Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The purpose of chamber music is to create a rapport between performers and listeners. Audience members can mingle with artists during intermissions and open receptions.Rochester Chamber Music Society will measure goals with surveys, concert analysis by the board, feedback from artists, informal discussions with audience, and data collection regarding attendance, donations and expenses.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We chose exceptional regional and master musicians to play in a venue with excellent acoustics and which allowed the performers and their listeners to be close to each other. The artists offered information about the music during the performances and during intermissions and after the concerts.
