Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

A guest lecturer will offer an educational 90 minute symposium, free of charge, before the concerts on the form and meaning of a requiem. Educators, musicians, clergy and the public will be invited to attend this event. During the concert, narrative will set context and history of the Requiem for the audience, from medieval times to the present. The concert features the area premiere of “Requiem for the Living"ť by Dan Forrest. This include organ, an orchestra of winds, violin, harp and percussion and two soprano soloists. This acclaimed new work has been performed multiple times at Carnegie Hall and on NPR's Performance Today. The emphasis in all of this is to offer hope in the human condition. The Chorale will evaluate the response of the audience to the symposium, and singer and performer satisfaction with repertoire and performance. The Board will hold a meeting within the month following the concert to focus on finances, performance satisfaction, the collaboration with our guest lecturer, and the feedback from an audience survey and a singer survey. All information gathered will be used to assist in future planning, collaborations with area organizations and individuals, and continued relationships with area instrumentalists and soloists. Evaluations on the value of the educational event will be assessed using feedback from those in attendance at that event in particular.
