Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Students and community will learn more about brass ensemble, and the varied musical repertoire it is capable of presenting. Music parents will see increased value in supporting these type of programs for my students. Enthusiasm will grow for future concerts in Wabasha by chamber music groups.The primary form of evaluation is from myself as band director, my students, and the community members that attend the sessions. Copper Street Brass Quintet uses a written feedback survey that I will give to my students to measure the overall reaction to the program, the best portions, and to solicit ideas for improvement.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Students learned more about the brass quintet and the varied musical repertoire it presented. Music parents saw increased value in supporting these types of programs for students. Enthusiasm for future chamber concert appearances in Rochester grew.
