As most of you are, I am a huge classical music fan. But probably not shared with most here, Im more than just a fan, Im a classical music geek. I consume classical music content like star wars fans eat up merchandise. My room is decorated with tons of music paraphernalia, I wear classical music based t-shirts, and I enjoy TV shows, movie, or video games that have any thing to do with classical music. Even all the tattoos I have and plan to get are inspired by classical music. I have come to accept my dorkiness when it comes to classical music and I am pretty sure I will be the professor that wears nerdy classical music ties to work.
I began really thinking about my classical music nerdiness and about classical music in pop culture. I was also thinking about all of my favorite classical music moments in popular culture; from the various shows I like that are centered around classical music or have some classical music element where in it to just random tid bits that are out there. This got me thinking what are some of y'alls favorite classical music moments in popular culture.
It can be, as mentioned, anything from TV, movies, commercials, video games, or even in merchandise such as board games, clothing, flash mobs, phone apps, etc.
Basically anything outside of just concerts and recordings. Tell us a little bit about it and why you like it or why its worth mentioning.
Ill be popping in every so often to mention some of my favorite things as I remember them.
