Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The short-range measurable outcome NSMA hopes to achieve is to treat our blues-loving audience to a long-awaited treat: a night of what the Philadelphia City paper calls Ruthie Foster's irresistible blaze from which it's impossible to look away, even close the eyes, for one second. The long-range measurable goal is advancing our mission and furthering our reputation as the leading presenter of culturally and artistically diverse music in Cook county and one of few such presenters in our region. Audience feedback and demographic information will be drawn from surveys handed out and collected after the concert. Artistic quality will be evaluated through survey analysis, reviews in the local press, and verbal and written feedback from local and visiting audience members. The success of the project will also be determined through an analysis of financial data, based on number of tickets sold.
