The Classical Music category attracted 72,647 attendances and generated $2.09 million in revenue which is quite sizeable given its high proportion of unpaid tickets (22.1%). This was achieved through a high average ticket price ($36.86) which compensated for the high number of unpaid tickets.
The Classical Music category staged 200 performances. With average attendance of 363 per performance and average revenue of $10,426 per performance, it is one of the higher yielding categories.
Three Australia Council Key Organisations, namely Canberra Symphony Orchestra, Darwin Symphony Orchestra and The Song Company staged very successful performances and contributed a substantial amount of revenue for this category. Other Key Organisations producing Classical Music include the Australian String Quartet and Gondwana Choirs.
