New trends for audience development in classical music

 

Working in the classical music business I noticed that audience development question became one of the most crucial topics in the industry. Ageing audience as well as lack of interest for traditional concert forms from younger people indicated that concrete actions should be made. Webinar provides the knowledge of potential of the audience development from the classical music product perspective and my perspective as a music concert hall director and manager.
