Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Saint Francis Music Center will present local folk musicians at the 2016 Green Fair Folk Festival. Saint Francis Music Center will create a drumming circle at the 2016 Green Fair and engage at least 50 community members of all ages in the drumming. All performances will be digitally recorded for review and evaluation following the Green Fair Folk Festival. Audience members will be polled by the evaluation team as to how they enjoyed the music, feedback on the performers, and future suggestions. Participants in the drumming will be polled for reactions and suggestions. The Green Committee and the Music Center staff will meet after the Festival and review all the polls and comments and plan for next year.
