Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Ameriikan Poijat will continue to reach out to new audiences, those with less opportunity for live music listening, such as residents of retirement centers. Our brass music is very "up front" in its imagery and so reaches new ears easily. We intend to do question and answer sessions at our performances, and to poll our audiences for their demographics for us to compare with previous years.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We met our goals.
