The goal of our project is to present a professional-level music and poetry recitation performance during the annual Fine Arts Week at Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College. The concert will provide an opportunity to experience a professional music and poetry performance for our students and residents in the communities we serve, which is an audience and area seeking additional fine arts activities and public performances. Claudia Schmidt's performance will complement the student-level fine arts activities during the week and assist in gaining public recognition of fine arts activities present on our campus. Measurable outcomes: 1. Plan, promote, and present Claudia Schmidt's performance. 2. Host 150 students and community residents attending the concert. 3. Determine audience impact for this concert and gather information for future fine arts activities on campus. Our evaluation plan will be simple yet effective. We will use these methods to correspond with the outcomes listed above: 1. Collect evidence of appropriate event promotion (press releases, posters, community event listings, others), and document the concert event via photography. 2. Count audience members in attendance. 3. Use a paper and pen survey to collect audience member's opinions about this concert, the Fine Arts Week activities on campus, and ideas for future concerts and arts activities.
Outcome 1. Plan, promote, and present Claudia Schmidt's performance: This outcome was fully completed. Promotional materials are included in the attachment sections, and the concert was held as planned and documented with photos that are uploaded with this report. Outcome 2. Host 150 students and community residents attending the concert: Attendance was 120 total, with student and youth attendance was lower than expected. The audience feedback on our survey was overwhelmingly positive and appreciative. Organizers and performer were satisfied with the attendance and participation. Outcome 3. Determine audience impact for this concert and gather information for future fine arts activities on campus. This was fully completed through the use of an audience survey. We received useful information via the 36 returned surveys from audience members. The survey results are included as a separate document in the attachments to this report.
