Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Our goals are to average 150 people at each concert. We also should be able to achieve an above average rating on our survey regarding the audiences' opinion of the concerts.We will count the individuals that attend each concert. We will also have our audience complete a survey at the end of our last concert.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We believe that the concert series enriches the community with quality music. It also expands our musical offering to the summer. It gives our organization a good reputation in Appleton. We have people say they miss the concert when the series is complete. This concert series exposes our audience to many types of music so they can develop an appreciation of different styles. The series also allows local musicians to perform before a live audience and demonstrate their skills. We had many people attend from other communities.
