ROUTINIZATION A bureaucracy not only rationalizes operations, it also routinizes them. That is, once efficient and economical methods are developed, they are adhered to on a day-to-day basis. Table II-3 reveals the extent to which the Philadelphia -37- Orchestra has succeeded in doing this for almost a quarter of a century. This random sampling of six winter seasons over a twenty-three year period reveals: only three concerts were played in Philadelphia at places other than the Academy of Music; the Friday-Saturday-Monday subscription formula continued without interruption until 196869; all concerts in each season have been standard symphonic concerts at regular prices with the exception of three pension concerts, five Children's Concerts, and three Youth Concerts (which were increased to six by 1968-69 when the three pension concerts had been dropped); the large majority of out of town concerts have taken place in the same cities ( New York, Washington, and Baltimore) for the same audiences (they are sold on an annual renewable subscription basis).

Since the presentation of a new or unfamiliar major work requires, even in the case of a highly-skilled professional organization, a considerable amount of rehearsal time, the production of this type of work is relatively rare over the course of each season. Some Orchestra weekly schedules may not follow the above one, but because of the ever-present combinations of travel requirements, recording sessions, Pension Fund concerts, Children's Concerts, and a full concert schedule, the harried aspect of a minimum of rehearsals for concert preparation rarely changes.
