Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program, the BSO musicians and Dr. Everettůas challenged by the meter, rhythmic diversity, and musical interpretation of ôGiantsöů will expand their artistic aptitude through new insights, approaches and technical skills. As a result of this program the audience will broaden its perspective on the composition, performance and enjoyment of contemporary classical music. After the concert, Dr. Everett will be interviewed via email about how she and the orchestra overcame the technical challenges presented by the music and how working with Max Wolpert helped them with the musical interpretation of ôGiantsö to evoke the composer's intended imagery. A random subset of the audience will be surveyed, via paper questionnaires, to determine if their perspective of contemporary classical music has changed and if they have gained a new appreciation for such music.
