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: why classical purists should start taking video game music seriously; jazz and classical label ECM is releasing entire catalogue to streaming outlets; Facebook is dropping its fundraising fees for nonprofits; Pinchas Zukerman says embracing technology can help save classical music. 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.
