Comments from I JethroBT (WMF)[edit]

Hi A1, and thanks for preparing this report. I'm very sorry for the long wait in review, as our staff has been limited and I have personally been away on parental leave.

I just spent some time listening to some of the recordings created as a result of this project, and I think they are wonderful. They will surely make excellent additions on WikiSource and for music, music history, and some biographical articles reflecting some of these composers' works. I also appreciate your work in publicizing your efforts through the Wikimedia Blog with Ed Erhart (WMF). Furthermore, the sheet music publications will be useful for practitioners and educators as well. Please let us know if you plan to run more projects like this in the future, and I can try to help you find some resources or individuals with advice on recording for next time. As for your remaining funds, both of these additional expenses are approved. When do you think it will be possible to send us receipts for those expenses? I have approved your documentation for other expenses already, and I will be able to approve this report once the remaining receipts are sent to us.

Oh, two other questions I had-- how many people participated in contributing to this project? And approximately how many people attended the concerts? I JethroBT (WMF) (talk) 01:30, 7 November 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi, I JethroBT (WMF), Thank you for appriciating! My nearest prpject is a vocal contest - Grants:Project/Rapid/World classics in Ukrainian Vocal contest. I hope the contest will be a new step in the project and let me evolve more musicians and more interesting materials. This project is already funded though some unexpected difficulties determined me to request changes to grant amount (see here). So I`d be grateful for any help with it.

Concerning remaining fund - remaining US$82.30 was deducted from my new submission by grant commettee (according to letter by MJue (WMF)). So I`m afraid I will not have enough sources for publishing extra examples of Chopin songs nearest time. --A1 (talk) 01:15, 9 November 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
