A short paragraph- a vision statement- who we are and why we are who we are. A selection from one of our CDs that plays as soon as the page is accessed. A photo, maybe of the new conductor rehearsing the chorus, the date of our next concert, and either a link to a page with the program, or the program itself.
Photos and brief bios- musical backgrounds and interests.Each individual should probably write their own. Maybe the structure of our organization
Upcoming concerts- Next years season,and past programs, to give the visitor an idea of the kinds of programs we host, and the kinds of artists who perform with us.
List our CDs- maybe photo images of them, and (perhaps) an interactive page where they can purchase them. You could also list and sell CD's of people who have been guest artists in your series.
We can have both a Guest Book and a Contact Us page if we want. But here is where we put our email and/or mailing address- we should have a Po Box if we want to list a real address. If we have a Guest Book as well, we could invite comments and get names and addresses, and create a database of interested persons.
is a page for reciprocal links. You can have links
to Medieval Studies departments at Universities, Other early music
groups, other music groups to which members of the Grail Singers
belong, (The Ann Arbor Symphony), and Literature sites- other scholarly
might be interested in the same time periods. The important thing here
is we can have links to local groups, and promote music locally, but we
also have links to outside groups and organizations- We could
have links to music stores. What we want ideally is to
have them put our link on their site as well, so that we will get more
traffic to our site.
I also advocate having ads- using Google Adsense. Although you would not make very much money, it would pay for the cost of the site.
