Analysis of Performance
Lincoln Center participation of 25,198 was above the Q3 target of 20,000. Year-to-date participation is about 25,000 participants over the cumulative target. This was driven primarily due to more events actually booking into the Lincoln Center during the quarter. Participation varies throughout the year depending on the number and type of events that are booked, and we expect that annual results will be at or above the annual target.

City Organization Impact on Performance
High - Cultural Services directly influences this metric by developing and offering a diverse and wide-ranging variety of programs that appeal to the community. Participation numbers are also influenced through marketing and outreach. Cultural Services also directly influences the amount of programs offered at the Lincoln Center by creating programs that interest the community on a variety of levels.
The Lincoln Center is unable to provide relevant benchmark data due to the variances between performing arts centers in theater size, number of theaters, venue amenities, markets served, and programming goals. In addition, reliable statistical data is not readily available due to the competitive and often corporate nature of the performing arts field.
