concert ticketing sales by members
Date: October 22, 2013
I direct a modest size community choir of thirty-five in Ontario and as you can imagine, ticket sales for any of our three season concerts is a challenge. We are discussing the option of requiring the membership to take a block of tickets for sale and returning only cash but not unsold tickets for each concert. What has been the collective wisdom on this approach? I know many go this route, but we have never chosen to require sale of a specific number of concert tickets by members. Do you find that this discourages membership or boosts participation and concert attendance? Many thanks for any and all feedback that can be provided.
