    What role do you think classical music will play in the 21st century?

    It will continue to be enjoyed by those who like it.  It may be a minority of people who appreciate it, but there will always be that minority.  I also think that as people age, they tend to enjoy classical music more.  Fashions in music come and go, but classical music remains.

    I think it will continue to broaden and be incorporated more into pop culture as it has these last few years. It can't be so neatly classified as it once was into specific time periods like Baroque, Romantic, etc.
    We hear it everywhere, in tv commercials, dramas, movies. With the way music is produced now, familiar chords are included in pop songs, or specific instruments are added to give a classical touch.

    I'm pretty sure it will continue to be enjoyed, and hopefully by more and more people of all ages and backgrounds. I wonder how many listeners really know the background of Carmina Burana when they hear commericals with O Fortuna! The words could have been written today in this century and yet were written in the early 13th century.

    Classical music is inspiring and to hear it and see it performed live is exhilarating.

    It is the grammar of all musical forms.

    Classical music can be counted on to always be there for us. It has many young and established admirers and performers who are accomplished, energetic, enthusiastic, and increasing in numbers. It's benefiting from the growing encouragement to cultural diversity, particularly in the Americas, what with strong Iberian and Latin influences and input. Classical guitar seems like a particularly exciting field for 21st century classical music listeners and performers.
