Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Choral Arts Ensemble will provide access to participation in the arts for more Minnesotans as we bring our choral concerts to three venues outside of our home base of Rochester: Chatfield, Zumbrota, and Winona. We intend to collect data on attendance, do an onsite survey of our new audiences, conduct informal interviews and gather stories at post-concert receptions. We also routinely record our concerts for our own internal evaluation.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Our desired outcome, to provide access to participation in the arts through choral concerts in Chatfield, Zumbrota and Winona, was achieved. A majority of each audience were new to our organization.
