Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Goals: Establish the Arrowhead Chorale's December performance as an annual holiday tradition in the Twin Ports area. "Holiday Jubilations and Traditions," will focus on providing performances of traditional and contemporary Christmas choral works and carols that reflect the cultural heritage of the area. Conduct two concert performances the weekend of December 15-17, 2017. Collaborate with other area choral and instrumental groups and/or soloists from the Arrowhead region. Outcomes: Exceed average ticket sales/attendance (over the past five years) for our Fall/December concert. Positive audience feedback about the concert. Positive review of the concert by the Duluth News Tribune. Submit a report to the Chorale Board comparing average ticket sales (over the past five years) for our Fall/December concerts to ticket sales for December 15-17, 2017. Conduct audience surveys, post-concert and via email, to obtain feedback about the concert. Review of the concert by the Duluth News Tribune will be another indicator of success for this project. A recent positive review of the 2016 fall concert resulted in an increase of donations to the Arrowhead Chorale. (See attached review by Duluth News Tribune of the fall 2016 concert.)
