Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Short range measurable outcomes: Expand audience for the participating choirs. Develop singers' performance skills by giving them a consistent experience of performing in different types of venues. Build community awareness of the Duluth choral music scene. Long range measurable outcomes: People will value choral music as an expression of what is good about their community. Young people will see choral music as a positive way to express themselves. The primary goal of this project is to expose the Duluth area to the great choral groups that exist in their own community. In turn, our choral participants can share a meaningful collaborative performance opportunity. Specifically for our youth chorus singers, they will benefit from performing on the same stage with adult choral singers of all levels. Tools to measure outcomes: Number of festival attendees. Reflect on and discuss performance experiences with singers. Measure social media response (Facebook likes, new webpage visits). Consistent or increased Number of participants in local choral organizations. Consistent or increased audience numbers during seasonal choral performances.
