CAE made an impact in the previous year by fulfilling our mission in presenting our regular series of four concerts (encompassing 9 performances) of varied repertoire of time and place, holding a Community Sing event, premiering three commissioned works, working in collaboration with other regional musicians and guest artists, and giving outreach performances on the Mayo Clinic campus, a local retirement center and the public library. This was accomplished with a complete board of 18 directors of varied professions and expertise, a staff with combined years of service of almost 30 years, and a full roster of 40 singers. We also used marketing tools of print, tv, and radio advertisements and feature articles, public posters, monthly e-newsletters, Facebook and Twitter posts to reach out to current and new supporters.
Current Goals
Last year’s goals remain relevant and continue as our goals for the current year. We will maintain our high quality roster of singers, board members and artistic and administrative staff; program and present a broad spectrum of choral works, including newly commissioned pieces; work collaboratively with other regional artists and arts organizations; increase our visibility to new and more diverse audiences and singers through outreach programs and a variety of marketing strategies.
