Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

It will build relationships with members of groups that have been underserved by the arts. By attending this camp, I will become a better musician and have more opportunities to play for various groups in my community. If I expose more people to the arts, I can ask more people to join arts programs and encourage others to do the same. To measure the success of this goal, I will keep track of any increases/decreases in participation, especially by teens in underprivileged groups in my community (i.e. homeschooled, minority race), in certain arts such as school band, choir, and orchestra, community orchestra and band, and school and community musicals since I have many connections with those groups through the arts.

Measurable Outcome(s)

There were 69 students participating and around 300 people at the main concerts. About 150 people were at the chamber concert. I learned how to play better in an orchestra and how to blend my sound with the group.
