Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

This project will affect two major outcomes for Civic: first, the Orchestra will perform nine free concerts in three venues, reaching 1000 or more Minnesotan families in communities across the West Metro. Member-musicians will measure to the extent the season is artistically strong, that the organization is running effectively, and that the orchestra is led well by the conductor and board. The members complete mandatory written evaluations during the first few weeks of the season, that measure on a 1-5 scale artistic satisfaction, orchestra management, and collect short answers on participation and their commitment to the orchestra. The audience's feedback is collected through interactions after the concerts, comments on social media, and through surveys distributed in programs (typically at least one per season).
