This week the San Francisco Symphony hosted Blogger Night, inviting Bay Area web-based commentators to experience the power of Awesome Music live at Davies Hall, whether for the first or hundredth time. The results of the experiment can be seen here. Such familiar bløgòsphëric personalities as Patricia Mitchell, SF Mike, and M. C_ participated. There's an especially interesting response from Emergence Media, who writes: "The atmosphere was far more casual than I thought and had none of the Old World pretentiousness that I feared." The "classical music is stuffy" cliché is generated largely by TV commercials and movies; it has little or no relationship to reality, unless you're at an opening-night gala or coming down with a cold.
