Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this project, a diverse audience will have an opportunity to learn the appreciation of two distinctly different musical art forms. Evaluation will occur through audience numbers, personal interview of impressions, and ascertaining the geographic distances from which the audiences traveled.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We observed a few younger people stayed to watch both programs as opposed to leaving after a short interval. Attendees learned how songs evolve with the history of familiar/popular music presented on two large screen televisions. I explained how much of the funding was made possible and one member in the audience shouted, "Save the arts." to which prompted the audience to clap in agreement. A State legislator in the audience agreed that programs like this should definitely be continued.
