As soon as we announced that Music SE would be graduating, the community mobilized to get the site name changed to better reflect how music, as a discipline, gets explored in Q&A around here. Now, after a good deal of debate, a new name has been selected. Upon graduation the name 'Musical Practice & Performance' will be no more.

This site's official name will become Music: Practice & Theory.

This post serves as an official announcement. If you're wondering why this name was chosen, have a look at these two answers to the recent 'Site Rename Poll'.

Thanks to everyone who weighed in.

  • Good news! When will the change be into effect? Is there a defined date for it? – SeuMenezes Nov 6 '14 at 10:10

    6-8 weeks, or whenever the next build goes out @SeuMenezes. – Shog9 Nov 6 '14 at 18:52

    Alexander - it has been discussed extensively. Read Ana's comments over on the main post. – Doktor Mayhem Nov 9 '14 at 14:06

I don't think it was clearly publicised that the name had changed from the most popular Music:Theory and Practice option. If we're having a decision about the whole site's direction, the whole site should have an equal say!

Rename the site to Music: Theory and Practice?

    As discussed, the whole site has an equal say, and this was taken into account by Stack Exchange. They went with our top scoring answer, and slightly tweaked it. It is down to the individual to visit meta (and probably chat) regularly if you are interested in development of the site. – Doktor Mayhem Nov 9 '14 at 14:08
