Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

To perform quality concerts and educational services that serve adults and students generally not served by other professional arts organizations. Concert audiences are surveyed anonymously at major concert venues, and teachers and school administrators are surveyed at all schools served by the orchestra’s Music in the Schools.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The Sinfonia performed 42 Concerts: thirteen Winter/Summer, twenty in-School, one Children's, and eight holiday/summer, plus presented programs for talented youth. Evaluation methods included anonymous audience and teacher surveys, letters from students, juried contests, reports from sponsor/hosts, and direct feedback from attendees at performances.
