Dream with us below about what New Classicalcould be.
Now that classical musicians can perform in clubs (thanks to smoking laws), do you believe musicians or even chamber orchestras can attract new listeners there?
What needs to change in concert halls or the music to attract new audiences? Some orchestras have long parties, alternating pop sets with classical performances, or offer drinks or food with the ticket price. What will hook new listeners? What brings YOU out to events?
Are standards negotiable or non-negotiable to share classical music? Does artistic integrity exclude modifying the traditions? Or does the art of making the music matter sometimes require extra-musical effort? What are you willing to sacrifice for community?
