Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Rose Ensemble musicians present concerts in ten Minnesota cities in 2013 (one more than 2012 tour), and present workshops in K-12 schools/colleges/senior centers in each city. The Rose Ensemble will have successfully presented a concert in each of the ten tour cities, as well as having provided an educational program at the local K-12 school or senior center. 2: We are visiting three new cities that have not been part of our previous tours and returning to seven cities where we have previously performed. We visit three new cities in 2013: International Falls, Walker, and Wadena. We present concerts in each city plus 7 cities previously visited. We offer educational programs in a K-12 school/senior center - reaching new audiences in the three new tour cities.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The Rose Ensemble successfully presented concerts and educational programs in ten cities around the state. In eight years of touring, this is the most cities we've visited in a single tour. 2: The Rose Ensemble performed concerts in St. Peter and International Falls, reaching new audience members in cities that we have never visited.
