Sunday Baroque Conversations: Andrew Ousley

For as long as I can remember, naysayers have been predicting the “death of classical music.” Audiences are aging, and ticket sales are often a struggle for classical music concerts, and some people are concerned that the art form will “die” as a result. Andrew Ousley leaned into that fear when he established his concert series, THE DEATH OF CLASSICAL, in 2015. He even holds the concerts in venues such as crypts, catacombs, and cemeteries. As a result, audiences are alive and well for THE DEATH OF CLASSICAL – attracting younger people and classical music newbies. Suzanne spoke with Andrew Ousley – an entrepreneur, writer, photographer, and public relations innovator – about his mission to give new life to classical music.
