Tweeting on the lawn

July 23, 2009
Annoyed by text-reading patrons at concerts? Well, Washington's National Symphony Orchestra is now actively encouraging it.

For an upcoming concert at Wolf Trap, it will be Tweeting live program notes to audience members on the lawn during a performance of Beethoven's "Pastoral." Read more about it here.

Obviously, this is a bid to attract a younger audience. But does such a move ultimately hurt or help? Would you subscribe to such a feed if the ISO were doing it at Conner Prairie? And, if not, would you be annoyed by those around you doing it?

Here's another news piece about a National Symphony Orchestra--not the U.S. version, but the one in Iraq. Seems like a story destined for a Heartland Film Festival documentary.
