Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

We will continue increasing the amount of students who enroll in our program. We started with 16 students, the current program has 21 students, and we seek to have 24 students for the fall 2015 program. Rehearsal attendance has been inconsistent. But by delivering a better constructed program, we seek to have a greater level of commitment to attendance from our students. Central Minnesota Youth Orchestra's last concert was attended by less than 40 people. For the fall, we seek to expand that audience beyond 45. We will track and compare our enrollment numbers to previous semesters. We will track and compare our rehearsal attendance to previous semesters. We will track and compare our performance audience numbers to previous semesters.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Our tangible goals were to increase our membership, participant attendance and live audience. All three goals were met and exceeded. We increased our membership by 6, doubling our goal; Attendance was spectacular, though we don't have previous years numbers to compare it to; And our audience was estimated to be ~150 people, three times our last concert.
