Cleveland Institute video-streams live concert—on internet and mobile apps

Posted on: December 7, 2011

The Cleveland Institute of Music live-streamed the second half of its sold-out November 30 concert at Mixon Hall, a solo recital featuring Russian-born pianist and CIM student Daniil Trifonov. The Institute video-streamed the concert both to its own website at and via its own free CIM Android mobile app—the first live video concert, it says, presented by an institute of higher education to a global audience across all Smartphone platforms. For the live stream, the Cleveland Institute collaborated with the classical-music digital-media company InstantEncore. Fans who wished to watch the live concert on mobile devices first downloaded the free CIM or Apple app and then received a push notification directing them to the live video stream when the event was about to begin.
