A Classical Music Concert Intended For Sleepers?

The idea would seem absurd to most Classical Music afficionados that I know. I have to admit that I find it a little bit odd, too. That idea is a series of concerts in Japan where sleeping is not frowned upon, but rather, it is encouraged! These concerts are taking place at Hakuju Hall in Tokyo, a venue designed specifically for relaxation and to harness the healing power of music. The hall even features reclining seats, but only in the back to keep the noise from snorers down! 10 concerts are held per year as part of the Reclining Concert Series. The full article can be found here.

I think it's a great idea. If it gets people to come in and be exposed to music they might not otherwise hear, great. I like to listen to music while I fall asleep or when I've had a stressful day and want to relax. If I could do that AND support my local orchestra, that would be terrific. :o)
