2007 TAFTO PROMOTIONS

The following organizations are offering special Take A Friend To Orchestra promotions:

SYRACUSE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
Throughout April, concert-goers can purchase “buy one, get one” tickets to take a friend to any SSO concert in May, 2007. The May series is:

  • Beethoven Symphony No. 6, May 11-12, 2007 (Post-Standard Classics)
  • An American Tribute, May 18-19, 2007 (M&T Bank Pops)
  • Beethoven Lives Upstairs, May 19, 2007 (Central New York Community Foundation Family)
  • Serkin & the Sea, May 25-26, 2007 (Post-Standard Classics)
  • All programs, artists and dates, subject to change. The SSO regrets that it is unable to offer refunds.

    As a sign of gratitude for their on-going support, current SSO subscribers who already have tickets to these concerts will receive complimentary ticket vouchers to a May concert of their choice upon request (limit one pair per household). Seating is based on availability.

    About Drew McManus

    "I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

    I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

    In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

    For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
