Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

First-time-ever audience members and participants and increasingly larger audience numbers over the course of the festival. Following each concert and masterclass, surveys are administered, measuring demographics, attendance, etc. and audience members are invited to share: How did the music make you feel? By writing on post-its and posting their responses.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Each year we see new audience members, average attendance increase and individual donations increase. We used audience numbers, donations, post-its and comment cards (between 18% and 33% completed for each event).
