Programming the Contemporary: Poll Results
While I would hate to fall into the habit of collecting information and then dismissing it out of hand (reportedly a habit of my late mother-in-law, who would cite information from The New York Times and then add, “But what do they know?”), I cannot quite believe that these poll responses actually represent the views of a random cross-section of the classical music audience. The nascent statistician in me is forced to admit that my polling group is probably not a representative sampling.
However, if we take these results at face value, artistic directors in orchestras across America should rejoice at the unexpected good news that more than 60% of audiences are actually hungry for more contemporary programming. Too bad that ticket sales don’t support this claim.
