You don’t have to be a brain surgeon to appreciate the genius of this idea: Simulcast the opening of music director Josep Caballé-Domenech’s first full season to the people gathered on the north lawns outside the hall. That’s video and sound pumped directly from the Pikes Peak Center stage to a 25-foot screen. And it was all for free — which is some smart marketing and laudable community building. I hope we see it again in the 2013-14 season.
