Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans that 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.We will survey our audiences to gauge the success of our publicity efforts, identify our target demographics, and assist with future planning. Our online presence via our own website and Facebook allows discussion of the Chorale, its mission, performances and repertoire, and offers a way to solicit comments from the general public. We will interview our donors to get their sense of the value of the Chorale and its efforts.
