Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The mission of the Lake Superior Chamber Orchestra is to produce a summer series of professional caliber chamber orchestra concerts in Duluth. From its inception thirty years ago the Lake Superior Chamber Orchestra has sought to support and celebrate talent from the region. All of our orchestral musicians are either Twin Ports area residents or in some instances natives come home for the season to visit family and play with the Lake Superior Chamber Orchestra. The same is true for many of our featured soloists - including the two soloists supported by this grant proposal. Receiving its premiere performance on this concert will also be a new work by one of Duluth's most prominent composers, Mina Kaiser. The artistic evaluation will be made by the Lake Superior Chamber Orchestra's artistic director and board of directors based on formal and informal evaluations from participant musicians, from comments of audience members and from reviews in the press.
