Back in January, the Los Angeles Philharmonic debuted its new LA Phil LIVE cinecast event. The reviews were largely positive (you can read mine here) and the orchestra is set to stream onto silver screens across North America once again this coming Sunday, March 13th.
Instead of merely attending and reviewing the second round of this event, this time I am organizing a collective endeavor. KillingClassicalMusic.com will be hosting a community review, with input coming in from all over. There will be live tweeting and an opportunity for you to share your thoughts and be a part of the final review that will be posted here.
If you’re a classical music writer/blogger, or if you just think this new event is something intriguing, I encourage you to join in. To participate, all you have to do is attend the event this Sunday and share your thoughts. There are a number of things to focus on, so if you feel particularly well suited for one element, it would be excellent if you focused on that. Key topics include:
- Sound Quality
- The Hosts (there’s a whole slate of actors who will be involved this time)
- The in-theater audience
- Performance Quality
Most interesting of all is how “live” you think this event really is.
Additionally, we will be using the twitter hashtag #LAPhilLIVE for live tweeting and collecting impressions. After the event, all tweets with the #LAPhilLIVE hashtag will be compiled, sorted, and included in the community review.
So, what are you waiting for? Go find out what theaters near you are carrying the show and get your tickets. Then tweet your thoughts and write as much or as little of a review as you want. Submit your thoughts to KillingClassicalMusic.com with the “Submit an article” section, and contact me if you have any questions. Everyone who participates will get all sorts of credit and links, etc. Please include with your submission or in your tweets the city in which you saw the event and your blog and/or twitter feed for crediting purposes.
It will be exciting to see a collective impression of the LA Phil LIVE program, and a nice alternative to the necessarily myopic perspective of the traditional reviewer.blog comments powered by Disqus
