Apparently, the mobile device revolution has started changing musical performances too. The Brussels Philharmonic is officially the world's first orchestra to ditch its music score sheets in favor of a tablet - the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, in this case. As you might imagine, doing so brings a plethora of benefits. Distributing the score sheets before each concert is now a lot easier as a digital copy is sent to each of the 100+ musicians, instead of being handed out individually by hand. And since the device comes with plenty of storage capacity, it can store all the music a musician will ever need, available at the tap of a button. It is also worth mentioning that since the tablet is equipped with a fancy stylus – the S Pen, performers can are free to take down notes if needed.
Now, one might think that buying a 100 Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablets is a bit too great of an expense, but in the long run, the investment should be worth it. The device will not only improve the efficiency of the orchestra, but will help it cut down on paper expenses by as much as 25,000 euro. All made possible thanks to a 600-gram slate one can carry around at any time. Pretty neat, don't you think?
