Tweet Seats:

Tweet Seats refer to seats in which tweeting is encouraged during a performance by audience members. Carnegie Mellon School of Music is launching this new pilot project to encourage a subsection of our audience to engage in an online discussion about the performance they are experiencing. We ask that Tweet Seat participants sit in the second balcony of Carnegie Music Hall with their phones silenced and dim back-light to lowest setting. Additionally, participants who are not able to join us at the hall can watch the webcast (Channel 2) of the performance.

Utilizing the hashtag #CMUHobson, participants will engage in an online conversation with School of Music faculty member Lance LaDuke who will be leading the discussion from @CMUMusic. Feel free to tweet reactions to the performance or ask questions. You can follow or join the conversation here.


Mr. Hobson is a musician of tremendous versatility who has earned an international reputation as a pianist, conductor, and educator. During the last several years, engagements have included appearances at Alice Tully Hall and at New York's Mostly Mozart Festival. He has performed recitals in the U.S., England, and Italy. Mr. Hobson performed the Piano Concerto of Henry Holden Huss at Carnegie Hall with the American Composers Orchestra and the Concerto for Piano of Clara Schumann on Great Performers at Lincoln Center.
