Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Our goal for this project is that, through the vehicle of music, young learners and adults gain a greater understanding of why tolerance for racial and cultural diversity is not only possible, but vitally important, while being moved and inspired by excellent musicians and the rich wealth of history and stories they have to share. Our long-term measurable outcome is to contribute to our community's awareness of connection to the national and global community, including the creative and artistic ways we can all participate in moving towards greater cultural healing and harmony. NSMA will use workshop and concert surveys to assess the project's success, as well as assessment of concert ticket sales, post-event student and audience verbal feedback, comments on our Facebook page, email, and letters. The NSMA Director will collect numbers and feedback and will present it to the NSMA Board at a monthly meeting for evaluation and discussion. The Director and Board will use this information to design future programming that effectively meets the expectations and needs of our learners and audiences.
