Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Saint Francis Music Center will host a Folk and Fiddle Festival to provide an opportunity for young central Minnesota fiddlers to work with folk musicians and perform before a large audience. Saint Francis Music Center will present area folk musicians in concert at the Green Fair Folk Festival.We will evaluate the Festival by asking for oral and written feedback from the artists, the audience and the volunteers. We will meet after the Festival with the musicians, and other staff to review how the process went, and brainstorm ways to improve the Festival to make it more effective. We will measure the involvement by number of folk musicians involved and the quality of the performances.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Successfully provided a community music arts experience with vast majority of participants indicating a positive impact on their lives.
