Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

To support professional Minnesota musicians as well as long-time Festival of the Lakes musicians from other areas of the US and Canada. To provide affordable admission ($15 for adults) to high quality professional chamber music concerts in this community. To encourage students, including college students, to attend by offering free admission. To expand the Festival of the Lakes concert series in its 25th anniversary season to provide more concert opportunities to attract a larger and first-time group of listeners. To reinforce the Festival of the Lakes performance format where individual musicians (not established musical groups) are hired to perform specific musical programs designed by the Lakes Chamber Music Society Music Director. 1. As in past seasons, Lakes Chamber Music Society board members circulate in the lobby during intermission and after the concert to field comments from listeners. We keep a record of the comments for review at our post-event board meeting and note specific kudos and constructive comments for future events. 2. We will have a guest comment book located in the venue lobby where listeners can leave a message about their perception of the event and any musical interests for future concerts.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Quality of Performances - listeners' comments were enthusiastically positive about the skill and musicianship of the artists as well as the music selected for the programs. Audience members appreciated hearing the ''Best of the Festival of the Lakes'' se
