Arts Activities Support
ACHF Arts Access
Thorough preparation for, and completion of, three concerts: the Nutcracker with Woodbury Dance Center, Irish Origins with Center for Irish Music, and One Thousand and One Nights; as well as increasing our concert attendance by 20%. During the season we also plan to strengthen our ties with collaborative partners and increase East Metro Symphony Orchestra's visibility and presence as an East Metro arts institution.The success of each concert and our season will be evaluated through several means: a one-page audience survey included inside each program; audience attendance and funds collected; post-concert evaluation session by orchestra members; and feedback from collaborating arts organizations.
Positive outcomes this year include surpassing our goal of a 20% increase in audience numbers, as well as seeing more balance in audience make-up, and increased audience donations over projections. Audience survey preferences have influenced programming for next year. Musician/orchestra confidence was significantly boosted by meeting the challenge of successfully performing Scheherazade.
