Chicago Classical Music offers downloadable music, event updates, news, and hot ticket deals through this community-based site.
Chicago Classical Music (CCM) is a comprehensive resource guide for Chicago’s classical music community. They are an umbrella website for over 30 organizations, providing timely information on shows, tickets, news, and so on.
CCM provided us with general content guidelines, including photos, bios of participating music organizations, audio/video samples, and an overall idea of how the site should be structured. We worked with them to ascertain how specific features would work and develop a plan to bring the site to life within the project’s specific parameters.
We collaborated with our friends at Little Green Cube to bring this Drupal-driven site to life, partnering with them on design ideas, content execution, project management, and development. The site was built on a custom Drupal implementation, which allows CCM to host hundreds of community forum users, dozens of active bloggers, downloadble music files, tickets deals, news items, and much more. The site also provides links to all organizations within the Chicago Classical Music community.
Other features include:
- Registered user section with custom content
- Download of the week
- Music and performance reviews
We continue to work with the CCM team on ways to improve site performance and maintain its many features as it grows into a thriving online creative community.
