If you happen upon a post that very obviously does not have to do with classical music, please report it! Two reports and it'll be automoderated. Seems like a lot of terrible Soundcloud rappers have a penchant for putting their "hot new tracks" here for some reason.

If you see anything that's obvious self-promotion (especially if it's not classical), or has a sensationalized title, feel free to report that too.

Classical music memes belong in /r/ClassicalMemes.

And because apparently it needs to be said... No, this is not the classic rock sub. This is Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Gershwin, Copland, Ravel, Stockhausen, Pärt... etc etc etc.

We also allow multicultural classical music - e.g. Indian, Chinese...

Hi again! Here's the challenge post for this month. As usual, you can submit compositions as a reply to that post. The challenges are

Main challenge: Write a piece that switches between at least three different time signatures. For extra fun, use an irregular time signature (such as 5/4 or 7/8).

Text challenges: (two of them!)

Full details are on the /r/MonthlyComposition post. Also check out some tone poems from last month.

I've been wanting to know what this piece is for a while, but neither Shazam nor SoundHound can identify it.

Hi everyone! The title says it all. I’m wondering if anyone has any experience with this? I’m looking at an orchestra about 900 miles from me. I’ve done the math and I would still come out ahead as far as profit/travel expenses goes, so that’s no concern. The only reason I am interested in the orchestra is because it’s in a cool city and I have tons of friends there.

Thanks for reading this!

Yesterday, while driving with my 5 year old daughter, I played The Rite of Spring. She kept quiet the entire ride, so I didn't think she was even listening. Today, while driving , she piped up from the backseat "Hey Dad, can you play the JAWS music again ? Cause I really liked it."

Hey there, I've been playing piano for a little while now and was wondering what would be the best ragtime to try (have already played a simplified version of the entertainer by Scott Joplin But I am looking to learn a part of or the whole of a real ragtime)
