Tweet Seats refer to seats in which tweeting is permitted during a performance by audience members. Carnegie Mellon School of Music is launching this new pilot project to encourage a subsection of our audience to engage in an online discussion about the performance they are experiencing. We ask that Tweet Seat participants sit in the second balcony of Carnegie Music Hall with their phones silenced and dim back-light to lowest setting. Additionally, participates who are not able to join us at the hall can watch the webcast (Channel 2) of the performance.
Utilizing the has tag #CMUHobson, participants will engage in an online conversation with School of Music faculty member Lance LaDuke who will be leading the discussion from @CMUMusic. Feel free to tweet reactions to the performance or ask questions. You can follow or join the conversation here.
