The centenary of Benjamin Britten is fast approaching, and music organisations are called to join the global celebrations for this major 20th century composer. Any organisation planning Britten performances or other relevant activities between September 2012 and August 2014 is warmly invited to use the Britten 100 events database to help spread the word, to use the official Britten 100 logo and to download many other useful online resources. All of these are now live at the new Britten centenary website, www.britten100.org.
The Britten–Pears Foundation is working closely with Britten's publishers – Boosey & Hawkes, Faber Music and Chester Music – to co-ordinate the Britten centenary which will be officially launched on the composer's 99th birthday, 22 November 2012. We look forward to hearing about Britten centenary events from every part of the world and from organisations large and small.
