Musicians Up In Arms Again Over Computerized Orchestra

from the except... dept

There was a big fuss last year when some Broadway musicals looked into replacing their human orchestra with a “virtual orchestra.” Musicians went on strike, and shows went off the stage for a while. Now, that same response is happening again for an off-Broadway musical that is trying to use a virtual orchestra as well. Of course, the difference here, though, is that the musical is using the exact same number of musicians whether it’s using the virtual orchestra or not.
