A huge thank you to everybody who has backed us and made the sheet music revolution possible! OpenScore has been our dream for many years, and we know from your comments and messages that many of you shared the same dream for just as long.

It took years for crowdsourcing projects like Wikipedia to gain momentum, but your support will allow us to hit the ground running. We’ve already had a huge number of people reach out to us who are interested in transcribing, and thanks to them we’ve been able to publish the very first OpenScore Editions.

There are still a couple of days left of the campaign, and all the money we raise in this time will be put to good use. This is your chance to make sure your favorite piece or composer is one of the ones to get liberated first, before we move on to do all public domain sheet music.

We leave you for the time being with Tchaikovsky’s epic 1812 Overture. Thanks again for your support!

      I listened to he MuseScore version and what a wonderful restitution ! But perhaps MuseScore could enhance the sound of instruments. Even with a good sound interface, the feedback is not as good as it could be : just a little enhancement on instrument sound definition could give back something more pleasant to listen :) whatever you will do, I do appreciate a lot your project ! THANKS A LOT !!!!
