Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

We have as goals this year to increase our audience numbers and to offer programming that would appeal to broader audiences, which both go along with providing access and building new relationships with groups traditionally underserved. We will collect and track data for ticket sales, donations, audience attendance and costs for each concert. We will coordinate with and advertise through the Welcome Center, an institution that helps new residents and especially recent immigrants.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Our outcome was to compensate our part-time manager for planning, organizing, and following through with all the small tasks and logistics required to keep our organization going through seven concerts and 43 rehearsals per year. This was accomplished, since all were successful.
