The Belton Orchestra, which typically performs in a large concert hall, plans to increase the orchestra’s profits by adding music from successful films and arrangements of well-known pop songs to its concert programs. The orchestra’s president has stated that “we need to bring in a larger, younger, and more diverse audience if we want to be around for the next fifty years.” By targeting people who don’t typically go to concert halls, the orchestra hopes to get these individuals interested in attending even more traditional concerts.

Which of the following would, if true, most strengthen the likelihood that the president's plan will achieve its goal?

A. There has been a nationwide decrease in attendance at symphony orchestra concerts over the last year.
B. The average number of increased concertgoers who attend the Belton Orchestra’s concerts will not be offset by a decrease in attendance by those who prefer the more traditional concerts.
C. About half of the number of younger people who attend most orchestra concerts are themselves musicians.
D. The amount of disposable income available to younger and more diverse individuals who live within 20 miles of the concert hall that the Belton Orchestra uses has increased in recent years.
E. A majority of the members of the Belton Orchestra have expressed enthusiasm for playing the newer works that the president has suggested.
