Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

We intend to maintain large audience participation that promote a sense of community. This summer we are including a focus on school district alumni as part of one of the events to enhance the benefit possibilities. We will maintain our process to collect audience participation counts and record that data. We are integrating several evaluation methods for our upcoming music series to collect feedback from participants and artists.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Attendance has increased each year that we have offered our concert series. Of our survey responses related to what style of music was of interest 50% requested that we add Classic Rock. Another 25% of respondents requested Classic Country. All respondents reported satisfaction with the quality, that they were likely to attend again and that they enjoyed the music presented.
