Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

This proposal will improve access to quality arts experiences because concerts are performed locally, providing opportunities for all ages.Program notes and post-concert receptions allow guests and musicians to network and discuss the performances, strengthening relationships and building community.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We provided access to participation by providing seven concerts for artists and audience participation. We provided a quality arts experience and built new relationships with underserved groups in our community by providing live, symphonic music and a world-class Mariachi band and instruction to over 2500 school children which furthered their education and cultural awareness.
