This is a first, or so we’re told.
The first time anyone has livestreamed a concert on a Facebook page.
The pioneers are Chicago Symphony Orchestra who will stream the Verdi Requiem on Thursday at 7.30pm local, Riccardo Muti conducting.
It’s the great composer’s 200th birthday.
Among international orgs who have signed onto the stream are:
