Since the beginning of Covid-19 lockdowns, Washington Heights Chamber Orchestra music director and composer Chris Whittaker has helped to present dozens of online performances. In partnership with the Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance, he shares his technical savvy in a free seminar aimed at classical musicians, translating technical jargon into understandable music-speak. Concepts of volume, pitch, timbre, color, attack, along with the impression that music makes in a space are introduced with their equivalent technical terminologies. Ditto for video quality as expressed in frame rates, image resolution, etc. Techniques for audio/video capture are in the mix. Check here for his orchestra’s upcoming concerts.
