Collaborating on this project with other artists will broaden my knowledge of the subject and further develop my skills as a musician and performer. The combined ideas, music skills and knowledge base of the collaborators will create a piece of broader scope than I would create on my own. Thus, I'll learn more about the subject, learn new repertoire and expand my music and performing skills. 2: The performance piece is being designed as a touring concert that will cover a variety of musical styles and appeal to a wide range of Minnesota audience members. Concert attendance will be tabulated and audience surveys will indicate feedback about the concert experience and value of the information provided.
The concert piece created by the artist and her collaborators broadened the artist's knowledge of American Music history and expanded her repertoire, stylistic range and performing skills. Of the sixteen songs included in the program, the majority (75%) were new to the artist, and 50% were outside the artist's customary musical style, creating an opportunity for the artist to expand her repertoire and stylistic range. The narrative between songs resulted from the artist's and collaborators' research of American Music history and demonstrated expanded knowledge of the subject. 2: Audience response and surveys indicated enthusiastic appreciation for the variety of musical styles and information presented in the concert. Based on positive audience response, the concert will be marketed for touring around the state. Audience surveys and live audience response were the evaluation methods used. Surveys were included in the concert program, of which 91 were submitted. Comment/essay questions were used to inquire about the audience experience; multiple choice questions were used to measure demographics. Survey comments indicated enthusiastic interest in the variety of music styles and appreciation for the learning aspect of the experience. Demographics showed audience representation from twenty-eight cities in seven counties.
