Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

We will count participants, both people with and without disabilities, at rehearsals and at performances. We expect total number of chorus participants to be 65, monthly rehearsals to average 40 participants, and the audience size for the three performances to total 400 general public. Twice, at project's midpoint and at final session, we will poll participants with a show of hands survey: "Did you enjoy this?" and "Would you like to continue participating going forward?" At project end, we will also poll the ACT board, "Should we continue this program for next year?"
