Happy New Year! We're opening 2020 with a request from one of our incredibly talented musicians!
Many of you have had the good fortune to hear soprano Julianna Emanski sing with us as a soloist and chorister over the past five years. In addition to being a phenomenal vocalist, she is also a successful music entrepreneur and researcher. The final project for her doctoral degree at the University of North Texas is a survey and analysis of the desires, preferences, and attitudes of early music ensemble audiences in Texas.
She has prepared a video, which you can watch here, explaining more about what the survey entails.
Please click here to access the survey. Note that it will only be active from January 2 until January 11.
Ms. Emanski is the only person who will have access to your anonymized responses; ABO will only be able to see the final report that will consist of the conclusions she is able to draw from audience responses from across Texas. Ensembles in Austin, Houston, Dallas, and Ft. Worth are participating in this study.
While many studies of classical music audiences exist, this one is unique in that it focuses upon only audiences of early music ensembles, and only Texas-based ensembles. If you could take just a moment from your day to complete the survey, we would all be most appreciative. The information we learn from her report will help us to become a stronger ensemble that is better aligned to your wants and needs as an audience member.
Thank you for your assistance, and we hope to see you in February for Masterless Mistresses!
