White House could help classical music by having fun with it

via White House could help classical music by having fun with it.

More innovative ideas for classical music: shorter concerts, crossover genres, popular classical names.

I suggest that the White House dispense with classical music convention and start hosting shorter concerts: half an hour, 40 minutes, 20 minutes. A more informal format might mean that you could give several concerts a year -- perhaps in tandem with state visits or other official functions -- rather than a single longer one that bears the weight of representation on its shoulders.
