ACHF Arts Access
To provide an opportunity for local musicians to actively participate in the arts while creating an educational, entertaining and engaging program for an audience to enjoy. In addition, WASO continually seeks to expand its audience and include new attendees to experience the arts. Through surveys and number counts that evaluate both the rehearsals and the concert filled out by musicians and attendees.
As a result of 2 written forms/surveys -1 player/1 audience, WASO was able to measure demographics of the audience including age, gender, home location; impact on the musicians including what they learned from this project; and impact on the audience.
