Earlier, I reported that the Open Dream Ensemble was giving free performances around the region for schools that couldn’t afford to pay the $5/seat price of admission. Unfortunately, in the current economy, free is too expensive: because of soaring gas prices, some of these schools have had to cancel their field trips this fall, because they couldn’t afford to fill up the gas tanks in their buses.

So what do artists do when they can’t get the audience to come to their performance space?

Hit the classrooms, of course.
