Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

To provide a venue for family oriented musical entertainment at an affordable price. To respond to the last concert's exit survey in which a majority of the respondents selected Bluegrass Music. To offer free workshops in Guitar and Vocal Harmony. To encourage workshop participants to perform with the band during the Bluegrass Concert. To introduce Midwestern Bluegrass songs and tunes in addition to the conventional Appalachian standards. The project will be deemed successful if a minimum of one hundred people attend. An exit survey will be conducted to determine audience satisfaction, interest in future evening concerts and the type of music desired.

Measurable Outcome(s)

There were over 100 attendees for the concert and 18 participants for the Vocal Harmony Workshop. The exit survey was not conducted because R Grella did not remember it until the audience began to leave and it was too late to do so.
