Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The project expands programming from the usual Scandinavian tradition.Recital success will be measured through attendance numbers and a short written exit survey. Workshop success will be measured by collecting and distributing participant contact information to encourage playing together again. Challenging workshop participants to present a recital together at the museum in 2014.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Ms. Reilly's performance is quite wide ranging. The closest she comes to a Scandinavian tradition is her fondness for hymns and choral singing. She highlighted her upcoming performance with a Minneapolis church chorus. Lake Region Arts Council members may recall your 2013 banquet- we enjoy juxtaposing performance and audience with the museum collection. Introducing instruments from the collection, even playing them in the workshop, is one of our programmatic goals. The special exhibit became a part of the performance. The theatrical drop is one that has not previously been on display in the museum. This concert presented an opportunity to show the drop and use it in the context for which it was designed - live performance. This goal is less obvious in its evaluation. Ms. Reilly encouraged participants to play/sing loud. She noted our progress throughout the morning. Inspire opportunities to continue to play instruments with others. Two workshop participants already perform together. Others declined to pursue performance opportunities.
