Great Classical, Jazz

Stingray, a provider of streaming music services, says it will introduce two a la carte Amazon channels on June 22 enabling Prime subscribers to stream great musical performances.

Stingray Classica will offer a library featuring hundreds of operas, ballets, concerts and documentaries, as well as 50 premieres a year. There will be performances from Carnegie Hall, the Orchestre de Paris, the Lucerne Festival, the Teatro alla Scalla, the Bayerische Staatsoper, the San Francisco Opera and other renowned venues and festivals. This summer, Stingray Classica will feature Nelsons and the Boston Symphony Orchestra – The Inaugural Concert; Hollywood in Vienna – A Tribute to Randy Newman; Mozart – Die Entfürung aus dem Serail; and Rudolf Buchbinder in Salzburg, Verdi – Aida.

A second channel, Stingray DJAZZ, will “provides access to hundreds of jazz concerts filmed at the smallest underground venues and on the grandest stages.” Viewers can expect a wide range of artists and genres including bebop, jazz fusion, reggae, fund and blues. This summer’s schedule will include Louis ‘Satchmo’ Armstrong and His All Stars; Charles Bradley at the Cigale; China Moses: ‘Whatever’ at Jazz à Ramatuelle; Ella Fitzgerald in Brussels: The American Songbook; and Gregory Porter at the Blue Note Festival.

Each channel will cost Prime subscribers $6.99 a month.
