Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The quality, types and number of arts opportunities in our region, and the organizations or venues that offer them increases. New relationships with members of groups that have traditionally been underserved by the arts or by the applicant organization are built. Musicorum’s concerts will be evaluated positively by at least 60% of attendees, as measured by an audience survey included in concert programs. In addition, they will assess their work via open-ended comments on audience surveys and by recording at least one of their performances.
