Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

These two concerts will increase the number of concerts given by professional musicians which are readily and financially accessible to students of all ages in Southeast Minnesota. It also provides a roadmap to local composers to increase visibility for their work. I will collect data on attendees of both recitals and follow-up with the composer if his work was published because of the concerts. The expected participation number is 1,000 because I expect composers work to be published and others to perform it.
