"Brooklyn Model"

Restructuring Classical Music

Michael Drapkin, PhD Candidate, University of Leiden

https://restructuringclassicalmusic.com

The Texas Chamber Symphony is a proud member of the Brooklyn Model. This dissertation will come up with models and methodologies that will preserve the availability of great classics while developing and proving in performance solutions to these problems, including addressing the Baumol Syndrome and Rightsizing, The Brooklyn Model and Extreme Scoring. These will address many of the economic, ethical, mainstream and compositional issues facing classical music.
