I do apologize — I forgot to post this back in April so some concerts have already happened, but you can still catch a whole lot more!
BOSTON SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA ANNOUNCES FREE ONLINE CONCERT STREAMING OF BSO, BOSTON POPS, AND TANGLEWOOD PROGRAMS AT BSO.ORG/MEDIACENTER, BEGINNING WITH FINAL THREE BSO PROGRAMS OF 2011-12 SEASON
BSO LAUNCHES NEW STREAMING PLATFORM TOMORROW, TUESDAY, APRIL 24, WITH PROGRAM OF BEETHOVEN’S SYMPHONY NO. 1 AND MENDELSSOHN’S INCIDENTAL MUSIC TO A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM, FEATURING VOCALISTS LAYLA CLAIRE AND KATE LINDSEY, WITH CLAIRE BLOOM AS NARRATOR, UNDER THE DIRECTION OF BERNARD HAITINK
Tomorrow, Tuesday, April 24, the Boston Symphony Orchestra will begin offering free online streaming of current BSO, Boston Pops, and Tanglewood concerts on the orchestra’s website at www.bso.org/mediacenter. In partnership with 99.5 Classical New England, a service of WGBH, the 128 kbps streams will be provided by WGBH’s live concert broadcasts and made available through the BSO Media Center the Monday or Tuesday after the program’s premiere at Symphony Hall (details about Tanglewood concert streaming will be announced at a later date). These concert streams will be available on bso.org/mediacenter for up to a year after the original performance, surpassing the usual industry standard of just a few weeks.
