It’s Friday! Yesterday as you know, we had an #auddev chat. During the chat, one of our chatters, Becky Peters a.k.a. @bpeters99 tweeted a song title that stuck in my head: Love the One You’re With by Crosby, Stills and Nash. Of course this was in reference to loving your current audience.
It had me thinking what other songs could be good for arts audience development. Here’s a few I came up with:
Thank You – Natalie Merchant – Thank your supporters often!
Being for the Benefit of Mr.Kite – The Beatles – Tell your story effectively so your audience can picture the show and get interested.
True Colors – Cyndi Lauper – Be yourself and show your true colors to attract the right audience.
Give Me One Reason – Tracy Chapman – Give your audience reasons to stay!
I Gotta Feeling – The Black Eyed Peas – Make your event special in every way so your audience will have a feeling that tonight’s gonna be a good night!
Do you have a song for arts audience development? Feel free to reply. Happy weekend to you!
Cheers to happy and loyal audiences,
