Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Our goals are to provide young musicians from area schools with high quality musical instruction, by two professional soloists, to advance their musical skills. To provide the young musicians with the experience of playing under real concert conditions with an orchestra of high caliber. To increase the awareness among school-age children and their families of the Bemidji Symphony Orchestra and to excite school-age children with the wonders of classical music.There will be an audio/video recording documenting the performance. Student musicians will fill out an evaluation of their experience, asking how this experience has changed or enhanced their own musicianship and what impact this experience might have in the future. We will ask the students how many of their friends and family members attended the concert because of their participation. Parents will fill out an evaluation which will give their perspective on the experience as well.
