Not only was it a fun concert, but the audience loved it!
For the World Premiere performance of my composition “Heed The Bell” I partnered with the Dunedin Music Society who produced the event, as well as Creative Pinellas who awarded the DMS with an ArtsUp grant – funding to host an event at the Pinewood Cultural Park in Largo.
For our event we were hoping for 48 people to attend, but 76 turned up 🙂
A post-concert survey revealed that:

  • 87.5% of attendees rated the event 5 stars
  • 75% of attendees rated my composition 5 stars

The marketing messages were clear as the majority of attendees remembered who sponsored the event (Creative Pinellas, the Dunedin Music Society, and Stephen P Brown)
Some positive feedback included:

  • That you added dance to complement the music.
  • The creativity of the presentation and the caliber of the performers themselves. Love the flute player!!!
  • The original work, Heed the Bell, and the gorgeous flute playing.
  • It was very creative; also liked the dancer
  • The seating arrangement and the composition, “Heed the Bell”.
  • Creative with audience involvement
  • The intimacy between audience and performers.

Some areas to improve for the future include:

  • After listening to the flute and cello for the whole evening, another instrument to break up the tone would have been even better…like a violin or piano.
  • The intermission interrupted the flow and relationship that was building between audience and performers.
  • A more accessible venue in mid-Pinellas
  • A program handout
  • More variety in the music

And I liked this particular comment:

We love the Dunedin Music Society and feel so blessed to have an organization like this is our city.

All in all, a tremendous success that maximized the available resources.
