Did you perform at SingStrong? (Choose ALL that apply)
Yes! With the Single Singers!
Yes! In the HS Competition!
Yes! At ACA-IDOL!
Yes! At a Spotlight Showcase!
Yes! As a Headliner!
Yes! In a class or workshop!
Yes! In the halls or around the festival!
Yes! At the open-mic afterglow!
Nope. I was perfectly happy to observe all the talent around me. Besides, only the empty cup can be filled. Ommmm...
Nope. But I wish I could have performed.
What did you think about ticket prices?
Wow! What a bargain!
Fairly priced considering the quality and length of the shows.
They were pricey, but I know it's for a good cause!
Way out of my budget!
What did you think about the length of shows?
I could not get enough! I seriously did not want the shows to end!
A bit long but still enjoyable!
I was really ready to get out of there!
What groups, offerings or activities motivated you to purchase tickets?
What would make you most want to purchase tickets to SingStrong NEXT year?
SingStrong supports music programs, and the fight against Alzheimer's. How important is that to you?
Extremely important. That's why I'm here!
Somewhat important. I'm glad you do it, but I'd still come anyway!
It's a good cause but I'm all about the music!
I'm strictly here for the a cappella! The charity stuff isn't even on my radar!
Did you get enough information about Alzheimer's while at SingStrong?
Yes! A small amount goes a long way!
No. I would have liked more materials about this terrible disease.
How did you enjoy your FREE coaching?
Even though coachings are free, I did not participate.
Our coaching was incredible!
Our coaching was really good!
Our coaching was fine.
I was underwhelmed by our coaching.
If SingStrong added a show on THURSDAY, prior to the weekend's events, would you attend?
It would depend on which groups were in the show.
No. 3 days of a cappella is my limit!
I would come to another show but not on Thursday.
A Weekend Pass is the best deal we offer. Did you purchase a Weekend Pass this year?
Yes! I love seeing all the shows!
If you did NOT purchase a weekend pass, why not?
Family obligations prevented me from attending additional shows.
Work prevented me from attending additional shows.
School obligations prevented me from attending additional shows.
Church or synagogue prevented me from attending additional shows.
Finances prevented me from attending additional shows.
My interest in a cappella doesn't really justify seeing more shows in a weekend.
Had the groups been different, I would have seen additional shows.
Please rate the overall experience you had at SingStrong
Loved it! I am telling everyone that they MUST come next year!
Really good! I'll be back!
Fine. Perhaps you'll see me again, if the mood strikes me and I like the line-up and I'm not committed to anything else.
Needed some improvement. I might return, but my arms will be crossed to indicate my doubts about the quality of the festival.
A good cause with very serious flaws. I'd rather donate money directly than come back.
Were you greeted with a smile and genuine warmth?
Yes! You could really feel the positive energy!
Somewhat. I mean they smiled sometimes, I suppose.
Not really. Everyone was on smile break when I showed up.
How did you feel about the website?
Visually appealing and easy to navigate.
Good. But some information was a little hard to find.
Confusing. I could not find what I needed.
I never visited the website.
I accessed the SingStrong website most often via
combination of the above
Did we provide clear information at the SingStrong Festival?
Yes. Signage was very clear. I didn't even need to ask any questions!
Yes. Signage was clear and when I had questions they were answered promptly and fully.
Somewhat. I found some signage to be unclear.
Not so good. I did not get the information I needed despite looking and asking.
How did you feel about the email and telephone communications from SingStrong?
I didn't need to communicate via tel or email.
Excellent! I got fast clear responses!
Good. Of course it could be faster or clearer, but for an all-volunteer organization, I'm happy!
Troubled. The communication was either seriously delayed or unclear.
What did you think about the T-shirts and other Merchandise for sale?
Cool designs! Fair prices! I picked up some nice swag!
Cool designs but you did not have my size.
Cool designs but I prefer different colors.
Cool designs but out of my price range.
I wan't a fan of the designs.
You had merch for sale? I didn't even know!
How did you feel about the Afterglow?
Loved it! The location, food and energy worked for me!
Did not love it for reasons I'll tell you about below.
Did not attend due to the late hour.
Did not attend for other reasons.
You had an afterglow?! I didn't even know!
If you were Supreme Ruler of SingStrong, what would you change? What would you keep?

Either is fine!
Neither time works and I will tell you why below...
I overheard other people saying this and I thought you should know...
The sound at the concerts was
Amazingly clear and powerful! I loved it!
Really good! Especially considering how challenging it is to run sound for so many different types of groups!
A tad bit too loud.
Way too loud for my tastes.
Too soft! You need to crank it!
The lighting at the concerts was
Distracting or inappropriate at times.
The Silent Auction was
A fantastic experience! Great bargains for a great cause! I bid a lot!
Good. I did a little bidding and had fun!
Fine. I made one bid because it's a good cause.
Confusing, so I didn't bid.
Filled with items I had little interest in so I didn't bid.
Way beyond my financial means so I didn't bid.
I missed the auction because I had a conflict.
I missed the auction because I didn't know about it!
The FREE shuttles were
Great! There when I needed them, clean and well-driven!
Not great. There were problems which I will tell you about below.
I didn't even know there were free shuttles!
I didn't need a free shuttle.
The hotel was
Great! Good quality, price and location.
Some issues, but I would stay there again.
Not good. I would pay $30-$50 more/night for a better hotel.
