Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program, students from two very different demographics as well as actual locations within the state of Minnesota will break down barriers to grow in their own humanity through the art of music. Evaluation will occur through pre and post participant questionnaires, a follow-up meeting with the project planners from both schools, counting actual audience, artist and youth numbers throughout the project and at the performances.
