Fossil fuel combustion, industrial processes, deforestation, transportation and even Classical Music. Wait, what? Like everything, classical music has a bigger carbon footprint than you probably thought.
One of my favourite things to do is take a friend who is new to classical music to see an orchestra concert. Not only do they get to see a little bit of my world, but they also ask some great questions!
Orchestral concerts are a lot of fun, but for those who have never been, going to see a show can raise a lot of questions. After taking some classical music newbies to see the symphony, a few common queries emerged.
Researching the music saw was like diving into a parallel universe. Not only did I discover a whole sub-culture of musical saw enthusiasts, I learned about an entirely different instrument classification system.
