This week’s panel:
This week’s topics include:
- Meerenai Shim is here!
- She recently used Kickstarter to fund a commission of Daniel Felsenfeld.
- The New York Philharmonic is seeing the financial benefits of developing personal relationships between musicians and the audience.
- NewMusicBox’s Colin Holter is personally offended by Muso’s sexy classical musician headshots.
- The Vienna Philharmonic is taking a bit of flak (again) for its lack of diversity.
- Music publishers take umbrage with the International Music Score Library Project giving away scores for free.
- Oklahoma is considering following Kansas down the road of cutting all state arts funding. (Thanks to Andrew Williams for tipping us off to this story.)
- John Luther Adams’s Inuksuit made quite a splash at the Armory. Inuksuit and NMB’s Chris Kallmyer made us think about other works that use space as a musical parameter.
- The Detroit Symphony’s administration threatened to hire replacement musicians…or did they? Adaptistration’s readers have opinions.
- #accompanisthaiku was the big classical music hashtag of the week. We offer our interpretations with help from Ty Forquer. (Haiku by Scott Blasco, Matthew Guerrieri, Alex Ross, Sheila Heady, and Michael Monroe)
We sincerely apologize to Sheila Heady for attributing her “missing measures” haiku to Erica Sipes in the video.
