Project Goal[edit]

Briefly explain what are you trying to accomplish with this project, or what do you expect will change as a result of this grant. Example goals include, "recruit new editors", "add high quality content", or "train existing editors on a specific skill".

In general the goal of the WCU project could be formulated as making world musical artefacts more available, more understandable, more touching and free for Ukrainian musicians and lovers of music. In more specific terms the main goal is to get more free recordings and sheet music for wikimedia projects. Also the goal is to popularize wikipedia among musicians and envolve more contributors who could right about classiacl music and upload their recordings. Particularly our third activity - stunent`s concert is aimed to involve student of music university to wikimedia movement (at least we will try).

These are our previous grants:

Project Plan[edit]

We are planning to organize three concerts.

  2. The first WCU concert in Winnitsya with Mozart`s arias including 3 premiers (free translations by Ye. Drobiazko), Choir composition by Orlando Lasso and Wikimedia hymn, performed earlier in Kyiv. This event is planned on April, 22th.
  3. Stundent`s concert in Kyiv. Probably in May.

What will you have done at the end of your project? How will you follow-up with people that are involved with your project?

We have a web page about the project, a group in Facebook and also we will create announcement in Wikimeetup page in our local wiki (uk.wikipedia, uk.wikisourse). As usual the organisation where concert will be held also publish a relevant information about it.

Score preparing and printing apr. 6000 hrn (mostly Otroshenko`s translations which have been never published as sheet music)
Hall renting apr. 3000 hrn (we regard a Scientist`s hall in Kyiv as a best choice, while in Vynnitsia we expect to get a free hall in Historical museum. Student`s concert also will be held in a free hall, probably in Kyiv library for Youth - we are not sure we will get enough free recordings in a good quality but we hope some of them would be good contributors in future)

Posters and booklets apr. 1500 hrn for three events
