Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The target audiences for the performances are traditional audiences, BSU music majors and professors, and students in the Bemidji Area Schools and at Headwaters School of Music and the Arts. Working with professionals will help Bemidji State University music majors improve their understanding of the music they perform and role in collaboration. Exposure to professional-grade performances will give young people knowledge and awareness of classical music and the lives of professional musicians. Music teachers and directors will be contacted via email to report on the impact the experience has had on their classes. Students who work directly with the professional musicians will be asked to report their experience in talk back sessions. Professors will be asked to provide additional feedback to the project director regarding the impact this experience has had on their students.
