Four Years Of Ticket Prices


Regular Adaptistration readers know that the issue of ticket price (especially the escalation of) is an ongoing topic. However, throughout the blog’s history, there was no way to conveniently track all of the useful discussion on the topic, until now.

With the advent of multiple category assignment here at TypePad, I’ve taken the time to go through each article at Adaptistration and weed out all those related to ticket prices and tag them with an appropriate category. They’ve also been cleaned up to make sure internal links function (although no guarantees on the status or availability of outbound links).

You can find direct links to all of the articles via the “category cloud” in the right hand navigation column or by the list of categories found at the bottom of the article archives. In the meantime, you can just click here.

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.
