Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Conductor Alexander Corbett will implement “conductor chats” beginning with the Fall concert season. Expand public relations outreach and increase website use by 20% over Winter 2016. Increase the audience attendance at the Brainerd and Little Falls concerts by 10% over last year's Winter concert. Add 3 new corporate sponsors. Add 10 new Heartland Symphony Orchestra contributing members. A visual count will be taken at each program and an evaluation sheet provided for participants and audience. In addition, informal assessments will be received by staff and included in the worksheet for each program. Ticket sales will be recorded and analyzed to determine geographic location of audience members. Participants will be invited to provide oral or written summaries of their experiences at both the rehearsals and the concert.
