The evaluation results, there were around two hundred audience who came to attend the concert. Of these, 64 people replied to the evaluation form. The resulting score is 4.39 out of 5, with S.D. of 0.67, which equals “GOOD” on the evaluated method by Likert scales.

For the organisation side, 27 people out of 37 replied to the evaluation form, which yields the score of 4.07, with S.D. of 0.99, again “GOOD” on the evaluated method by Likert scales. The general comments show that they agreed with aims of concert project including the activities as well as the sharing of the idea of participation. In the development side, the comments show that the committee and work team would like to also have other activities besides the concert performance, such as a leadership camp. General problem is the physical distance during work process, which cause delay in communication and other organisational problems.
Next stop of THEMSN project will be officially hosted by Bansomdejchaopraya Rajabhat University, College of Music in 2020. The next official THEMSN meeting in turn will be hosted by the Princess Galyani Vadhana Institute of Music during the annual PGVIM International Symposium in August 2019. For the first time we would like to open the door to our international friends to join THEMSN.
