ACHF Arts Access
The purpose of this project is to celebrate the lives, music, and cultural contributions of Aaron Copland and Leonard Bernstein and bring their music to a southwest Minnesota audience that would likely not have access to such performances. Measurable goals include: 1) Attracting an audience of at least 200 people to the Finale Concert; 2) Attracting audiences of at least 25 individuals to the Panel Discussion and 100 individuals to the Chamber Music Concert; 3) Attracting at least 100 total audience members who have never attended or rarely attend Southwest Minnesota State University Music events; and 4) Sharing the music of Aaron Copland and Leonard Bernstein with at least 100 total audience members who have never heard a live performance of their music. Total audience numbers will be tracked by ushers, program counts, and ticket sales for the Finale Concert. A survey will be included in the programs from each of the events and audience members will be encouraged to share their thoughts on the festival. The survey includes questions that gauge audience members' previous concert attendance (project goal 3) and their experience with the music of Copland and Bernstein (project goal 4).
