Maestro starts up Facebook-like network for the super-richmain
It’s what you always wanted, right?
Instead of having to talk to jobbing musicians who can barely afford an off-season family holiday in a caravan, you need a social network where you can communicate with people in your own income bracket. Yacht shall speak trivia to yacht, as it were.
Good business model?
A former conductor has just launched it.
His name is James Touchi-Peters and he is described in his Wiki entry as principal conductor of the Minnesota Philharmonic Orchestra (sic) from 1991 to 2001.
His new site is called Netropolitan. It costs $9,000 to join and $3,000 a year to stay.
Hang on, you call that rich? Touchi, dear, you won’t get a maestro to answer the phone for less than$50k.
