I'm looking for a CMS for private events that I can taylor
specifically for an organization in the Bay Area that wants to share
details of private, free Opera concerts among their constituents.
Basically I'd want a way for users to join / get approval from an
admin, and then become aware of events, search for events, etc.
Nice-to-haves would be the ability for a user to upgrade their
profile, so they can host an event, or become at artist, so that
producers can contact them to perform in events. This may sound like
a tall order, but everything can be kept really light. Inter-member
communications / RSVP's / etc. don't have to be managed from the site
itself. Performers only need to upload a picture of themselves and
provide basic info. That sort of thing. My current approach has been
to develop this in Wordpress using a combination of plug-ins, but I'm
also open to explore things that out there that already exists or
figuring out ways to combine current platforms that already do what
they do well. Any ideas?
