Classical music holds an interesting role in modern life. To most people, it may seems a little too posh to be into classical music, or just boring, putting it simply. Classical music doesn't have the same flair or personality that more traditionally popular music does—and for good reason. The combination of all the different instruments, the fact that to see it live is much different from a regular concert, and the old nature of the genre definitely puts a lot of people off—myself included.
But that does not mean it is unimportant. People seem to forget how much classical music they actually hear on a weekly or daily basis. All of the music (for the most part) in movies all come from orchestras and composers. The famous movie soundtracks, such as the Imperial March in Star Wars, or the Indiana Jones theme, are classical pieces. Now, nobody is really going to listen to that type of music as much as more contemporary styles (except for the true, hardcore fans, but those are Fraiser-esque upper class people typically that don't do relatable things), yet everyone can appreciate a swelling score in a tense moment of a movie, or a quiet violin during a sweet moment. It can convey non-verbal emotion like not many other genres, and really proves there's more to music than electronics and guitars.
