Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Goals to increase the number of classical music concert attendees under age 40. Invite leaders from the orchestra and music industry to attend the premier performance to identify its potential use and benefit to the industry.Outcomes will be measured by professional video recording of the concert, a survey of participants to gauge responses to the experience and identify opportunities, conduct focus groups with orchestra industry leaders and vendors, and attendance numbers of audience under age 40.

Measurable Outcome(s)

An original music composition and companion interactive visual media piece premiering a Chromolume, a new medium for the integration of light and sound for live orchestra performances as controlled by on-stage musicians. We anticipate this product will engage new audiences.
