Orchestra HD Simulcast
November 9, 2009 —
If you're too busy to make it to the Kimmel Center to hear the storied Philadelphia Orchestra, then join us in Bossone's Mitchell Auditorium for the second Philadelphia Orchestra global concert cybercast. This initiative features a full-length Philadelphia Orchestra concert beamed to campus in HD and digital sound. Conductor Christoph Eschenbach will lead the Orchestra in Mahler's Seventh Symphony on Saturday, November 21st at 8 PM. The seven camera broadcast affords you all the sound and sights of the best orchestra seats without having to leave the campus or pay for tickets.
The concert is free of charge thanks to sponsorship by the College of Engineering, the Pennoni Honors College, and the Westphal College and hosted by Music and Entertainment Technology Laboratory.
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.
