Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The short-range measurable outcome we hope to achieve with this project is to serve an audience of at least 160 people of all ages in our community with a stellar evening of Afro-Cuban music, and the artistic and cultural learning experience that will go with it. The long-term outcome is to continue deepening and expanding our community's understanding of our place in the global community -- our vital connections to other cultures from across the globe, through musical performance and education. We will measure our short-range outcome via: immediate verbal feedback from audience members; written survey responses (a one-page survey handed to every audience member); event ticket sales; and post-event feedback by word-of-mouth, comments on our Facebook page, e-mail, and letters. We will measure our long-range outcome through ticket sales at future global music events, assessing membership numbers, and future community surveys and needs assessments.
