Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

This project will connect communities through vocal music. Connect generations by having boys and adult men choruses working together on a project. Provide an opportunity for students, adults and community to experience and be involved in a mass male chorus event. Provide an economic opportunity for local musicians, restaurants and lodging facilities. We will evaluate our first goal by the response of the participating community groups to the survey of the participants. An evaluation done by both Staples Area Men's Chorus and the Association of Male Choruses of America is provided to all participants and audience at the end of the event.
