Founded by bloggers Mark Berry (Boulezian), Mary Nguyen (Trend FEM), Simon Brackenborough (Corymbus) and Frances Wilson (The Cross-Eyed Pianist), Music Into Words seeks to explore the wide variety of writing about classical music today in a series of presentations and discussion events, live and online – from programme notes to concert reviews, music cricitism to academic writing, musicians writing about music and more.

The project was launched in February 2016 with an event featuring presentations by music journalist and writer Jessica Duchen, Imogen Tilden, arts commissioning editor at The Guardian, and bloggers on music and culture Mary Nguyen and Simon Brackenborough.
