The Berlin Philharmonic "Digital Concert Hall"

The Berlin Philharmonic has opened their "Digital Concert Hall" to the public, and Bravo! to them. I mean, who would want to miss a concert in their physical hall (scroll through the photos on their home page, it will cycle past), it nice on the outside, much less the inside.

But it today's high-tech world, the BP has caught on to this world-wide audience thing. Using Hi-Def video and state of the art audio, they are able to extend their hall to us online. You can take the tour of the digital hall (here's a PDF brochure as well), and get a glimpse of what's available. Even their Flash demo is nice and slick...

There's a cost of course, you are buying a ticket to a concert. The average is 9.90 EUR, which is about $14.

Even if you wouldn't purchase a ticket online, this site is well worth a little of your time to see!
