If you are part of promoting or producing classical music, please consider attending the upcoming ADS Webinar on Friday, March 15 at Noon ET.  We will be having a guest speaker, John Steinmetz (all around musician and music educator) discuss with us the challenges of making the affection clear.  Are we communicating to our audiences our love for the music?  Are our audiences clearly seeing and feeling the love that we have or are they seeing us occupied with other details of the business.  One of the first steps of attracting an audience is to share the love and show the love.  There are many ways we can make small changes to express ourselves in a enthusiastic and contagious fashion.  Here are the details with the registration link built in: http://www.buildmyaudience.com/ADSWebinars.pdf  I hope you will join in the fun!  Thank you in advance for sharing this with your circles!

March 15th - Noon ET

Classical Music: The challenges of making the affection clear
The conversation continues with, John Steinmetz, all around musician and educator. People get involved with music because they love it, yet too often the love is not clear enough. Musicians get distracted by technical perfection, administrators get distracted by all the responsibilities, and our way of writing and talking about music is often dry. How can we as an industry, as musicians, show and share the love again before the stuffiness of protocol buries us?

Story
Tagline
ADS gal working to build an audience for the arts!
Introduction
Shoshana Fanizza has been in arts management for over 13 years and has worked with non-profits for over 18 years. She has been involved in the arts all her life (horn, piano, Thespian, choir, voice and dance lessons, puppets, art and jazz history classes, film enthusiast) and has a background in marketing, sales, public relations, and customer service. Shoshana is the founder of Audience Development Specialists and is the main audience development consultant. After attending several arts marketing conferences, seminars and workshops, and being a part of the Boulder County Arts Alliance's 2006 Audience Development Initiative, it has come to her attention that several experts define audience development, but do not show how to apply the idea of audience development. She is now rolling up her sleeves to get in the trenches with artists and arts organizations to design solution based audience development plans and projects.

From 2005-2007, she was the Marketing and PR Director for the Boulder Philharmonic Orchestra. It was at this position that she began using audience development in addition to marketing. During her tenure, Shoshana built relationships and sold out Macky Auditorium's 2,000+ seat house, and house totals were increased by an average of 25-30% per concert. She developed their volunteer incentive program, expanded the marketing and publicity program, and was a primary team member in their fundraising, special events, and corporate sponsorship campaigns. Some of her other positions have included Founder of the Celebration Brass Quintet in Chicago and Marketing Director of the Chicago Brass Choir. She has been blessed to work with a variety of talented and quality artists/organizations: clients. After working with ADS, all of her clients have enjoyed more positive people energy surrounding their art. On average, Shoshana's audience development techniques have resulted in a growth rate of 30-50% for audience numbers and monetary support, and she has never left a meeting or phone session without at least one "great idea!"

Shoshana has a vision to help the arts by creating and implementing solutions that work. She is an idea person, and her enthusiasm is contagious! She desires to work with artists and arts organizations that are ready for the opportunities that audience development offers.
