Results Of Concert Survey Released

Mayor Don Wesely's Concert and Entertainment Task Force has released the results of a survey designed to gather public opinion about concert opportunities in Lincoln. The survey was distributed in April through the Lincoln Journal Star, entertainment venues, campuses and other locations, and more than 500 questionnaires were returned to the Mayor's office.

Among the survey results:

The Concert and Entertainment Task Force began meeting in January 2000. The survey results will be part the Task Force's report to the Mayor, now scheduled for release in mid-June.

The survey was developed by the task force with help from Cheryl Wiese, Associate Director of the UNL Bureau of Sociological Research. Results were compiled with the assistance of the box office employees at the Lied Center.

Those who filled out and returned the survey by April 15 were entered into a drawing for a "Fun in Lincoln" prize package. The winner, drawn by the Mayor May 26, was Rick Goldsby, who had filled out a newspaper form. The package includes tickets to local events and other gifts donated by Warner Enterprises, Three Eagles, the Lincoln Community Playhouse, the Star City Dinner Theatre, UNL Athletics, the Lied Center, Pershing Auditorium, Lazlo's/Jabrisco/Empyrean Ales, the Douglas Theatre Company and Amigo's.

(Complete survey results are available by fax by calling Diane Gonzolas at 441-7831.)
