While brushed off by many as a side project, The BQE was one of the most successful compositional attempts from a singer/songwriter in pop history and with rumors of his upcoming film-scoring projects, it doesn’t seem like Stevens plans on settling down any time soon. Not surprisingly, the public looked elsewhere, to what we are right to call, and right to admire for being, popular music.

Kendis formed his own publishing company, Kendis Music Company. The second half of the 16th century witnessed the beginnings of the tradition which many music lovers readily associate with the normal feel of 'classical' music.

Occupational employment projections are developed for all states by Labor Market Information (LMI) or individual state Employment Projections offices. Some of the most famous classical artists today are classical crossover artists since they are the most visible representations of classical music.
