Concert audience encouraged by Conductor to use mobile phone cameras

After a performance of Ravel’s Bolero, the conductor Leonard Slatkin turned to address the audience, saying:

“For the first time I’d like to invite you to turn [on] your cellphones for a change, and cross the stage’s barrier by capturing this moment and posting your photos to your favourite social media channels.”

The orchestra then posted on Facebook:

Spokesperson for the orchestra Gabrielle Poshadlo told the LA Times that it’s not the first time concert phone photography has happened with the Detroit Symphony: “Pictures of its performances have been popping up online, so we know people are doing it. It’s never caused a disruption.”

The news comes after a wave of increased interactivity between conductors and audiences, most notably Michael Tilson Thomas throwing cough sweets into a crowd during a San Francisco Symphony Orchestra Concert.
