So here's the RFC for a CMFC.
I suppose the rules would have to be fairly loose, since "classical" music is a huge field. I, for one, would like to allow vocal music, in addition to instrumental stuff. One presumes, based on existing MFC entries, some of them successful, that non-husi folks in ensembles with husi folks would be acceptable. And I'd think in the grand Husi Fun Challenge tradition, cheating should be encouraged. Whimsy often wins these things.
I suppose copyright issues will be blissfully ignored, if you happen to pick a tune that somebody who's still lively enough to sue you still owns. I think it goes without saying that posting a commercial, copyrighted performance by somebody else is not in the spirit of the challenge.
And I'm guessing that full, symphony-length pieces are not going to be listened to by very many of the husi voting public. So pick something a few minutes long; maybe 5-10 at the outside.
Now about the timeframe... If it's too long, people will put off starting something til it's almost too late. If it's too short, people will just despair instead of entering. Is there a "just right" in between?
And how do you get to CMFC Hall? Practice, practice, practice!
So whaddya say? Fun? Or not? Comments are welcome, and we'll maybe get this thing rolling in a week or so.
