For the cover, I chose an interesting article I found in an existing magazine, Listen: Life with Classical Music, Fall 2011, with the title, American Orchestras: State of the Union. It was about orchestras coming up with creative solutions to disseminate music to new audiences and go beyond the concert hall. One of their major projects was to actually travel to places where classical music performances were scarce, in order to (quote Bob Anderson from the article) “bring music to people rather than expect them to come to you.” Taking that concept, I titled the head article Orchestras Hit the Road: Bringing Music to the People, and designed an image of an orchestra on a road trip, playing music inside a bus! As I was not able to hire a real orchestra or a charter bus to photograph, I had to photoshop many different images together in order to carry out the idea. It was challenging, but turned out fairly well—after all, it’s not everyday you see a rumbling orchestra on a bus.
