Take A Friend To The Orchestra, or TAFTO, is a multi-week long program that features more than a dozen critics, bloggers, musicians, classical music enthusiasts, and administrators writing about how average patrons throughout the country can invite friends who don’t regularly participate in live music events to a performance in your area.
Essentially, TAFTO is an opportunity for the people who care the most about classical music to participate in a proactive way; and no, you’re not simply going to get hit up to write a check or make a donation to your local orchestra.
There’s now a Take A Friend To The Orchestra microsite that features all of the TAFTO contributions and much, much more. It’s super easy to navigate and n addition to being organized by year, content is now categorized by author type (musician, manager, patron, blogger, journalist, etc.) and if the content contains audio and/or video.
