Ladies and Gentlemen,
this is some form of release.
Example first: https://laborejo.org/multichannelplayer/
Have you ever tried to convince your friends and family to install a Linux system just so they can replicate your modular setup to listen to a pre-production where they are supposed to play the saxophone solo? Me neither. But I don't think it would work. Instead:
This web software with the catchy name Multichannel_Web_Video_Audio_Player_With_Volume_Mixer is a tool for the boss (you) of ensembles and bands to distribute pre-productions for practice. But nothing keeps you from using it for real music with, as some kind of novelty player.
The user can adjust the volume levels of individual instruments and follow along a visual presentation (notation, conductor video etc.). This includes optional tracks, such as metronome clicks, spoken instructions or alternative versions of tracks.
Because it relies on simple video files there is no limit to quality and flexibility.
Works in every browser. No downloads. No obscure technology is involved. This can be used by the 60+ generation in your choir.
The provided Git/README (see link below) gives more ideas and examples why this tool could be beneficial to you.
The README also helps to setup your own player and offers a workflow to produce videos, which is quite complicated to be honest.
This is not a "proper" release because there is nothing to package. You just copy files to your web server.
License is AGPL 3 or later.

Drumstick (https://drumstick.sourceforge.io/docs/index.html) is a set of
GPLv3 licensed C++/Qt libraries for MIDI applications. The project includes
several tools as examples, and among them is the drumstick-guiplayer
utility that leverages the Drumstick::ALSA library, so it is available only
for Linux (because the ALSA sequencer is a linux only technology). Some
people have requested a program with the same functionalities also on
Windows and macOS, so here it is. But this project is much more ...
Some key features
* MIDI Output to hardware MIDI ports, or any other Drumstick backends, like
* Transpose song tonality between -12 and +12 semitones
* Change MIDI volume level (using MIDI CC7)
* Scale song speed between half and double tempo
* Supports MID/KAR (Standard MIDI Files) and WRK (Cakewalk) file formats
Changes in v1.3.0
* Spanish translation updates, thanks to Darío Hereñú
* Full screen option for Lyrics and Piano Player windows
* MIDI texts/lyrics decoding defaults to Latin1
* New Preferences dialog, with many options...
* Forced internal icons (based on 'breeze') instead of the Unix Desktop
* Forced dark mode (useful for Windows)
* Qt widgets style (defaults to Fusion in Windows)
* Auto-Play after loading
* New Playlist editor
* Previous/Next song navigation buttons
* Auto advance to the next song only when auto-play is enabled
* Autogenerated initial playlist
* Better support for WRK files with lyrics and other metadata
* MIDI and Karaoke examples
* Support for KeySignature meta-event
* Desktop and AppStream metadata updated
* Updated CMake buildsystem
* minimum required cmake version 3.14
* macOS target Sierra (10.12)
* uninstall target
* C++11 compiler
* Drumstick libraries v2.2
* Uchardet v0.0.7

Virtual MIDI Piano Keyboard is a MIDI events generator and receiver. It
doesn't produce any sound by itself, but can be used to drive a MIDI
synthesizer (either hardware or software, internal or external). You can
use the computer's keyboard to play MIDI notes, and also the mouse. You can
use the Virtual MIDI Piano Keyboard to display the played MIDI notes from
another instrument or MIDI file player.
Changes in v0.8.3
* Czech translation updated, thanks to Pavel Fric
* French and German translations updated, thanks to Frank Kober
* Documentation fixes (GH ticket #2, Thanks to Darío Hereñú)
* Preferences dialog reorganization, options are now split into three tabs
* New option: Qt Widgets style
* New option: Forced dark mode
* Windows: Fusion style assigned by default (option can be changed in the
command line or the preferences dialog)
* Added SCM Revision to the about box, when building from SVN or Git
* Revised GNUInstallDirs usage.
* New option: BUILD_DOCS, enabled by default in Unix. You can use it to
avoid building the man page.
* Requires: drumstick-2.2.0
Compilation minimum requirements for all platforms:
* CMake 3.14
* Qt 5.7
* Drumstick 2.2
