Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The goals for this project are: to provide all student participants with a deeper love of the musical Arts, to give student musicians more confidence as a musician/jazz performer, and provide knowledge about jazz history, culture and language. We also seek to support and help grow Hawley’s Arts community by providing a high quality Jazz Arts event, accessible for all community members that wish to attend. A concert exit survey requesting feedback regarding this project will be distributed with each program. During the concert program, we will ask the audience to fill it out. Questions will include: 1. was a this program a good use of Minnesota’s grant monies, 2. was this a high quality Arts event, 3. rate the educational value of this program, 4. did you enjoy the program and 5. how likely is that you would attend another Arts event as a result of attending this program? Space will be provided for written comments. A box of pencils will be available. Student and community feedback not recorded in the exit survey will provide more information regarding meeting our project’s goals.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Concert Exit Survey Results* - 35 surveys 1 = lowest to 5 = highest Question 1. Was this a high quality performance?
