The project's goal is to offer the local community a unique opportunity to hear a world-class pianist performing Bach and other classical works. The outcomes are to: (1) offer Angela Hewitt's piano recital to an audience of 300 people, and (2) bring to local awareness the art of 20th-century piano virtuoso Rosalyn Tureck and her connection to the College through Jan Chiapusso.We will evaluate the project both qualitatively and quantitatively, based on attendance and audience response. Ticket sales will measure our audience size. Qualitatively, artistic success will be based on audience engagement at the pre-concert lecture and the post-concert reception. The post-concert reception is an excellent way to gather informal and reliable feedback, and it allows audience members to interact with the musician. A brief evaluative survey, inserted in the recital program, will monitor audience feedback in a more formal way.
Our first short-term goal was to have an audience size of 300 people at Angela Hewitt's recital of Bach's "The Art of the Fugue." The actual audience size was 135 attendees; however, due to the overwhelmingly positive responses we received from audience members, we feel that the project was a success. Although we might have reached a larger audience had we opted for a mixed-works program, our selection of the all-Bach program enabled us to offer a monumental performance of one of Ms. Hewitt's specialties.
