Bravo, Suzanne Callahan, for writing a comprehensive guide to arts evaluation that clarifies the process for arts and cultural organizations and pushes the evaluation conversation further.

The benefits of fashioning and executing an evaluation process in the arts, as clearly as Ms. Callahan has, cannot be underestimated…I have no doubt that Singing Our Praises will be a resource to be found on the shelf of every forward-thinking arts professional.

A great addition to a woefully lacking canon of literature on this subject as it pertains to the unique joys and pitfalls of arts presenting.

The subject matter was so comprehensively covered. The author took complex terms and made them relevant to us. And best of all — I can’t say this enough — it was presented in a way that really works in our industry. This is a super great work!
