As someone who does not often attend, I think it's a great idea to include the concerts with modern content like Star Wars, Pixar, etc. We once took all our kids and drove to Cleveland to hear the Orchestra perform the score from The Lord of the Rings. I would also be enthusiastic to attend concerts featuring popular young musicians/multi-instrumentalists such as Chris Thile, Ben Solee, Andrew Bird, The Punch Brothers. They would certainly draw a whole other world of listeners to the performances. Exploring ways to get young people to consider attending performances by an orchestra seems to be very important if the traditional symphony is to survive.
