Classic music having a place and being relevant are two different things. You think it SHOULD be a part of it but it isn't currently in grained in everyone's music culture. If it was, then you could make the claim that it is relevant today outside of music students.

Just curious, but have you ever watched a movie, DJ? IMO, soundtracks are without a doubt what is driving both the creation of new classical music and the continuation of classics.

According to some schools of thought, it's because when it comes to classical music, most academic institutions have an ancient rigorous program that aims at fitting in a box (including monstrous dedication to orchestras that do nothing original) so there's not a lot of innovation in classical music in academic settings.

I'm not sure about that, since so many music professors are also the ones contributing quite a bit to the modern music world.

You mean the modern classical music world? (as that is the scope of the discussion).

Professors are such a tiny chunk of population compared to students though, and getting a professor position is highly competitive so it's not surprising they have musical merit. My assumption, if this article is based in valid observations, is that if you look at other forms of music, more students are out there doing musical projects already whereas classical students are getting positions in orchestras.

Yes, I do love me some soundtracks but that doesn't deter from the fact that classical music's popularity isn't up to par to be considered relevant. The question isn't does it still exist today. Of course it does, but the relevance is linked to how popular it is in the context of other genres. You won't hear any classical music getting play on a top 40 radio station.

Classical music will all ways be relevant, it may not be the main stream music all the time but that's how the flow of music moves. Its a complex art that takes active listening to get the most out of it. When people can handle it on a regular basis then it will become relevant to them.

I don't think it will always be relevant, because nothing as ephemeral as a mode of music lasts. Nothing.
