Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this project, youth, teens and young adults will be introduced to well performed music of the 60's that they have not heard, and as a result will be able to relate to parents and grandparents who remember it well. Evaluation will occur by the response of the audience to the performance, by counting numbers of audience members and by board members interacting with audience members both before and after the performance to measure the level of enthusiasm they convey for the performance.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The age range was 9 months to 97 years, most of whom were tapping toes and smiling the entire two hours of performance. The entire county had received advertising for the event, it was in two local publications and on the radio. Specifically targeted, were the high school band and choir members of the county. The event drew together alumni from the Ada High School 50's and 60's era around a genre of music that was "theirs". The smiles, sing along, and dancing indicated that it was a success.
