NEW WEBSITE UNDER DEVELOPMENT!
We’ve engaged a web designer to set up an attractive and easy-to-use
website for MPA, and she is well underway! Although the site is under
construction, you can take a look at what our home page will look like
by going to the site: www.musicpublishersofamerica.com.
Once the new site is operational, you’ll be able to order all the music
easily and pay for it online for instant download. Or, if it is one of our
archived pieces, you’ll be able to special order that hard-to-find piece
you’ve been looking for. We’re adding other features, too, including
access to company news and a special section for composers and
arrangers looking for a publisher.
The initial inventory available for purchase will be from our core
Vitak-Elsnic collection of polka music, but we also have plans
underway to expand into other genres.
We expect the website to be operational within the next few months
and will send out an announcement to everyone on our mailing list
once that happens.
NEW ARRANGEMENTS BEING ADDED TO INVENTORY
In our last newsletter, we introduced you to Ernie Broeniman, who had
done a fresh arrangement of 13 Vitak-Elsnic classics for concert band.
Ernie’s Old Time Band Folio Volume 1 was released late in 2012.
Good news! Ernie has completed new concert band arrangements of
other great Vitak-Elsnic tunes. We’ll be adding Ernie’s new work –
Ernie’s Old Time Band Folio Volume 2 – to our website once it is up, as
well as individual charts for some of the songs in both the folios.
We’re also in discussions with several other arrangers who will also be
providing new arrangements for today’s bands.
IT’S THE WEDDING SEASON
One of my nieces is getting married soon, and the band will play at the
couple’s reception. We’ll pick up some of the old standards, but
wanted to find that special music, just right for the occasion. We
scoured the Vitak-Elsnic collection and came up with a surprising
number of wedding and love-based possibilities. If you’re looking for
music for wedding receptions, especially for that special dance between
daughter and father, consider the following, all of which are in our
inventory at the Vitak-Elsnic site (www.vitak-elsnic.com) (O =
orchestra or band arrangement; A = accordion):
