1. The Berlin
Philharmonic has announced its new Digital
concert Hall, by which anyone with access to the internet (high speed)
can "attend" live concerts at the Philharmonic each and evey
performance is to be broadcast using state-of-the-art technology. "It is
a wonderful feeling to be able to welcome far more people to the Philharmonie"
says chief conductor sir Simon Rattle. Tickets are 149 euros for the season, 9.90
2. From the Rocky Mountain Fest audio show: The Colorado
Audio Society helps to sponsor our annual audio show each October, Rocky Mountain
Audio Fest (www.audiofest.net).
A few weeks ago, we were all saddened with news of the untimely passing of CAS
member and RMAF director, Al Stiefel. Al's wife and RMAF co-director, Marjorie
Baumert, has now taken full charge of running RMAF and has asked that I contact
fellow audio clubs and societies to aid in the selection of a manufacturer deserving
of the Al Stiefel Legacy Room at this year's Audio Fest. This gracious offer of
an exhibit room at no cost reflects the interest and devotion that Al held in
promoting the audio industry and all its participants. Marjorie is requesting
nominations for a worthy manufacturer who may not have the means to exhibit this
year or perhaps an individual or organization that has a great product that would
greatly benefit by achieving a foothold through an RMAF appearance.
If you or your members would like to provide a nomination,
please e-mail Marjorie at firstname.lastname@example.org
with your nomination and include a short description of the owner or organization
with contact information along with your reason for the nomination. These entries
will then be reviewed and researched to arrive at a selection.
I appreciate your time and assistance in this matter and hope
that we can meet you at Audio Fest in October.
