Toward livelier orchestra programs: Pick a theme

Mon, Jul 7, 2014|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , , |Comments Off on Toward livelier orchestra programs: Pick a theme

From Scott Cantrell in Dallas Morning News: The old overture-concerto-symphony model, with no real relationship among the pieces, gives no identity to a concert, no marketing hook. It’s just another ‘one from column A, one from column B’ mishmash. Slapping alliterative labels for single pieces on concerts — ‘Marvelous Mozart,’ ‘Bombastic Beethoven,’ ‘Ravishing Ravel’ — is pretty lame. · Go to Toward livelier orchestra programs: Pick a theme →

Wooing a new generation of museum patrons

Wed, Mar 26, 2014|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , |Comments Off on Wooing a new generation of museum patrons

From NY Times: Several hundred millennials mingled under the soaring atrium of the Guggenheim Museum on Fifth Avenue one recent frigid February night. Weaving around them were black-clad servers bearing silver trays piled high with doughnuts, while a pixieish D.J. spun Daft Punk remixes.

The occasion was the museum’s annual Young Collectors Party, and the increasingly tipsy crowd thronged in a space usually filled with visitors eager to see the 73-year-old institution’s priceless artworks. But on this night, the galleries displaying an exhibition of Italian Futurism were mostly cordoned off. Instead, youthful, glamorous and moneyed New Yorkers were the main attraction. · Go to Wooing a new generation of museum patrons →

Bringing New York City dance into the limelight

Mon, Jun 3, 2013|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , , |Comments Off on Bringing New York City dance into the limelight

From NY Times: Some of the best-remembered moments in entertainment are dances set in New York City, in shows and movies like “Guys and Dolls,” “On the Town,” “West Side Story,” “42nd Street” and “The Band Wagon.” Now comes a campaign that urges New Yorkers to support dance as an art form. The campaign, scheduled to get under way this week, is being sponsored by Dance/NYC, a nonprofit organization that was spun off in January from the national organization Dance/USA. The campaign, which is being created internally at Dance/NYC, carries the theme “New Yorkers for dance.” · Go to Bringing New York City dance into the limelight →

You are not your target audience

Mon, Sep 19, 2011|Filed in: Videos|Topics: , , |Comments Off on You are not your target audience

From Forty: One of our most common tendencies as people is believing that our own thoughts and opinions are true or the best option. It’s human nature, and a lot of times your gut will lead you in the right direction. However, this bias can hinder our ability to make educated decisions, cause us to overlook important facts, and encourage […]

Subscriptions dead? Maybe not.

Mon, Sep 19, 2011|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , |Comments Off on Subscriptions dead? Maybe not.

From Chad Bauman: In early 2008, Arena Stage along with a few other LORT theaters, began to test subscription alternatives in focus groups. In doing so, I was absolutely certain that the results would show at least one, if not several, attractive alternatives to subscriptions. I was wrong. Our work indicated that each option we put forth was less attractive to target single ticket buyers, multi-buyers and current subscribers than what we currently had. I was so surprised that we conducted a second series of focus groups with similar results. Amazed and confused, after a few months, I concluded our market research indicated that the subscription model wasn't outdated, but that our execution was flawed. · Go to Subscriptions dead?
