Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Rochester Symphony Orchestra and Chorale will provide two performances of the Nutcracker Ballet, to audience of nearly 3,000 people from Southeastern Minnesota who would not otherwise have opportunity to experience or participate in a full original production of one of the most renowned and treasured classical ballets.Post event surveys of audience and artists to improve the experience. Performance will be recorded for artistic performance evaluation. Ticket sales will measure revenue and audience attendance goals. A new online ticket system will track geographic areas of attendees.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Access to full original production of classical ballet. In addition to selling 1,484 tickets to this event, 216 tickets were given away to the Boys and Girls Club, Ronald McDonald House, and families at Brighter Tomorrows, an outreach organization serving families affected by childhood cancers.
