Merry Christmas and a happy New Year

The cultural sector has a very difficult time due to the corona crisis, we don't need to tell anyone that.
Fortunately, new forms of music sharing are emerging. Maybe not quite as we would like to see without a live audience, but a lot is possible online. Because making music is in the blood of many and not playing is not an option.

Looking back for us, it was strange, exciting, exciting, complicated, sometimes exhausting, but always great fun to work with Sonolize. Fortunately, we are looking ahead and use this time to expand the platform even further into the place where composers and musicians digitally offer and buy high-quality sheet music. Always working from the "fair play" and "fair pay" idea for the composer. We have now been able to enthuse more than 60 composers from five countries to join our independent platform. And many have committed to participate. We have great ambitions to become number 1 in Europe.

We wish everyone, and in particular our friends, composers and musicians a very merry Christmas and a beautiful, happy, loving, healthy and safe New Year.
