ACHF Arts Access
Attendees will indicate a new appreciation and appetite for acoustic music. Attendees will indicate a positive response to the musical programs. People new to the museum will attend the concerts and come back to the museum at a later date to tour, volunteer, or become members. Artists will provide positive feedback on their participation with feelings of connection with the audiences and venue. This series will encourage more use of the Dinehart House for other musical events and projects by outside organizations. A survey tool will be distributed to attendees and artists, and an incentive given for their return at the end of the concerts. New members of the historical society will be tracked for a year to see if the concerts increased our membership. Musical programs at the Dinehart House will be tracked for a year to check increased usage. New patronage at the museum will be tracked for a year to see how many have attended the concerts.
1. The evaluations indicated a great appreciation for the music provided and great enjoyment of the setting with 100% indicating one or both as their favorite part of the events. 2. People with little or no experience with the Dinehart Holt House and Museum gained new knowledge and interest in the museums. Attendance at the Dinehart House almost doubled at its Open House during the Murray County Fair, two weeks after the concerts ended. 3. Artists provided positive feedback on their participation. Even though Dick and Ian Kimmel had to play in the 4-H auditorium, they felt the crowd was one of the most responsive they had played for. Jerry Ostensoe voiced great satisfaction with the venue and requested some of our photographs for his future marketing. Glenn Anderson and Gale Otto and their players had a great time interacting with the crowd because so many were friends and neighbors. 4. Almost half of the attendees in the evaluation responses were repeat attendees to the concerts. Total 126 evaluations returned.
