Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

1. To purchase a set of hand chimes to enhance our musical performances, 2. To acquire new music to expand the range of music performed by the ensemble, 3. To continue to provide public performances for audience throughout the region at reduced rates or for free in the coming year, 4. To provide music lessons for new students to increase the number of players in the region, and act as a feeder for our group or other choirs in the area.The musical skill level for the bell choir will increase with the third octave and the new music. The audiences will notice an enhanced musical experience at our public performances. The audience will increase their knowledge about the history of bell choirs at the public performances.

Measurable Outcome(s)

All of the feedback was positive, there were no negative comments. Many of the audience members appreciated the performances so much they asked us back to perform again.
