DOI: DOI: 10.1177/1749975514541862.Description: 20 p. : digital, fitxer PDF (786,92 Kb). In: Cultural sociology, Published online: July 23, 2014, p. 1-18 Published online: July 23, 2014, p. 1-18Summary: This paper considers the key findings of a year-long collaborative research project focusing on the audience of the London Symphony Orchestra and their introduction of a new mobile telephone (‘app’) ticketing system. A mixed-method approach was employed, utilizing focus groups and questionnaires with over 80 participants, to research a sample group of university students. This research develops our understanding of classical music audiences, and highlights the continued individualistic, middle-class, and exclusionary culture of classical music attendance and patterns of behaviours. The research also suggests that a mobile phone app does prove a useful mechanism for selling discounted tickets, but shows little indication of being a useful means of expanding this audience beyond its traditional demographic.
