Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The long-range measurable outcome North Shore Music Association wishes to achieve with this event is building our reputation as our area's best source of high-quality music, and as one of the main reasons Cook County has become such a vital arts destination. We also hope to keep increasing our profile throughout our region, state, and the Midwest, as a host of excellent musical events. In these ways, we will be increasingly able to best serve our population with great musical programming. The short-term measurable outcome North Shore Music Association wishes to achieve is providing our audience with an amazing chamber music experience, performed by globally acclaimed artists. Feedback will be collected via written survey passed out to each audience member. Artistic quality will be assessed through survey analysis, reviews in the local press, and verbal and written feedback from audience members. We will also evaluate the success of this project through an analysis of financial data, based on number of tickets sold.
