Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Increase our audience from 2013 by over 20%; expose over 150 children and youth (17 years old and younger) to live opera performance.1. Audience figures will be collected and evaluated through headcount at both performance, with augmented information collected through internet survey following the festival series. 2. Media coverage will be initiated through invitation and evaluated through follow-up and actual coverage. 3. Financial outcomes for underwriters will be tracked on an ongoing basis through our strategic fundraising/development plan. Free-will donations will be counted directly following the performances.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Successful chamber music festival with an estimated 25% increase in participation over previous year.
