With the accelerating pace of technological change, the League posts a monthly digest of relevant news and information regarding changes, trends, and developments that may affect the digital media activities that orchestras use. For each monthly digest, the League’s digital media consultants, Michael Bronson and Joe Kluger, draw from a variety of websites and publications to provide excerpts or summaries of articles. (These do not necessarily represent the views of the League.) Among the topics this month: How the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra live-streamed a sold-out concert from its recent European tour, reaching a projected 100,000 listeners; Classical Music magazine guest editor Costa Pilavachi appraises the state of flux of the classical recording business and offers some back-to-basics advice; tech experts assess three apps and interfaces for music that are coming in the near future. As a service of the League, members with questions about the information in this digest or about other digital media topics—e.g., planning, strategy, and production—may contact Michael Bronson at firstname.lastname@example.org or Joe Kluger at jkluger@artsEmedia.com.
