The challenge of this project was to understand the needs of the current and future audience and to innovate the classical performance formats of the Mahler Chamber Orchestra. My colleagues Hedwig Schaefer, Benjamin Pape and I were designing an Innovation-Workshop and Audience Survey for the MCO´s performance night at RADIALSYSTEM V – Space for Arts and Ideas in Berlin. The MCO is a professional touring chamber orchestra and was founded by Claudio Abbado and former members of the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra in 1997.
