Tahlia Petrosian, Musician, Gewandhausorchester, Creative Producer, and director of KLASSIK underground and Resonate

The classical music world needs to re-think concert formats for online audiences. The development of innovative content as well as formats which are created specifically for presentation online are essential in order to ensure that classical music achieves a persuasive presence in the digital sphere.
"Resonate" is an innovative new online concert series which explores the intersection between music and visual art and experiments with real-time engagement with audiences and digital music education. It is an international collaboration that brings together musicians of the Gewandhaus Orchestra, the Leipzig International Art Programme, Moritzbastei Leipzig, Goethe-Institut Thailand, Symmetrica Creative Technology Solutions Canada and the Karajan-Institut.

This Avant Première Talk is held in the course of the Innovation Focus.
