Long Overdue

A hearty welcome to Anne Midgette, who finally joined the classical music blogosphere yesterday. What a relief to see her say that whatever she has said about the death of classical music, music itself is thriving and it's some of our institutions that are in trouble.

Lisa, you haven't done one of these in a while so, here it goes. :-)

File under: How Not To Do It

Today, the Cleveland Orchestra announced their 2009-10 season. Very nice, incredible orchestra whatever you think of the current music director, very curious to see what they're doing in Severence Hall that would merit a trip.

Problem: they don't list the concerts under the calendar or diary sections, so what they'll be doing outside of what was announced in the press release is still a mystery.

Is it such a radical concept for orchestras (Cleveland's not the only one that does this) to have the calendar and all the performers/pieces/dates ready to go when they announce their seasons? It's not like these things aren't planned years in advance.

Very true, Henry.

Lisa: she emailed you? I feel unpopular.

Lisa Hirsch said...

Sorry, Empricus!

Henry, I think I'll put up a posting about that.
