The Colorado Symphony makes the Rocky Mountain region an exciting place to live, work and raise families. Established in 1989 as the successor to the Denver Symphony, the Colorado Symphony is the region’s only full-time professional orchestra.
Boettcher Concert Hall
Boettcher Concert Hall is located in the Denver Performing Arts Complex. Situated on a four-block, 12-acre site, the complex is the largest arts center in the world, featuring 10 performance spaces connected by an 80-foot-tall glass roof. With 80 percent of the 2,634 seats within 65 feet of the stage, Boettcher Concert Hall is the nation’s first symphony hall in the round designed to place the audience close to the stage for a unique experience.
WHY IS ADVERTISING IN COLORADO’S PERFORMING ARTS PUBLICATIONS SO EFFECTIVE?
As a marketer, promoter and business person, you have to constantly make tough advertising decisions. Colorado’s Performing Arts Publications are here to help. We deliver proven advertising that reaches not only thousands of Front Range viewers, but a targeted audience of affluent purchasers.
TRUST - Despite the rise of digital advertising, print continues to deliver effective and efficient promotions for savvy marketers. Studies suggest that readers trust print more than any other medium. According to a recent study, 82 percent of U.S. internet users trust print ads when making a purchase decision, more than any other advertising avenue (1). And our arts publications take this one step further, every book is hand delivered, ensuring your message gets seen.
CAPTIVATING - With Colorado’s Performing Arts publications you know what to expect. Every show presents a new captive audience that peruse every magazine before, during and after every show. Print is an enjoyable experience. It’s tactile. It’s immersive. It requires 21 percent less cognitive effort to process than reading on a screen (2). In fact, in our fast-paced world, print is as much luxurious as it is indulgent.
DEFINED - A healthy ROI requires the ability to target readers effectively. Print ads create a lasting impression on people who appreciate the performing arts. With attendance on the rise, arts publications provide a sound investment. The Colorado Business Committee for the Arts reports that between 2015 and 2017 there has been an 8.5 percent increase in attendance at arts venues (3).
