Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who are able to participate in the arts increases. Real or perceived barriers to arts participation and arts access are identified and addressed. The number of Minnesotans who are engaged in arts education and learning opportunities increases. We will conduct an audience survey to help us to plan our next year’s show, and to find out which communities seem to be the most interested in our performances. We also use the evaluation to find out which communities respond to our advertising and what type of advertising is effective in these communities. We are able to find out which age groups respond to our shows, and that helps us to target those audience members and then try to figure out what we can do to attract other age groups. The Chorus evaluation sheets are provided at our Spring Convention and competition. These written evaluations, provided by trained and certified judges, will be used to plan next year’s coaching schedule. We also use these score sheets to evaluate our success in the current year’s goals and to help formulate musical goals for the upcoming year.
