Musopen

Came across this today.  It’s a site which was set up by by the current Director of Marketing at Box.net while he was a student at Skidmore College.  Its aim is to distribute out of copyright classical music free of charge – both in MP3 and sheet music form.  Currently they are seeking donations for a fundraising drive to enable the music to be recorded by a international orchestra, and from the look of the amount on their Kickstarter page, I think they might have done it!  Had a brief browse through the site, and currently it looks as if they used the services of the Skidmore College Orchestra for some of the works. 

I really hope they succeed with this site, as it seems to be a superb classical music resource already!
