For over a year, viewers have been tuned in to professionally recorded live broadcasts of Bands of America events on FloMarching. This is a fantastic virtual option for all of us to experience life-changing performances.
Music for All has additional plans to meet our growing audience interest and to bring life to timeless past performances.
Music for All has contracted with the Scholastic Performance Network (The “SPiN Network”) to provide Music for All students, parents, and fans access to on-demand videos of scholastic music performances at a reasonable cost, including archival Music for All and Bands of America performances 2015 and prior.
Students, parents, and fans may access the Network by purchasing SPiN subscriptions for $25 per year. This fee provides access to all channels on the SPiN Network, which will soon include the Music for All channel.
SPiN has agreed to fund the restoration and digitization of Music for All video archives (including Bands of America performances) to allow them to be enjoyed by students and parents, and used by instructors for educational purposes.
Music for All will soon begin uploading its archives onto its SPiN Channel.
"For many years, we have collected a considerable library of content and this new service will allow subscribers to stream and enjoy programming whenever they want and wherever they are," said Eric L. Martin, Music for All’s President and CEO. “Music for All is grateful to the SPiN Network for the time and effort its team expended to make this service possible and its generous support for our legacy and content preservation initiatives. We believe that affordable access to recordings of student performances is central to promoting music education and raising the quality of scholastic music performances. I encourage every teacher, administrator, and school district to take a look at SPiN’s offering and consider the benefits and peace of mind that comes with participation.”
