It’s January, so that means it’s time for the annual NAMM show in Anaheim, California. NAMM is the biggest show in the USA for the musical instrument market, including music software like MusicXML. The show runs from Thursday, January 23 through Sunday, January 26.
This will be my 15th year attending NAMM and meeting with MusicXML developers. My meeting schedule is pretty full at this point though there are still some openings available, especially on Saturday. MakeMusic will be at Booth 6210 in Hall A.
If you want to meet but we haven’t arranged a meeting, stop by the booth. If I’m not there, somebody will be able to get your information to me to see if we can set something up. We won’t be having a separate MusicXML community meeting at NAMM this year.
On Wednesday the 22nd I will be attending The Hollywood Arrangers, an event organized by ASMAC, the American Society of Music Arrangers and Composers. This will be at Catalina’s in Hollywood from 10:30 am to 2:15 pm. I’ll be there at least through lunch and hopefully for the whole event. If you’ll be there, please come by and say hello.
I look forward to seeing many of you at these two events, and learning how you would like to see the MusicXML format and MusicXML software evolve and improve in the future.
