Why aren't Ticket Sales Enough to Sustain Symphony Cost?

About 1/4 of our revenue comes from ticket sales, typical of symphonies nationwide. We rely on community support, augmented with grants, in order to keep prices within the range of most families.

Production costs for one concert range from $25,000 to $35,000, depending on guest artists, programming, orchestration, and venue. A one-night event simply can’t recover that cost without pricing the tickets out of the range of most families. Overhead costs, such as staff salaries, licensing fees, advertising, insurance, office space, venue rentals, and all the other costs related to running a business, contribute to our annual budget of about $263,000.
