Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Matinee Musicale's goals for this project are?1) to increase access to different forms of intimate musical expression for audiences in the region; and 2) to develop new audiences for Matinee Musicale by featuring an internationally acclaimed artist who also lives in Minnesota and performs regularly in the region. The primary measurable outcome is to drawn at least 175 in paid attendance for a program featuring solo violin with piano representing a 30% increase from previous solo violin recital attendance. Matinee Musicale will measure short term outcomes both quantitatively and qualitatively. Attendance for all events will be quantified through ticket sales and door counts. Audience demographics will be assessed through surveys, ticket purchase zip code analysis, and click through rates of online advertising. Qualitatively, response to programming will be measured through positive word of mouth, media reviews, and audience feedback both offline and online. Data will be incorporated into ongoing tracking tools that measure and compare year over year statistics and participation rates by performance genre and outreach category to assess longer term audience growth and new audience development.
