What does the Future hold for Classical Music?
Harpsichordist and musicologist, Dr Christopher D. Lewis explores what the future might hold for classical music in his Tedx Talk. How has the Internet shaped how audiences discover and engage with the genre of classical music? How can classical music continue to devise ways of attracting a wider range of more diverse audiences, when the industry is facing so much competition and so many difficulties? What do we as audiences and consumers of music need to do, in order to help attract younger audiences to classical concerts and in what ways can we be truly innovative in our approaches to concert programming? Focusing on the positives, Dr Lewis will explore what progressive action is being taken by artists and classical music labels alike, to ensure that the genre remains relevant, and continues to thrive and survive in the twenty-first century - and beyond…!
