Join us this Sunday on the ArtWalk for our first-ever music schowcase to spread awareness about the need for musical theater programs in public schools. We currently award grants to 14 Elementary Schools in Colorado, where 420 student performers sing for audiences of 7,000 students.

Help bring musical theater to every child in Colorado.

Our musicals educate, inspire, and delight public school students at no cost to the schools. Learn more or become a Sponsor.

The fundraiser is part of the new “Sundays on Santa Fe” taking place on the last Sunday of every month on the ArtWalk on Santa Fe Dr. All the galleries will be open, so it’s a great time to view the coming month’s new art installations without the immense First Friday crowds.

How to harmonize pitch with tempo

Here’s a useful tool to help composers harmonize the musical notes of a song with the tempo of that same song.

The numbers are written in beats per minute. The piano keys refer to the pitch that best harmonizes with that tempo. So, for example, a song written in 81.8503 bpm is most harmonious with the note F.

This chart assumes A is equal to 440 hz, tuned with equal temperament.
