Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Saint Francis Music Center will offer three singing groups that will meet weekly; the groups will be free and open to the public during the 2015-2016 school season. Saint Francis Music Center will engage over 80 people ages 5 through senior citizens from throughout Morrison County in a chorale group. Saint Francis Music Center will present at least 3 free concerts featuring one or all chorale groups to an audience of 300 or more during the 2015-2016 school session. We will track the participants in each choir as to number of participants, number of returning participants, ages, and addresses. We will also ask each participant (or parent) to complete an evaluation measuring specific goals. We will count audience members at each concert; plus we will encourage audience members to complete short surveys.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Successful choral music project which resulted in increased skill level by participants.
