Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The three artistic events will positively impact 1,150 people: 400 at Cantus, 350 at Salsabrosa and 400 at Dessa. At each event in the project, we will record attendance, ask attendees to complete an evaluation form (which includes age and residence) and use a poster board methodology to measure pre and post-performance audience moods'.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The chosen outcome was to impact 1,150 people with performances and workshops by Cantus, Salsabrosa, and Dessa. Our total attendance was 1,171, surpassing our attendance goal.
