What is Shop the Symphony?
Composition. Practice. Performance. Artistry. Craft. Emotion. The Perfect Moment
Your organization labors to create Perfect Moments for your patrons and audience to experience... the opportunity to hear a work performed live with artistry, expertise and dedication.
This is the Moment that all of your efforts lead to.
In my career at Neiman Marcus and at the Houston Symphony Store, I witnessed Moments happen as well. I’ve seen how music is experienced as pure joy and touches so many, inspiring patrons to purchase gifts for themselves, family, friends and co-workers. The gift is their way of sharing their experience.
When a well-designed, well-crafted gift is received, that is a Moment as well. These are Moments that complement the performance, extend the experience, convey and capture the Moment from inside the hall. Created by designers, craftsmen and artisans inspired by the very same music and experiences, these gifts convey a tactile, physical Moment. Just as your patrons desire the content that you produce, that desire translates to a hunger for beautiful music-related gifts. For years, I have been scouring the marketplace to create an experience that will truly mirror the content and discipline that your organization represents.
The vision of Shop the Symphony is to give your patrons the opportunity to capture that Moment while also creating an additional revenue opportunity. This is accomplished by utilizing existing resources: a website, an audience, programming, community outreach, marketing and events.
