Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The Wadena Area Community Band will increase the number of high school aged students to three. The Wadena Area Community Band will cooperate with another community band in the region for one or two concerts. We will increase the band size by 10 %. We will count the number of students participating in the band throughout the season. We will perform a concert with another (hopefully Central Lakes College) community band. We will count the number of band members and compare the total with the 2014-2015 season numbers.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Successfully provided an intergenerational musical arts opportunity for the community. Engaged four high school aged students in the band for the whole year.
