The Goal of the Great River String Ensemble is to present its Spring Concerts on April 18, 2015 at the Crosby, High School at 7:00 PM and April 19, 2015 at 2:00 PM at the Aitkin High School. Beginning on February 17, 2015 the players of both groups will be encouraged to attend 9 practice sessions. These sessions will concentrate on: 1. Listening skills (to themselves and others). 2. Bowing Techniques. 3. Style of the composers. 4. Musical signatures / notations etc. 5. Rhythm patterns. We will measure the outcomes by: 1. Attendance. 2. Gate receipts. 3. Donations. 4. Written survey of the concert audiences. 5. Written survey of the Great River String Ensemble and Ripple River Strings players.
There was an increase in attendance, ticket sales and donations. The annual silent auction created more interest as well as giving. There were many comments to the directors and the Great River Strings Board Members present as to the improvement in techniques, sound and quality of the performances.
