Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The final concert of the 28th season will celebrate the beauty and mystery of the Aurora Borealis through music and art. The concert will include three versions of Northern Lights, by Harry Somers, Ola Gjeilo and Erik Esenvolds. Other musical highlights will include “Dark Night of the Soul"ť by Gjeilo with string quartet, piano and soprano soloist and Edward Elgar's “Lux Aeterna"ť based on his Enigma Variations. Selection of Sacred Heart Music Center as a venue for this concert uses the fabulous acoustics to assist in portraying the beauty of the Northern Lights. Photographic displays by local artists capturing the beauty and wonder of the Aurora Borealis will set the mood for the concert. The Arrowhead Chorale will evaluate the setting's effect on the music, the response of the audience to the art exhibit and concert combined, and the singer and performer satisfaction with the concert repertoire and performance. The Board will hold a meeting within the month following the concert to focus on the finances of the event, performance satisfaction, the collaboration with area artists, and the feedback from an audience survey and a singer survey. All information gathered will be used to assist in future planning, collaborations with other area organizations and individuals, and continued relationships with area instrumentalists and soloists.
