An orchestra is not a democracyAn orchestra is not a democracy
David Chan, concertmaster of the Met Orchestra: "I think the thing is – and I say this in the best possible sense – an orchestra is not a democracy. It’s a hierarchy; it’s set up that way. Ultimately, what the conductor says is what goes. But there are things that are not directly addressed by the conductor. Then, maybe the principal player has to make certain decisions. So when you have an orchestra full of great players and great people, everyone respects the structure and the process and it’s not really an issue."

Virtual reality put audience on stage
Audiences in South Australia's capital will wear virtual reality headsets this week to see and hear Adelaide Symphony Orchestra (ASO) performances, with a promise that music lovers will find it a richer concert experience. Goggles providing 360-degree visuals, accompanied by surround sound from headphones, will help the audience feel like they are on the stage amid the orchestral performers. The 3D visuals were filmed at a recent performance. ASO managing director Vincent Ciccarello said it would give regular fans a new way to enjoy a concert and hopefully appeal to a new generation of music lovers.
