Audience Development Webinar – Participatory Classical Music

I wanted to make sure all of my readers were invited.  You are invited!

There are many reasons why I wanted to start the webinar series with “Participatory Classical Music.”  Here are some of my thoughts:

  • The classical music industry has been the same for over a century.  There have been slight changes here and there, but as a whole, we haven’t strayed from the familiar formats.
  • We do need to breathe new life into classical music since the next generations are not as fond of these familiar formats.
  • I wanted to present a discussion with ideas, examples and solutions.  We have been talking in circles for decades, bemoaning our shrinking audiences.
  • There are little tweaks we can apply to the classical music format that will not turn the art form on its head.
  • I wanted to visit the “new” possibilities in a safe atmosphere.
  • John Steinmetz, our guest speaker, has some big thoughts on this topic.  I have enjoyed chatting with him, and I know others will like his refreshing, open yet thoughtful style too.
  • Classical music is my main background.  This is the art form that started my love for the arts in general.  I want to be a part of the solution, and I would love others to join in!

Again, please do consider yourself invited, and I hope to see you there!

Friday, January 20th  – Noon ET/11CT/10 MT/9 PT
Participatory Classical Music
How can we build classical music experiences that will also build our audiences?  Participatory performances, designing events with your audience members, using music as a social force, nurturing your audiences, and increasing demand will all be discussed.

Audience Development for ADS

We interrupt this blog to bring you the following message:

This posting is a follow up to the open letter I posted last week.  As mentioned, I am considering the new direction for ADS.  In order for ADS to be able to expand services with the ability to bring audience development education to more people, ADS is in need of more resources as well.

As mentioned before, ADS is a for profit consulting firm.  Right now, times are tough, and most of the services ADS is providing have been free or minimally charged to help our artists and nonprofit agencies as well.

If you like what ADS is providing – audience development blogs, audience development discussions, grants and other resource links, ARTicles Daily on Twitter, etc., please consider providing a tiny donation to keep ADS running and expanding.

Also, spreading the word that ADS has services that can help educate artists and arts organizations about audience development, will help us tremendously.

In the near future, ADS will be providing more opportunities for online/regional education through webinars, group projects, and regional workshops.

Thank you for your continued support.  I appreciate and am thankful for all the participation through feedback, comments, suggestions, and friendship.

Now back to your “regularly scheduled” blog.

Cheers to happy and loyal audiences,

Shoshana
