Real Time Classical Cybercasts

October 4, 2009 — orchestra

The Philadelphia Orchestra has re-launched its global concert cybercast initiative this year, featuring five full-length Philadelphia Orchestra concerts beamed to campus in HD and Dolby digital sound. If you're too busy to make it to the Kimmel Center to hear the storied Orchestra, then take some time to join us in Bossone's Mitchell Auditorium. The seven camera broadcast affords you all the sound and visual effects of being there without having to dress up or pay for tickets. The concert series is free of charge thanks to sponsorship by the College of Engineering and the MET Lab, the Pennoni Honors College and the Westphal College of Media Arts & Design.

The premier concert will feature conductor Charles Dutoit and pianist Yefim Bronfman performing Bartók The Miraculous Mandarin (complete) and Brahms Piano Concerto No.2. The cybercast is Sunday, October 4th at 5 PM. Youngmoo Kim, Assistant Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering at the College of Engineering and students in the MET (music, entertainment and technology) Lab will work behind the scenes to ensure top quality sound and picture for broadcast.
