Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

North Shore Music Association's goal with this project is to serve our community with the highest quality classical music available--an important component of our seasonal offerings. Presenting a world-renowned concert pianist will expand North Shore Music Association's repertoire, since our organization has only presented one classical piano performance in the past 31 years. It will also enrich our reputation locally, regionally, and beyond as a key presenter of the highest quality eclectic music in Northern Minnesota. The outcome we wish to achieve is at least 100 adult and 10 youth concert attendees, and 4 to 5 master class participants. We would like to see a 100% survey response of very satisfied" and multiple requests for more. North Shore Music Association will measure outcome via analysis of written audience surveys and master class student questionnaires; reviews in local and regional press and radio; verbal and written feedback from audience members; analysis of financial data based on number of tickets sold; and number of students attending the master class."
