Arts Legacy Grant
ACHF Arts Access
The variety and number of arts opportunities in Northwest Minnesota will increase through this opportunity for the general public to interact with the artists and attend workshops on their special interests. Evaluation will occur through an audience questionnaire, personal observation of activities, follow up meeting with project planners, attendance numbers, and interviews.
My students' greatest need was to see, hear, and interact with professional musicians. Having Copper Street in to our school for two days gave my students a truly unique and lasting experience that they will remember for years to come. Based on our questionnaires, 100% of students learned about brass playing and chamber music. 100% of community members also said they enjoyed the evening performance and would hear this group play again. The attendance numbers were almost identical to the estimates we had in the original proposal illustrating a successful project. Both the audience and participant (student) surveys were distributed. We also received an informal evaluation from the Copper Street Brass that included their thoughts on our students' progress and tips for continuing the brass players' advancement. My students spent two days working with professional musicians, a time they will never forget. The brass players got the chance to work with world class players on their instruments and they learned several tricks and tips to help them play with their best possible sound. The non-brass players got the chance to learn about chamber music and how it can help them within their larger band. I received many positive comments from the community members that attended Copper Street's evening concert through the questionnaires as well as informal discussions post-concert. People here in Warroad don't get the chance to hear professional concerts and having Copper Street here to perform has given the entire community an opportunity it otherwise would not have had.
