Disrupting Classical Music: Audience of the Future
Classical music: constantly fighting for relevance with modern audiences. Directly tackling this issue, the Audience of the Future program obtains the holy grail of orchestras - attracting young people and engaging them deeply with orchestral music. This session explores how and why engaging students across multiple art forms and disciplines not only builds their creativity and critical thinking skills, but also offers new insights into how the classical music industry must adapt to survive.
