Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

All services will be free events, thus removing ticket price as a barrier to participation. Outreach service participants will have the opportunity to meet artists and engage them in conversation through “question and answer” periods. Surveys will be distributed that track demographic information and collect artistic impact statements measuring how services enhance the region, artistic quality, and if audience members develop knowledge/skills/understanding of the music presented.

Measurable Outcome(s)

This project recognized and addressed real or perceived barriers to participation in the arts -- All project services were free events, thus removing ticket price as a barrier to participation.
