Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Bemidji Chorale will increase revenues through increased advertising and promotion with our new logo and through CD sales to compensate the conductor, accompanist, and guest musicians adequately.Bemidji Chorale will compare revenues over the next two years to those of prior years to see if there is an increase, and if so, how significant. We will also strive to increase compensation for the conductor and the accompanist based on an increase in revenues. We will report these outcomes with copies of the checks and financial statements, as well as providing copies of CD, advertising and promotion with the new logo, and a report of any contributions or verbal comments received after our concert.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Advertising and promotion of CD sales resulted in an increase in revenues for the Chorale over the previous fiscal year. The grant and the increased revenues provided compensation for the conductor, the accompanist and guest musicians.
