Nothing like red eye flights with multi-hour layovers on my way back to the orchestral equivalent of Area-51 to get caught up on some blogging. One topic I wanted to point out is a new series of blog posts by everyone’s favorite Dutchman, Marc van Bree. A few days back, Marc posted the first article in a series dedicated to orchestras and new media and since this is a topic near and dear to my own heart, I’m thrilled to see someone in Marc’s position (Chicago Symphony PR department) examining this topic. You can find all of the articles in Marc’s series here.

1 thought on “The Dutch Perspective Of Orchestras And New Media”
Thanks for the shout-out!
Like I said in the introduction post, I’m no expert by any means. I’m just personally very intrigued about the possibilities in new media and this was a good way for me to examine the different topics more closely.
I’d appreciate any feedback, particularly any case studies or examples from other orchestras or classical music organizations.
Of course, Drew, your “How To Connect With New Media” was a great series that proved valuable in my own examination.
And “everyone’s favorite Dutchman” just made me think of a thousand-and-one Goldmember references… Shmoke and a pancake?
