Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who are able to participate in the arts increases. The quality, types and number of arts opportunities in our region, and the organizations or venues that offer them increases. Real or perceived barriers to arts participation and arts access are identified and addressed. We will create three exit surveys to measure our goals and outcomes. One is for the audience to complete. The others will be for the choir members and the Choral Scholars. The surveys will be inserted into each program. Performer surveys will be given to the artist participants before the second concert.
