Classical Music is Dead*

Coming Soon: ‘Classical Music is Dead*’ Tee Version 2.0

Posted in fashion, we like by The Nouveau Classical Project on 01/30/2010

People are aware of all sorts of important causes and precious endangered species going extinct…but what about the survival of classical music? Or at least its relevance to people outside classical music-dom. Like philately (which used to be one of my favorite hobbies before the miniature works of art went adhesive), classical music has become one of those hobbies that contain a handful of middle-aged aficionados, who I’m sure want to see classical music (ahem, concert music) live beyond their lifetime.

So let’s make it happen! Our new and improved ‘Classical Music is Dead*’ tee, exclusively designed for us by Gigi Burris, will help get classical music in people’s heads and get you loads of attention. It sure did for Rachel, read about her shirt shenanigans here. These limited-edition gems are rare, so you’d better nab one fast and get ready to be stalked by paparazzi! Shirts arrive February 5…more info and pics coming soon.

Publicity for $1?! Your name in lights (ok, more like in ink on quality paper) at our next event! Details here.

    Interesting point about relevance “outside music-dom.” It’s all about finding a hook to get the young people in. I thought this post by an music teacher (who has also started an online music community), addresses this issue. He sort of connects the autonomy and creativity made possible by the Internet with the potential for innovative composition. If people who are already into the Web could be engaged in classical music, there’s a chance… If you’re curious, check his post [http://bit.ly/d9L8pd]. Or try to sell the tee-shirt on his site. ;) Musiccomm.com
