Detroit Symphony Orchestra offers free webcasts of concerts
The Detroit Symphony Orchestra is offering enhanced webcasts of its concerts this season.
A "Live from Orchestra Hall" webcast will be held tomorrow night January 28, beginning at 7:50 p.m. Participants have to register before watching.
More from the Associated Press:
The Detroit Symphony Orchestra is introducing a new webcast player designed to make online concert viewers feel as if they're in Orchestra Hall.
More than 30,000 people from over 40 countries are expected to view Saturday's high-definition "Live from Orchestra Hall" webcast.
The DSO says it's the only U.S. orchestra to offer a free series of webcasts.
The Symphony says the webcast player "mimics the actual interior" of Orchestra Hall. Dimming controls allow the virtual viewer to adjust lighting.
Saturday's webcast will feature a performance of Mozart's Horn Concerto No. 4.
The piece will be highlighted on a live repertoire tracker, and live program notes will post below the viewing window with trivia about the piece and the artists.
Here's a promotional video from the DSO about it's webcasts:
