Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

1) Present a well-executed outreach with an exciting and engaging performance by the quartet at Lincoln Park Middle School that encourages participation and generates positive feedback from students, staff and parents and potentially drives some of them to the concert. 2) Bring together at least 50 residents of Edgewood in Hermantown along with family and staff to participate in the Harlem Quartet performance event and draw three – five seniors to the concert as well. 3) Attract an audience of 200 people to Harlem Quartet’s concert at Mitchell Auditorium. 4) Raise visibility and awareness of Matinee Musicale’s efforts in presenting concerts and outreach performances for all of Duluth. Concert attendance will be measured through box office audits of tickets sold and total number in the venue. The outreach activities will be evaluated both in terms of attendance and engagement / interaction between the students and members of the Harlem Quartet at the Lincoln Middle School and also, the responsiveness and interaction among senior citizens participating in the Edgewood in Hermantown outreach event. Analysis of concert audience and outreach attendees feedback through questionnaires, online comments and in-person feedback will be used to evaluate the effectiveness Matinee Musicale in raising awareness about its work to a more diverse audience.
