Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The quality, types and number of arts opportunities in our region, and the organizations or venues that offer them increases. New relationships with members of groups that have traditionally been underserved by the arts or by the applicant organization are built. Musicorum will use audience surveys to evaluate progress. Fred Slocum created, constantly revises, and tabulates results from our audience surveys. We will include the survey in concert programs and orally ask audiences to complete it.
