Peiken intends MNuet, which launched on Sept. 4, to be an online hub for statewide classical music coverage.
He wants to create a community around classical music. Furthermore, members of MNuet will help support that.
"No media organization around here has a staff writer dedicated to covering the classical music beat any more,: says Peiken. "The coverage is all farmed out to freelancers."
While major media outlets broadcast occasional concerts, nobody's reporting on the scene, he says, adding, "You can learn about what the major players are doing, but you don’t get context, and you certainly don’t hear much from individual artists.”
