Ooh, a party where everyone stands around wearing nametags. I can't believe I missed it.
OK, sorry, more seriously Donald is quite right here:
Donald wrote:MSO and other classical music organizations are top-heavy with older folks. It's always been a knock on these organizations, but they finally recognized they needed to do something about it. They figured out that they have been able to draw some younger professionals to one or two concerts a year, and figure others may follow, or even start taking a greater interest. It makes sense to at least try this approach.
Yeah. This is a terrible, awful, no-good time to be a classical music organization like MSO. Which is too bad, because the quality of live classical music has never been higher. Like all such groups, MSO desperately needs to get the word out. If this kind of thing works for them, great.
I love MSO. If long-distance teleportation were an option, I would be back in Madison every month for their concerts.
