Symphony infographics

How the Toronto Symphony Orchestra uses graphic design to guide its audiences though its music

I love the clarity of the infographics, and think they’re a great way to map a piece of music. However, I wonder if they would change my listening experience as much as I think they would. When I go to the BSO, I usually browse the program before the concert starts, or at intermission — never during the actual concert, because riffling through pages feels rude to me. These notes feel more like a sports announcer or tour guide — informative, but meant to be experienced simultaneously with a performance instead of something to reflect on before or afterwards.
