- Music After takes place September 11th, 2011 at Joyce SoHo from morning until after midnight. Feel free to give all your money to this great event – through PayPal or check at musicafter.com or by donating at indiegogo.com.
- Jennifer Choi is all that and a bag of awesome. NewMusicBox profiles her career as an artist willing to take on anything and everything.
- How do you feel about program notes? The Locrian Chamber Players make it a point to not give them to you.
- MTT and the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra are embracing new media by opening a portal to content that will soon be available on the web. Are they getting on the bandwagon late?
- The Louisville Orchestra is failing in many, many ways. Will they really hire non-union musicians?
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.
