m also especially grateful for the support of the advertisers. But after much consideration, I decided it was time for me to turn my efforts to other pursuits. I continue to write for the Times Union, of course, and will stay an active contributor to HudsonSounds with the title of Founding Editor.
I have great confidence that Liz will continue and advance the good work of HudsonSounds. She’s extremely knowledgeable about the local and national music scene and is also up to date on the role of information technology in the arts.
See you on line and at the concerts!
