Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

More Minnesotans, especially those in the Southwest Minnesota Region, will be able to participate in the arts. This camp allows area musicians to get the confidence of playing in an orchestra in college or community. The camp is becoming more known and we are getting more participants. The more participation and positions we are able to fill shows us our goals are being met.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We performed a concert for for the public. A survey was handed out to the audience at the concert to evaluate the program. As a participant, I think the week and concert was a success.
