Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program local 4th and 5th grade students will experience an exposure to orchestra music through attendance at a live children's orchestra concert. Also, as a result of this program, young music students will experience increased appreciation of personal music practice and increased motivation to continue participating in music through hearing the Hamrin sisters perform Mozart’s “Sinfonia Concertante” and William’s “Schindler’s List” at the Lincoln Portrait concert. Bemidji Symphony Orchestra executive director and BSO board chair-elect, will work together to finalize the 4th/5th grade music teacher children's concert tally and comment form. They will also work together to finalize the music student survey for the Lincoln Portrait concert. Both of the evaluation tools have already been drafted. Ms. Hasbargen and Ms. Wolf will also finalize the timeline and task list for implementing the evaluation methods to ensure the methods are implemented as planned.
