Jean Shirk, Public Relations Manager for the San Francisco Symphony, gave a great presentation on how she spearheaded the Symphony’s ongoing effort to develop and craft digital and social media strategy and communication, to help attract and build new audiences for orchestral music. In 2009, she and her co-workers launched the first social network built by any major orchestra (http://community.sfsymphony.org). She launched and guides the voice and content creation for the Symphony's Twitter feed (http://twitter.com/sfsymphony), which has been cited as an industry-leading example by nonprofit social media consultants and other marketing and PR pros, as well as the SF Symphony's Facebook fan page (www.facebook.com/sfsymphony). Shirk also manages public relations and publicity efforts for the SF Symphony's concerts, events, and initiatives.
