DSO launching archive of webcasts for on-demand viewing
Have you ever been at a Detroit Symphony Orchestra concert and been so enthralled by the performance that you wished you could see and hear it again?
Now you can.
Today, the DSO is launching what it says is the country’s only on-demand archive of orchestral video performances. Intended as a perk for donors contributing at least $50 to the DSO’s annual fund, the Replay archive will allow listeners to watch performances drawn from the orchestra’s free, weekly high-definition webcasts dating back three years.
The Replay initiative adds another layer to what is already the most extensive program of digital broadcasting by an American orchestra. More than 750,000 viewers worldwide have seen the orchestra’s free webcasts since they began in 2011 in the aftermath of the six-month musicians strike.
In addition, more than 100,000 students across the country have seen the DSO’s “Classroom Edition” broadcasts that began last year.
