Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The goal of the 2014-15 Arrowhead Chorale Anniversary season is to present extraordinary chorale music in celebration of 25 years of promoting fine choral music to the region. The March concerts allow the audience to experience a seldom performed work, Bach's Saint Matthew Passion, with full orchestra, organ, multiple choirs and professional soloists. Funding is sought that supports obtaining excellent instrumental performers. Activities to achieve these goals include grant writing, advertise thoroughly, offer complimentary tickets to children, students, and various social service agencies including clients of Churches United in Ministry, and present history, background, and educational opportunities with each concert.Measurements need to reflect both specific data and general emotional and personal satisfaction. So the Chorale will be looking at: 1. Attendance/ticket sales at both performances and the symposium. 2. Feedback from audience, performers and staff. 3. Board reflection at the end of all activities associated with the events. 4. Feedback from partners in the collaboration—University of Minnesota-Duluth, First Lutheran Church, instrumentalists, soloists, and area church choirs.
