Classical music's new lease of Second Life

The philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau once praised music for its ability to transport the listener to another world. It's a point many others have echoed, but few have actually tried to achieve. But now the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra have decided that, if they are to have a real-life future, then another world is where they are going to have to perform: a concert has been arranged to take place in a specially-designed concert hall in the world of Second Life, the internet-based virtual reality world where users can live the lives and buy the houses denied them in the first life.
