Projects do not always go according to plan. Sharing what you learned can help you and others plan similar projects in the future. Help the movement learn from your experience by answering the following questions:

  • What worked well?
Concerts arise more and more interest among poets and musicians. This energise me to plan more projects in this direction.
  • What did not work so well?
Organisation and than record processing took quite a lot of time. Though april and may was quite a difficult time for me in my job. Also a had some unexpected personal problems - troubles with my notebook, and some troubles with health.
  • What would you do differently next time?
I`ll try to reserve more time for the project. Also if speaking about amount of new files uploaded to commons, it is more effective to concentrate on a concepcion - for example one translator or one composer. So I`m thinking about returning to a model I used before with Chopin. This model grants me to take the defined set of new recordings and sheet scores. Luckily now we have many poets who could perform good translations under free licens. I want to devote next projects mainy to Schubert, author of 600 splendid songs, most of them was never sung in Ukrainian. Thogh will not completely exclude such experiments as student`s concerts. n any case it is necessary to envolve more and more singers. Even young singers, some years later they will be wonderfull.
