Marc van Bree’s Big List of Classical Music Twitterers

There’s nothing quite a satisfying as a good resource list and the world of cultural blogging has a new entry they can be proud of thanks to Marc van Bree, author of the Dutch Perspective, a self described “levensbeschouwing (a Dutch word, by way of Germany, meaning “world view”) based loosely on two themes: public relations and cultural affairs.” Marc’s resource list compiles classical music individuals and groups on Twitter…

ListCategorized into People or Organizations, each containing several additional sub categories, Marc’s list provides the twitter address as well as website URL and brief description. It’s a veritable Who’s Who of cultural tweeting. It is an invaluable tool for performing arts organizations looking to expand their social networking circles as well as anyone interested in staying in touch with those who help define the ever expanding online cultural community.

If you or your group isn’t included on Marc’s list, he has a handy form you can use to submit your information. Individuals can add or update information here while groups can use this form.

So make sure you take a moment to add Marc’s List to your bookmarks today!

About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
