It’s Officially A Hit!

Since its launch earlier this month, Adaptistration’s new orchestra life cartoon, Who’s Minding The Score?, has been a unmitigated, smashing success! Traffic on publication days is through the roof (as in twice of the blog’s daily average traffic, which is great to begin with) and it stays strong through the remainder of the week. Thanks to Google Analytics, the metrics confirm that readers are coming in from all over the country and posting pointers at Facebook, Twitter, and email. The good news is if you haven’t discovered it yet, you have four strips to enjoy back to back…

Although that means you’ll have to wait until (more or less) each Sunday for new strips, I’m happy to say Dixon’s nearly three months of hand drawn goodness being finalized and it just keeps getting better. More character development, more plot twists, and more hilarity. If you haven’t done so already, sign up for the RSS feed or automatic email notices so you never miss out on new toons.

Even though there’s plenty of content waiting in the wings, it’s always good to hear ideas (so many great ones  have come in already) so feel free to send yours in.

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.
