I'm the founder (together with my husband David) of Bachtrack, a web site which exists to let classical musicians list where they are performing, and audiences find what's being played (and by who, where and when). Listings are free, and as I write this, we have around 5,000 concerts and operas listed - split roughly evenly between the UK, the US and Europe.

There's lots of other stuff on the site as well: for example, if you're a professional performer, you can write a short biography of yourself and a photo. There is a UK directory of music shops and services (we'd love to hear from anyone who would like to put one together for the US or other countries), and there are special listings of kids events.

Also for the UK, our For teens section lists all kinds of events and activities for teenagers: competitions, workshops etc,including our Young Reviewer programme which gets free tickets for teenagers to go and see classical concerts.

We're always on the lookout for material to go on the site - so do visit the site and see what's there, or send us material you think we might like to publish.
