Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Audience members will gain a new understanding and insight into the lives of performers. They will gain knowledge about the performers' training, and what inspires and motivates them.Volunteers will observe and record the reactions and emotions of audience members. Each performing group will conduct a talk back session immediately following their presentation. Audience members will be able to ask questions to gain insight into each performing group. The answers will be recorded and reported back to the concert committee.

Measurable Outcome(s)

It was observed by “spotters” that groups of audience members thoroughly enjoyed all three performances. The Hunt family performance and their sharing of their lives on the road with the audience was of particular interest to the young people in the audience. At the Abbey Road band concert, audience members stormed the stage, just like the “Beatles” in the early ‘60’s. The audience at the Church Basement Ladies was totally engaged in the play and “spotters” observed a lot of conversation reminiscing about their own experiences in a church basement in “days gone by.” In the written evaluations we asked: “This performance enhanced my knowledge of musical comedy” Of the 97 evaluations collected, 46 strongly agreed and 32 agreed. We also asked “Have you attended a Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage program in the past?” And of the 97, 46 said “yes” and 51 said “no.”
