Concert Audiences in Spain

Stephanie Pitts undertook a research visit to Spain in July 2011, funded by a research mobility grant from the Santander Universities Network. She met with Dr Gabriel Rusinek (University of Madrid) and and Dr José Luis Aróstegui (University of Granada) for discussions about classical audiences in Spain, finding many similarities with the challenges facing UK arts providers in recruiting and retaining new and younger audiences for live music. We hope that this initial visit will lead to future international collaborations for the SPARC team.
