Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Students and adult singers in these five areas of the Five Wings District will have an opportunity to increase their skills in and passion for the choral arts. Students and adult singers in these five areas will have an opportunity to deepen their appreciation for a specific musical genre selected by the clinicians and the choral directors at the various high schools. We will use a simple, two question survey which will provide a general understanding of some key takeaways from the experience. A random sampling of singers at each workshop will be asked to participate in more in-depth interviews to provide a more complete picture. The answers will help us determine whether or not appreciation for choral music and choral skills have increased for these singers as a result of what they learned in the workshops.
