Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

To heighten awareness of free concert venues in school districts. Schools who did not previously have spring concerts will create more performance opportunities. This helps build and maintain the music library in every band room, building relationships within school instrumental music programs.I will evaluate the project by utilizing DVD recordings of concerts and through the use of internet surveys to both directors and students. I will use data collection of audience numbers to verify audience participation, to increase audience participation in school instrumental music concerts.

Measurable Outcome(s)

To provide the schools in the Southeast Minnesota Arts Council region with a free copy of concert band music about Southeastern Minnesota, by a Southeast Minnesotan composer, to be played in Southeastern Minnesota. The piece was completed, sent out, and happily received by several schools in our area.
