Mid-Winter Managers Meeting Plenary (2010)
Sunday, January 31, 2010
@ InterContinental The Barclay New York
Two national studies, the National Endowment for the Arts 2008 Survey of Public Participation in the Arts (PDF) and the League’s Audience Demographic Research Review (PDF), now offer statistically reliable national demographic information about audience participation. The findings raise both serious concerns and new opportunities for orchestras. This year’s Mid-Winter plenary focused on the critical nature of these findings and offer insight into how it affects your orchestra.
Presentations by Sunil Iyengar (NEA) and Atul Kanagat (League), were followed by a discussion with Jesse Rosen, League president and CEO, and Paul DiMaggio, A. Barton Hepburn Professor of Sociology and Public Affairs, Princeton University, reflecting on the key findings. Peer-to-peer roundtable discussions closed out the plenary.
