Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Free concerts with quality musicians and established visual artists beckon seniors, the handicapped, and families. Much close-in parking and seating, handicapped curbs and bathrooms. Advertising by print, cable, newspapers, radio and social media. Audience counts, online and printed surveys at concerts. Request emails for future queries and promoting future concerts. Survey data and audience counts will establish a baseline for comparing future outcomes. Cable TV concert and interview taping.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The team we assembled selected and hired musicians and artists that we felt would best carry out our mission. The funds raised ensured that all would know about and enjoy the concert and plein air series free and without barriers at Central Park.
