Wikipedia:WikiProject Classical music

Contents

Welcome to WikiProject Classical Music! This WikiProject aims to improve and maintain all articles related to classical music that are not covered by other classical music related projects.

Participants help sort stubs and categories as well as source statements made throughout the world of classical music to provide a comprehensive documentation of classical music—including historical and musicological analysis.

WikiProject Classical music does not assess articles. We provide a general guideline on article formatting, including information on the use of biographical infoboxes.
