Concerts are affordable and offer two free concerts during the school day for elementary students.Onsite survey collection and tracking ticket sales and attendance comparisons with the past years data to determine trend analysis. The board holds a formal debrief of each concert to identify and address areas for improvement.

We included in our program this year collaboration with a local dance studio, which allowed us to see increased attendance at the December performance over the year before.
