Live Note

Live Note is an App for Android and Iphone that enhances the users experience while seeing a performance with the Philadelphia Orchestra. The app was created by a member of the Philadelphia Orchestra, and itself is free but they heavily encourage you to get a subscription and become a friend of the Philadelphia Orchestra through the app which I think is a very powerful marketing tool. Live Note is particularly useful because of its ability to expand the audience of a performance. While in the past, some may have believed that classical music was something only the wealthy could enjoy or understand entirely, Live Note changes the game. The app follows the live performance and has a score that you can follow along with to see what the musicians are looking at, a history of the piece being performed, as well as in some occasions, a live feed of a principle player in the orchestra performing. Using this app can help the orchestra continue to increase ticket sales as well as help reach an audience never touched by this music previously. This app has helped increase revenue for the Philadelphia Orchestra by widening their scope of audience. Since the birth of LiveNote, ticket sales for the Philadelphia Orchestra have increased by 33% Although the app is newer, and the design is lack luster, the app works flawlessly.

  Other orchestras and even museums should use this tool during their performances/ in their galleries. This tool helps an organization increase their revenue as well as customer experience and interaction. Making an app that functions and looks the part can be at times expensive, so this would be a tool used by a more established organization as opposed to a start up of some kind. Wolf Trap has used an app that is similar to this one in operations (Note Tracker), but pales in the sense of functionality and practicality.
