How many of you use YouTube to search for classical music? I find myself using it at least once a week. I get great pleasure from searching for old, often hard to find, performances of legendary singers like Maria Callas, Dame Joan Sutherland, Jose Van Dam, and Jussi Bjorling. Do you have favorite clips of ballet, opera, symphonies, and more? Post a comment about it and share your joy with the rest of us!

Aaron, Thanks for your great suggestion to try YouTube. Yesterday I gave it a try, having never been to the site, and was happy to sit for hours listening to my classical music favorites.
The best, to me, was Anna Moffo singing Rachmaninoff’s Vocalise. It was heaven. The time was better spent than watching the Oscars! Thanks again for pointing me in this unexpected direction.

Possibilities that Youtube give us to watch and hear wonderful music are great. I love
this video one of my favorite Rossini’s piece.

Thank you Aaron for this site.

I too have discovered the joy of classical music on you tube. I spent the whole weekend listening and watching videos of my favorite tenor, Mario del Monaco. For me, he’s the best ever with Placido Domingo a close second.
And I found you tube through one of your links. Thanks again!

This might be a bit elementary, but I learned a lot about classical music through these videos – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NPq4DmmeUSw&feature=PlayList&p=3B196CB47BC69CC1&index=0&playnext=1
