Hi Zach, thanks for reading! I checked out your article on having the audience participate during a performance, and I’m happy to see that you got such a great response! I will also think about audience participation next time.
When my friend and I initially tried to put on this kind of show, we received resistance from classical music ‘purists’ (mostly his teacher, but also some of the other performers) who thought that this would take focus away from the music. Have you met such resistance when trying to implement the audience participation aspect at NWS, and if so, how did you address this?
