Listener Directed Productions, Inc.

Listener Directed Productions, Inc. is the producer of Virtuoso Voices, an interview clip service for classical music stations, presenting preeminent and upcoming classical music performers, conductors and composers talking in 20 to 35 second clips. These topical and evergreen sound bites enable announcers to bring an additional perspective to the music they play on their shifts.

Virtuoso Voices is also Public Radio's primary source for classical music fundraising messages, providing stations a variety of fundraising material featuring most of the performers we interview. Virtuoso Voices was the most downloaded PRX Series in 2007. Please listen to both our enanced intro clips and fundraising spots by visiting our website www.virtuosovoices.org .  There you can also see and hear how stations are using Virtuoso Voices on their air.

HOW DOES VIRTUOSO VOICES WORK? We're continually interviewing leading classical music performers around the country. Every month, a new collection of clips from these interviews is available on our ftp site, on CD and here on PRX. You have access to an ever increasing bank of content from a wide variety of performers whose views and experiences you can access anytime.

For more information send an e-mail to "info (at) listenerdirect (dot) org".
