The first page of Eugene Symphony's program magazine asks audiences to connect with one another, and sets the tone for a social and interactive experience:
"Take a moment right now and look around you – find someone you don’t know and say hello. What are they looking forward to the most about the concert? Share your favorite composer or piece of music.
Did you do it? Good. Congratulations, you just helped create a more welcoming environment for great music! At the same time, you ensured that you and someone else will have an even stronger connection to the music through your collective experience."
Attendees at Eugene Symphony's annual gala were inspired to create connections with each other and the artists through a bingo card that encouraged meeting the artistic director, taking selfies, and more.
