Classical Lounge was the first social networking site designed solely for classical music lovers.[citation needed] Built to expand the classical music community, the site and its membership are evidence to a modern, tech-savvy fan base that contradicts the stereotype of the "old and stuffy" classical music audience.[1]

The site facilitates interaction between musicians, students, presenters, managers, journalists, media, instrument makers and dealers. Classical music enthusiasts and audience members are also encouraged to participate. Members of the site can share their music and generally network with the broad classical music community.

History

Classical Lounge was founded in August 2006 by the members of the Miro Quartet. Since then, it has gained several thousand members. In September 2006, the PalmBeachPost.com called it "essentially a MySpace-style deal for classical players, composers, critics and enthusiast".[2] The article falsely credited the social networking site to 21C Media, and the news site later corrected its error.[3]
