Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Provide affordable access to residents of Austin, Minnesota area to attend live orchestral performances. Estimated attendance a t funded concerts is 3,800. Raise the number of opportunities for area musicians to create live, symphonic music. Outcomes will be measured by data collection (number of musicians participating, attendance, number of events, revenues) onsite survey, review or recorded concert footage, musicians' feedback and feedback during board debrief of each concert.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Providing affordable access and raising the number of opportunities for area musicians to create music. Our orchestras were larger than the previous year by 5-8 members per concert, and ticket prices have remained the same for 8 years, and children under 18 are always free.
