I was curious about how many people were thinking and talking about classical music online, so I did a search for the term using a new tool that I discovered on #Twitter. As of 8 o’clock (EDT) this morning, the Twitter hashtag #classicalmusic had made roughly 70,000 impressions, reaching more than 47,000 followers within the past 24 hours.

As I gear up for my master’s capstone project, I find myself increasingly interested in learning how people perceive and value classical music (especially within the symphony orchestra setting). I would love to hear your stories!
- Do you think Classical music is dead?
- What would you change about symphony orchestras, symphony concerts, and/or the symphony experience?
- Is there a classical music performance that was particularly memorable for that you would like to share?
