I have seen the future of Classical Concert-Going and it is called INSIDE OUT! Two years ago, Maestro David Bernard began an experiment in classical concert-going. He had a bold new idea to intimately integrate the audience directly into the concert by literally seating them within the orchestra among the musicians -the idea being to create a totally immersive symphonic experience. Two years and more than a dozen performances later, the experiment has been a success on every level. Thousands of spellbound audience members can attest to the visceral power of live music performed by a 60-piece orchestra on all sides of you.
