We will send four artists from our concert series in the Twin Cities to perform a second concert in Morris, Zumbrota, Grand Rapids, or Fairmont. Concert occurrence is the outcome. Success is evaluated as quantitative (attendance, revenue) and qualitative (satisfactory artistry). Our partners will write us, summarizing quantitative results and qualitative (review by their executive director). 2: Three of the target cities (Morris, Grand Rapids, and Fairmont) are new concert sites for us.

We sent six artists from our main concert series at Sundin Hall to perform concerts and conduct workshops and master classes in Morris, Zumbrota, Grand Rapids and Fairmont. These same performers plus an additional 15 guitarists, performed and offered workshops and master classes in the Twin Cities, including our main stage at Sundin Hall. 2800 people attended these concerts. Local newspapers and schools promoted the events in rural Minnesota and brought in student as well as adult audience members. Evaluation included reports from the leaders of the venues on audience numbers and quality of the arts experience as well as feedback from the artists and audience. One audience member in Grand Rapids gave our organization a $500 donation after the concert. 2: We worked with three cities we had not worked with before - Morris, Grand Rapids and Fairmont. These concerts went very well, and we are encouraged to reach out to more parts of the state, especially to towns where we have connections via one of our board members or if an artist is from that area. The local audiences were so appreciative of our performers. All of the performers said that the audiences they had in Minnesota were the warmest crowds they had ever played in front of. Artists also offered workshops that went very well with local audiences, including students.
