Index page is A1009207, where it states:

Project Name: Leonard Bernstein - Composer
Field Researcher: Bels U188050
Department: Music
Faculty: Arts
Start Date: 1 April 2003
End Date: 12 May 2003
Assisting Sub-Editor: I'll ask around.

Project Description

This project will be a greatly slimmed-down version of the original conception. There will be an introductory entry with a biography, and up to four further entries concentrating on selected Bernstein compositions or compositional genres. Candidates for inclusion are the Broadway musicals, the operas, the symphonies, the choral works, the avant-garde songs, and the sacred works. The biggest problem will lie in deciding what to leave out.

Contributing Researcher:
Gubernatrix U206615 ('West Side Story')

If this one goes OK, future additions or separate projects on this hugely influential figure can be envisaged, eg as
Conductor
Pianist
Educator
Writer
Influence on 20th C American Music
etc

Hi Bels,

I've finally added you to the uni index, although you've been put into the new pages, rather than the old. Hopefully the relaunch will happen before the end of your project. smiley - smiley

Hi Bels,

I'm trying to find promising projects that we might be able to get on the Front Page as a project, how is this one going? You seem to have put a lot of work in.

It's finished. It's subbed. There are just a few typos in one of the entries that anyone could deal with if I give them the list.

I just checked. I didn't have time earlier. The typos have been fixed. Nobody told me. Nobody tells me anything anymore.

Somebody told me a good joke. See if you like it.

Q: What does an insomniac, agnostic, dyslexic person do?

A: They stay up all night wondering if there is a dog.
