Classical music concerts - concert hall or streaming?

At the end of the Covid-19 pandemic, we conducted an online survey of customers of the Philharmonie Berlin and numerous other Berlin classical music enthusiasts in early 2022 to accompany the "new start culture" into a new concert season from a scientific perspective. Using a complex weighting procedure, we merged a sample of Philharmonie Berlin subscribers and Digital Concert Hall customers with a sample of Berlin classical concertgoers obtained through a commercial online panel provider. The resulting dataset of n = 1933 cases allows us to make representative comparative statements about the subjective experience of face-to-face concerts, cinema concert broadcasts, and online live streams of classical concerts by Berlin classical audiences in 2022, which we can also use to explain the reach and intensity of use of these different cultural offerings while controlling for sociodemographic variables of origin. In addition, in this project, realized jointly with the Philharmonie Berlin as a public-private partnership, we also collected data on the media repertoires of Berlin's classical music audience and the typical practices of attending concerts at the Philharmonie and using the Digital Concert Hall. In addition, we investigated the question of whether and how personal preferences for streaming or concert attendance of classical music have changed as a result of the pandemic experience. On the one hand, the project results enrich basic research in music and communication science on the use of classical music concerts and media; on the other hand, they help our project partner to optimize and structure its various offers and services more precisely with regard to the specific expectations and wishes of the audience.
