How To Search

[Under Construction]


There are five Types of Entry in the Directory:

Organizers - concert societies, cultural festivals, music colleges and academies, etc

Performers - orchestras and bands, choirs and singers, chamber ensembles, etc

Soloists - pianists, violinists, sopranos, tenors, etc

Venues - cathedrals, concert halls, arts centres, etc

World of Classical Music - portals, associations, magazines, online platforms, etc

Each Record is cross-referenced if appropriate to a Locality and Area within the EXPLORE Categorization, accompanied by a Google-based Map pinpoint if that seems likely to be helpful.


All Listings

If you click All Listings - displayed top right under the A-Z on most Pages of Listings - you will be able to Sort the Listings by:

- Recently Added (reverse chronological order)

- Popular (ranking of the number of displays of the Full Records of Entries which have been made so far by Users of the Directory: the most popular Record first)

- Most Visited (ranking of the number of links to the Websites primarily cited in the Entries which have been made so far by Directory Users: the most visited Website first)

as alternatives to the default Alphabetical (by Title of Entry)

All Listings also 'explodes' and collates the Entries for a Category and any Sub-Categories it has (e.g. for 'South West England' this would include all the Entries within Avon, Cornwall, Devon etc as well as those within Bath, Bodmin, Barnstaple etc; for 'Orchestras and Bands' it would include all the Entries for Big Bands, Brass and Silver Bands, Chamber Orchestras, etc)

Once you have an 'All Listings' you can Filter listings using various parameters (click top left). SO - for instance - you could generate a listing of the ‘Brass and Silver Bands’ in ‘Cornwall’ which have Entries in the Directory to date.

Note that on certain diplays it is also possible to do all this for the Complete Directory by clicking on “All Listings” in the banner at the top of the screen.
