Massapequa Philharmonic, SCW Cultural Arts At Emanuel Present “Beethoven’s Fifth From The InsideOut”

The Massapequa Philharmonic under the direction of its music director David Bernard will bring Long Island’s first fully immersive InsideOut Concert to Temple Emanuel on March 10, 2024 at 3PM. Every member of the audience will have a seat within the orchestra, where they will explore the music and the music making from the vantage point of the musicians, while being escorted through Beethoven’s masterpiece by Maestro David Bernard.

In his 6th season as Music Director of the Massapequa Philharmonic, Maestro Bernard is a pioneer and innovator in the design, development and production of immersive classical music events, and is inventor of US Patent No. 11,673,070 entitled “Methods and Systems for Arranging Seats for Audience Members and Musicians.”

“Exploring Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony in an InsideOut Format is an exhilarating experience—not only for the audience, but for me and the musicians as well,” says Bernard. “It is inspiring for everyone in the orchestra to see the impact of this brilliant work on each member of the audience unfold in real time, “ says Bernard.

Maestro Bernard’s InsideOut Concerts events have captivated audiences and increased enthusiasm for symphonic music for both first-time listeners and seasoned concert-goers alike.

Attendee comments include:
“Absolutely and positively one of the best experiences ever! This is a smart investment in the future growth of symphony audiences.”
“We’ve become musical ‘converts’ solely due to your InsideOut concert experience and thoroughly anticipate the next one.”
“I have been to many concerts at the world’s great concert halls, but none were close to as memorable as the InsideOut concert I experienced on Sunday. I have never in my life engaged with music as holistically or dramatically–as ecstatically–as I did while sitting on stage among those musicians. Indeed, I have never been so fully enveloped like that in such magnificent sound. It was a thrill of a lifetime!”
