Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

1. To protect the rich repertoire and cultural history of the Worthington Area Symphony Orchestra. 2. To remain dedicated to providing an opportunity for life-long musical expression and enjoyment for musicians and audiences of all ages. 3. To perform a new contemporary cultural work which presents a technical and artistic challenge to its players. 4. To perform an original composition written by Brulé. 5. To gain a deeper admiration for Brulé/Paul LaRoche, Native American contemporary musician, for his talent as a composer and musician. Worthington Area Symphony Orchestra will evaluate the rehearsals and concert through written surveys taken by Worthington Area Symphony Orchestra musicians and concert attendees. An additional part of the success of the concert will come from the number of people attending the project activities and the concert. Reserved seating tickets will be sold for the concert, allowing Worthington Area Symphony Orchestra to record attendance numbers. Results from the evaluation will be gathered and recorded by the leadership team.
