Classic music began its roots in European history in 500 CE. From this date to the present, there were 5 distinct eras known as the Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, and Romantic. These unique compositions required a multi-instrumented ensemble that included strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion using highly trained musicians that created the complex sounds. Superstar composers, the likes of Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, and Vivaldi, left plenty of works to perform. The orchestras are led by well-dressed men whose backs are to the audience and conducts signals to the musicians, conveying a change in tempo, timbre, and timing. These venues typically fill 500 to 2000 seat auditoriums and, in general, attract the more affluent members of society. With over 11 million millionaires in the United States, efforts are underway to entice more of these people to philharmonic concerts. The marketing experts have decided to go after all 5 senses in delivering this new music experience. The goal is to fill up 15 to 80 thousand seat stadiums and haul in some heavy, hard cash. The maestros now wear electric space suits, complete with thousands of LED lights to enhance the sights and sounds generated. The orchestra is positioned on a rotating turntable, so ALL seats are forward facing at multiple intervals. The theater is equipped with fans to propel flavors and smells amongst the audience. Cinnamon, chocolate, caramel, and mint are favorites but nutmeg, basil, saffron and clove rate high on the list. For the sense of feeling, hundreds of massage therapists are released into the crowd to randomly give 30 second neck rubs. With the audience rocking to the WILLIAM TELL OVERTURE, the smell and taste of dates permeating the air, sexy masseuses running around with the strobing maestro being hydraulically lifted off the stage, the hologram suddenly explodes into a dazzling burst of color and sound. The performance and the audience climax together.
