The Thrupiece Philharmonic Orchestra took a giant leap into the digital future today with the unveiling of its new on-line music portal: The Thrupiece Digital Concert Hall. The website which offers subscribers access to a treasure trove of legacy recordings will also feature live streaming of its 2017-18 concert season.
Under its dynamic new Chief Conductor and Music Director Irina Legova, the Orchestra has also founded its own CD label in collaboration with both Hornimint Records and the renowned German classical label Deutsche Grammophon. A spokesperson for the Orchestra - Lavinia de'Ath-Wish - disclosed that the move into live streaming was an initiative of Ms Legova's who believes the Orchestra needs to reach out to a younger and more tech-savvy audience. "The average age of subscribers to Addinsell Threadbone' s last season as Music Director was 83", she explained, "and we are hoping to lower that a fraction. For this reason we have also decided to remove all induction loops as well as wheelchair ramps from the newly planned Thrupiece Philharmonic Hall in the Great Heaving Arts Complex so as to discourage the elderly. I mean who wants to sit in a concert surrounded by people who can't even hear themselves cough and pee themselves when they do?" . Ms de'Ath-Wish is about to become unemployed.
To commemorate the new music streaming service, the Orchestra is offering it's latest release - Kondrashin's Symphony No 4 at a special price.
