Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Matinee Musicale's goals for this project are to provide a high quality concert for our audience and an educational master class for area high school, college and university music students. Our short-term, measureable outcomes for this project are: 1) To receive favorable comments about the Tempest Trio’s concert; 2) To attract a concert audience of at least 200 individuals; and 3) To have good participation in the two-hour master class for high school, university and college music students, and to receive favorable comments about the class. A long-term measureable outcome for Matinee Musicale is to increase the size of our audience over time. METHODS TO MEASURE SHORT-TERM OUTCOMES: Measure attendance numbers and ticket sales for the concert. Measure attendance at the master class. Distribute a survey to audience members. Distribute a survey to master class students. Evaluate our audience demographics (Senior, Adult, Student). Gather comments and reactions from audience members to ascertain if the concert met their expectations. METHODS TO MEASURE LONG-TERM OUTCOMES: Track concert and outreach attendance and compare year-over-year.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We had 152 at the concert which was very good considering the University of Minnesota-Duluth chamber orchestra was touring out of town. We were very pleased to have 30 very enthusiastic students in the audience. Also, new to Matinee Musicale concert was a student film crew from the Fond Du Lac Tribal Community College. They were working on a project for their video class. They are hoping to attend our next concert. The master class had 16 in attendance (9 students, 7 adults).
