ASK THE PROS | Conductor George Marriner Maull – ‘7 Things Presenters Can Do to Make Classical Music More Accessible’
“What are some things concert presenters can do to make classical music more accessible?”
We threw the question to conductor George Marriner Maull…
1. Get creative and go outside your own comfort zone. Your audience is new to classical music – you need to be a different you to accommodate new listeners. In designing the format, challenge yourself to create an interesting script that combines performance with audience interaction. You need to give them questions to answer that can only be answered by their listening to the next musical excerpt played. It should also be fun; be tastefully humorous!
