...I think classical music will change, maybe drastically. The economics of the way we do things now won't work in the future. The audience is shrinking. There's something rigid, stuffy, artificial in the old presumptions that classical music is the only serious music, that it has to be treated with reverence (and scholarship), and that old masterworks are more important than new compositions (which isn't what many people say out loud, but is clearly how the business works).I'm adding Greg's blog to the list of links in the sidebar.
Also, Butts in the Seats is another useful blog on performance arts management.
I'll take this moment to shine the spotlight on Lisa's blog Iron Tongue of Midnight. This is another outstanding and personal-yet-highly-informed perspective on the present-day workings of the classical music world. Lisa, I'm honored that you are helping me with this project!
