Arts Tour Minnesota
ACHF Arts Access
For nine years, Jelloslave has performed extensively in the Twin Cities, and it is ready to share its unique cello-driven music throughout the state. Jelloslave will achieve project outcome 1 through successful performances at each tour venue, to be evaluated by the audience via a paper survey at the concert, and an online survey available at our website. 2: Jelloslave will tour to communities and regions not previously visited. Touring to new Minnesota communities will advance the ensemble's professionalism and broaden each community's musical horizons. The achievement of this goal will be reflected in the new relationships formed between Jelloslave and wider regional audiences.
Jelloslave presented eleven successful concerts in ten different counties throughout the state of Minnesota. We made strong connections in each of these different communities and established new professional relationships with these venues and their managing directors. We were very enthusiastically received at these venues, with warm and personal interaction between us and these new audiences. This resonated quite strongly for each of us as individuals and for the band as a whole. We were given standing ovations in every venue! In addition to our personal and palpable experience of winning over these new audiences, as stated in our proposal, we also evaluated audience response with a paper survey at each concert. We asked questions about their experience hearing Jelloslave for the first time, and asked for their observations regarding our unique instrumentation and improvisational compositions. 2: Jelloslave toured eleven communities/regions in ten different Minnesota counties not previously visited during our nine year collaboration that had until now, been centered in the Twin Cities. Touring to new Minnesota communities has advanced the ensembles professionalism and broadened each communitys musical horizons. The achievement of this goal is reflected in the new relationships formed between Jelloslave and wider regional audiences. Our new website www.jelloslavemusic.com, created with promo and marketing funds from the grant, is providing a forum where we can stay in touch with our new friends/colleagues, and promote their missions as well as ours, as well as documenting our tour in photos. We have received many invitations to return and perform, and we plan to apply again in 2014-15 for a Minnesota State Arts Board Arts Tour Minnesota grant, which will allow us to deepen the relationships initiated thanks to the funded tour in 2013-14.
