Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

We will provide engaging programming with opera music for both audience and musicians. To meet the mission of providing engaging programming, the Long Prairie Chamber Orchestra will engage in a collaboration with Concordia College. Students, who have been under the direction of faculty member Anne Jennifer Nash, will present scenes and arias of popular operas. We will reach out to young musicians and have 20 Long Prairie Grey Eagle students attend a Saturday workshop with Concordia college students. Success will be measured by positive feedback from both audience and musicians. We will look for feedback via applause, personal comments, emails, as well as testimonials which people can fill out. We will count the number of students that attend the Saturday workshop and discuss with Erik Espe (Long Prairie Grey Eagle choir director) and Dr. Nash how the workshop went for Long Prairie Grey Eagle students as well as Concordia students.
