Today in London Sibelius, one of the major music notation software companies, closed it’s doors. Looks like Avid, it’s parent company, is going to kill it off. I’m an old-fashioned pencil and paper guy, but this will still deeply affect my copyists, my publishers, and just about every composer I know. If you are a Finale user, this impacts you as well, as the competition from Sibelius has pushed Finale to innovate and improve.
There is a passionate online effort to keep the company afloat, and they need all the help they can get. Please follow this link to show your support and keep Sibelius alive.
