ACHF Arts Access
Chamber music concerts and outreach activities will have been attended by hundreds of people who will have a high quality experience of chamber music. Audience members and outreach participants will know more about the instruments, the repertoire performed, the composers, and the musicians - including hearing music that is new to them - and thus have an expanded knowledge and experience of chamber music. During concerts, we collect anecdotal feedback from the audience about the event they heard. We also periodically survey audiences during the concert season for written feedback. At schools and other outreach events, we seek feedback from pupils and teachers and other participants. At Whitney, we added evaluation methods to gather information not only useful to the Chamber Music Society, but for Whitney Senior Center itself.
Chamber Music Society of Saint Cloud provided opportunities to experience and learn about chamber music performed by top-quality professional musicians. Outreach participants at schools and family concerts learned about instruments, repertoire, and the musicians. Workshops provided group learning opportunities for advanced students and adult amateur musicians. Whitney Senior Center events provided older adults with opportunities to hear and enjoy chamber music. Surveys and feedback were obtained during the events.
