Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Increase Minnesotan's engagement with relevant, accessible performances that offer new perspectives on the art of chamber music. Track attendance data for all performance events, regularly survey our audience, artists, staff, and board for data regarding concert locations, ticket prices and program content. 2: Increase understanding about CSB's music, creative process, and educational knowledge using new, in-person and online engagement initiatives. Track attendance data from open rehearsals and pre-concert conversations, track engagement data from online activities such as live streams and live online Q and A sessions.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The CSB reached nearly 20,000 Minnesotans last season by performing concerts and presenting educational programs in 44 communities. We track program and attendance data online after each service. Engagement was measured using qualitative surveys and interview with participants. 2: Engagement with CSB's engagement initiatives grew in FY 209 resulting more understanding of our art. Tracked attendance data from open rehearsals and pre-concert conversations, tracked engagement data from online activities such as live streams and live online Q and A sessions.
