What value are the customs we have developed for presenting music? How does our ritual help or harm the concert experience? How can we change the way we present concerts? Is it possible to alter such a thoroughly established ritual?
We agree that musicians have a responsibility to know certain details about the music we make, but how much can we reasonably expect of audiences? Should they know or care about the same trivia that musicians do? Tim wins arguments on the blog of a Pulitzer-winning composer (hint: not Dave).
How do we determine who our audience is? When we figure that out, how do we reach them? How can we grow our audience? Can we consider people outside our audience?
What’s the difference between good things and crappy things? How do we develop our senses of personal taste in art and music? Can we convince other people to value the same things in art that we do? Should we?
KA4GFDV2VSXS Topics include Meerenai Shim on patronage and commissioning Daniel Felsenfeld, New York Philharmonic new fundraising ideas, sexy marketing in classical music, diversity in the Vienna Philharmonic, the Detroit Symphony administration’s latest threats, and more.

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.
