We can in fact carry symphonic standards on the personality, the joy and any common context that start to draw some new audience toward traditional concerts. When we can dial back the refinement of community and educational events and offer effective (key) information to listening, we step beyond dumbing down to warm up and smarten up the arts. Even for many veteran listeners, classical music is overdue for this makeover.
