Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The Concerts at the Commonweal Theatre highlight collaboration between two art forms: classical chamber music and theater. Stringwood outreach performances take place in Lanesboro, Rochester, La Crosse, and Winona. All performances are recorded and select concerts are broadcast on Minnesota Public Radio. We use Survey Monkey for program data collection and a "call and response" with the students and are able to gather discreet and valuable information about the success of the program.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Measurable goal is attendance at the concerts. The number of returnees and new attendees was tallied. On overall increase was noted.
