Classical & Jazz TV

Classical and jazz music is less common on network and cable TV as it us to be. Denying performing arts broadcast coverage is a grave error of judgment by the TV industry. In the U.S. there are 54 million adults who listen to classical music, 85 million who listen to jazz, 59 million who attend live theater, 40 million who attend live dance performances, and 103 million who attend art events, according to the National Endowment of the Arts. These performing arts enthusiasts tend to have higher education and higher household income, providing advertisers with lucrative markets.

To fill this gap, there are available several streaming sources that provide viewers with classical, opera, dance, and jazz performances. The world’s greatest artists and most prestigious performing arts companies and venues are available.
