Video Games Saving the Symphony

The Wall Street Journal posted an article yesterday, titled "How Video Games are Saving the Symphony Orchestra". In the school of music we often hear about, talk about, and even directly witness the struggle to attract audiences, particularly younger audiences, to classical music concerts. The convergence of video game culture and the symphony hall is nothing new, but as argued in this article in the Wall street journal , it is becoming increasingly important for generating revenue for major symphony orchestras. Does this class, or can a class like ours, help prepare performers for cultural shifts in the concert hall?
