Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Staples Area Women's Chorus seeks to broaden the experience of other community and high school groups, either as participants or audience members via the instruction of an exceptional guest director and challenging musical selections. Staples Area Women's Chorus wants this project to serve as a springboard for future women's choir events in the area. We want to widen the range of our partnership with area schools and organizations. Staples Area Women's Chorus will track our concerts, noting type of venue, type of music, etc. toward adding additional choir events in the area. We will also actively solicit community feedback for new event opportunities. Through enhanced data collection, we will tracking our participant and audience numbers along with demographic information as we seek go increase our influence to other schools and organizations. We will continue to invite highly skilled professionals as guest director in order to provide exceptional musical instruction and also for participants to experience the joy of singing together as a multi-generational voice.
