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: Idagio, a classical music streaming service launched in 2015, has raised €8 million ($9.9 million) from investors; Apple may be phasing out music downloads by 2019 in favor of Apple Music, the company’s streaming platform; and the Philadelphia Orchestra rolls out the LiveNote mobile app in concerts at the Kimmel Center. 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 email@example.com or Joe Kluger at jkluger@artsEmedia.com.
