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: Deutsche Grammophon and IDAGIO, a classical music streaming service, announce a partnership; a brief history of illicit recordings of live performances; Apple Music on track to overtake Spotify in paid U.S. subscribers; and the CD is dead/long live the CD. 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.
