When the Orchestra travelled to New York City in early March, I knew many of our fans were wishing—just like I was—that they could go along. When WQXR in New York announced they would broadcast our performance live, I decided to host a listening party on Facebook. It didn’t reach a massive number of people, but the people who did participate were very excited.
It got quite lively, with lots of visitor posts, pictures from Twitter, questions about encores, etc. It was a great test to see how enthused our fans are for this sort of engagement. See the page on Facebook.
