Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Saint Francis Music Center will offer four singing groups; the groups will be free and open to the public during the 2016-2017 school season. Saint Francis Music Center will engage at least 120 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 2016-2017 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; we will collect verbal comments from audience members at the concerts and receptions. In the past we have asked for written comments, evaluations, or score sheets and have had very little participation from the audience. They are always very interested in giving verbal feedback so we will have staff available to log comments.
