Evidence of Program's Success

Annual concert attendance has grown steadily with results measured by increase in concert attendance year-over-year. The ASO has also seen rapid growth in social media awareness and digital market sharing of our upcoming programs and initiatives. Our audiences in our 2017-2018 season at The Fox Arts Center were close to capacity, therefore we've decided to increase the number of performances at The Fox Arts Center for our 2018-2019 season.
