The San Francisco Symphony launched a new social networking service Wednesday to bring together enthusiasts of classical music from across the globe.
“The San Francisco Symphony social network offers music lovers a way of communicating with each other, and with us, using a tool that’s fun and natural for the way people meet and share information now,” symphony executive director Brent Assink said in a statement.
The social network site allows musicians and music fans to meet, post profile information, add and view videos, links and photos, hear music and audio and start groups and discussion topics.
Fans can add comments, post and share events, and organize their own events and music around a passion for classical music and the San Francisco Symphony.
Additionally, the Web site offers backstage blog posts from musicians, staff and conductors, exclusive video and audio content and interviews and live chats with musicians and guest artists.
The Orchestra maintains an active community of Facebook fans, a YouTube channel and a Twitter profile.
The social network is free and open to anyone over 13 years old.
The Web site can be accessed at community.sfsymphony.org.
