How do I follow New Music USA projects?

You’ve no doubt noticed that the projects on New Music USA offer a breathtaking view into the creativity happening across the country right now. Often, the projects we feature are just getting started, and we give you the chance to be in on the action as they come to fruition. The organizer of a project and their approved collaborators post Updates on their progress. These can be the development of a new work, preparing for performances, insight into the compositional process, even obstacles along the way. As a follower, you get to be the first to hear the rough mix, see the new costume design, watch the rehearsal footage, and more.

On every project page there’s a follow button. If you’ve already registered for an account on New Music USA, all you have to do is the click the button. Don’t have an account? Not to worry, registration is free and simple, just click the Register link at the top right your browser window.

When you elect to follow a project, the first thing you’ll get is an email in your inbox confirming that you’re following the project. The project’s organizer gets a similar notification (but don’t worry, we don’t give out your contact information). After that, when the organizer and collaborators on a project post updates, you’ll get a notification by email with a link to the update. Read, watch, enjoy and marvel.  You can also leave an encouraging comment or thoughtful response on the project page.

On your profile (the page you land on when you log in), you can see some of the projects you’re following and which have posted recent updates in the left column. You can see all the projects you are following by clicking "More."
