The web site has several new and notable features:

  • Music uploading and downloading capabilities: EMA members may post MP3 files from their early music recordings and concerts on the site; members of the general public may listen to or download the files free of charge
  • Member profiles: EMA members may create “member profiles” including their photos, contact info, brief resumes, music files, events, links to their websites, videos, etc.
  • Discussion forum: EMA members may participate in an online discussion forum
  • Calendars of events: Concert calendar and Festivals and Workshops calendar have been improved for clear display and easy access to the public

The web site was developed by FuseIQ, a web development firm based in Seattle. The project was funded in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
