Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Real or perceived barriers to arts participation/access are addressed through providing an exceptional and unique brass music experience for students and Fosston community members. Evaluation will occur through an audience and participant questionnaire, personal observation of activities, and attendance numbers.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Through participant observations shared with the director, students were astounded by the Copper Street performances. Although our actual audience numbers on Friday night (around 150) were lower than the estimate (200), and other school activities precluded some students and families from participating in the final performance, the experience was successful for the students based on their and community response heard in the succeeding weeks.
