Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

CAE constituents will learn through a season of activities with an enhanced educational focus from pre-concert talks to a high school choir festival. The season will be evaluated through targeted audience and singer surveys, increased pre-concert talk attendance, advance commitments for a second festival. 2: CAE will maintain efficient, effective systems and procedures for the responsible management and strategic application of our resources. This outcome will be evaluated through our annual audit, by analysis of our expense management, and by the success of donor solicitations and grant applications for programs and general support.

Measurable Outcome(s)

CAE held a high school choral festival serving three schools and families; three (two pre-concert, one post-concert) activities educating concert attendees. Students and directors were surveyed following the high school festival; 2nd one is planned; CAE staff and singers participated in concert activities (dance lessons, composer talk, and star-gazing) with audience and gathered reactions. 2: CAE maintained efficient, effective systems and procedures for the responsible management and strategic application of our resources. CAE received once again a clean opinion from our auditor; donor gifts and successful grant applications exceeded budget estimates; expenses remained stable despite adding additional staff.
