Check out the squeaky-new, a sort of upscale MySpace-y networking site for classical musicians. Joshua Gindele, the cellist for the MirĂ³ Quartet, just shepherded it online yesterday, and it looks good -- with groups, forums, classifieds, file-sharing and so on, it could grow into a useful and very cool resource for the classical community.

Connectivity: it rocks.

And by the way -- if you're in New York this weekend, the MirĂ³ will be joining Joshua Bell and friends in Mendelssohn's early-but-tasty Octet at the Mostly Mozart Festival (Sunday night at Lincoln Center).
