About 10% more young people attended concerts this year than the year before. Unique households attending concerts also hit a record high in the fiscal year ending 2018.

About 61.4% of SPCO’s income came from donations, with individual contributions reaching an all-time high. SPCO musicians are members of Local 30-73 (St. Paul-Minneapolis, MN).
