At Last, A Ray of Hope

At Last, A Ray of Hope | Audience Development for the Arts | Scoop.it

There is no doubt that the arts have faced, and continue to face, challenging times. Subscription numbers trend downward, putting increased pressure on each show to be a hit and sell lots of individual tickets. Total contributed income has been decreasing at many arts organizations, or at least has not grown fast enough to match increased costs and growing artistic ambitions. Words rarely associated with arts organizations in the past are becoming increasingly common: declaring bankruptcy, downsizing, and even going out of business.

Happy Hour! Pop-Up Opera hits Downtown

Happy Hour! Pop-Up Opera hits Downtown | Audience Development for the Arts | Scoop.it
When and Where: The Pittsburgh Opera Theater on Thursday surprised locals with guerrilla-style opera vignettes at Sonoma, Seviche, Sharp Edge Bistro and August Henry’s City Saloon, all Downtown. Love is in the air (and so is rejection): Happy Hour! is composed of nine vignettes, all set in the same bar. The original lyrics, written by masters’ students in the Dramatic Writing program at Carnegie Mellon University, were composed around the ideas of love and acceptance in the 21st century, from internet dating to karaoke catastrophes. The music was composed by Roger Zahab, who took on the project after a little nudging from Opera Theater's artistic director. “The idea of drawing people to look at everyday life through the lens of artistic experience was exciting to me.” Encore, encore!

Streaming music making CDs obsolete | Audience Development for the Arts | Scoop.it

For $10 a month, I get instant access to more than 20 million songs, and I've created a Library on Google Play for the music I like. Streaming music subscription services like Google All Access, Spotify and Beats Music (recently acquired by Apple) are doing to CDs what CDs did to vinyl LPs a generation ago (and what LPs did to brittle plastic records a generation before that).
