Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

1. To provide audiences with the highest possible level of musical performances. 2. To design programs that reach our community outside of performances at Orchestra Hall. 3. To do so in a sustainable financial structure. Audience feedback. Data collected from students parents classroom teachers fine arts specialists and school administrators.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The Minnesota Orchestral Association fully achieved its first two proposed outcomes: the Minnesota Orchestra provided audiences with the highest possible level of musical performances, and numerous programs reached audiences outside of Orchestra Hall, most notably Common Chords. 2. The organization took significant steps toward the final outcome of operating within a sustainable financial structure. Most important was the board approval of a four-year strategic business plan, which outlines a path toward a sustainable financial structure. The closing of Orchestra Hall for renovation, administrative cuts, and the beginning of negotiations with the musicians all took place in 2012.
