Incongruities

.
The other day, during a visit to the website of a local classical music performing organization, I couldn’t help but notice the following:

The ensemble is promoting its fall season, which features works by Schubert and C.P.E. Bach. But ... the primary image on the site (aside from a photo of the ensemble) is a photo of a bust of Beethoven. And a large “Beethoven” is very prominent, in a larger font than the type used for the name of the ensemble.

The organization is a choral ensemble. But ... The background image on the home page features a picture of instrumental sheet music: Chopin’s Nocturne in E-flat, Op. 9, No. 2.

So…the choral ensemble that is preparing to sing Schubert and C.P.E. Bach is promoting itself with images of Beethoven and an instrumental score of music by Chopin.
