theatlantic:

Musicians Embrace the iPad, Leave Sheet Music at Home

Imagine you’re at a classical music performance. Everyone — audience and orchestra alike — is dressed for the occasion. As the lights dim, the crowd settles down. Onto the stage walks the evening’s soloist, carrying his iPad. He sits down, turns the iPad on, and begins to play.

A very cool concept — computer technology is constantly changing the way we listen to music, so it makes sense that it’s starting to change the way we perform it, too.
