“Music has many purposes. A march takes us to war, a lullaby puts us to sleep. We celebrate, we console with each other…
When times are tough, it helps us back away from the specific problem of whatever’s plaguing us, and it gives us the moment to reflect and hopefully get to clarity.”
Since its founding in 1989, the New World Symphony has been a leader in exploring how technology can enhance the music and concert-going experience. In this conversation, Howard Herring of the New World Symphony, shares how the organization is responding to this moment by both fully realizing the orchestra’s digital possibilities while at the same time celebrating the in-person experience in traditional and new ways.
