The iTunes Festival has just concluded 30 Nights of Live Concerts and the iTunes Store is making the concerts available to watch FREE for a limited time. By clicking the pic above you can find out how to watch the concerts from your computer, mobile device, or your TV. There are many artists from a wide variety of genres represented.
Classical Music lovers will enjoy the concert by Andrea Bocelli as he sings “Amazing Grace”, “Time To Say Goodbye” and many more.
Fans of The X Factor will be happy to hear Rebecca Ferguson in concert with her Pop and R&B vocals.
World Music performer Laura Mvula, who studied classical composition is also included in this buffet of Free Concerts from the iTunes Festival.
My favorite new artist, Emeli Sande, has a fabulous concert as well! She performs her hit “Next To Me”, “Read All About It” and other tunes from her new album.
Can anybody say One Direction? Yes, they have a concert as well!
This body of concerts is a great opportunity for anyone who loves music, but it is especially great for music educators. Here are my top reasons for watching:
1. Discover new music –
Here in one place you have some of the hottest artists from a variety of genres which makes discovering new music that students will love easy to find. There are links on the concert page to each artist’s iTunes page where you can purchase the music you like.
3. See Clear Video for Performance Examples –
Music educators can use clips from the concerts to point out on stage performance techniques to students
4. Preview music on upcoming CDs –
We all hate to buy music and later discover we don’t like it. Eliminate this possibility by watching the FREE Concert before you buy!
