Promoting innovation and creativity through music!
August 2018 2017 saw the WBC Music Foundation surpass the $100,000 mark in support of music in our community!  Now, in 2018, we celebrate our 13th year and over $115,000 so far.
One of our early goals was to achieve something like having a symphony orchestra as artists in residence.  We thought we were crazy, but we thought about it.  Last year and this year we have funded the ASAP Side by Side Program’s “in school concert” for each student in Region 14.  Every student gets to see a professional performance.  In addition we have funded the tuition for each of the eight Region 14 students participating in the side by side program.The last 12 months have seen a dramatic increase in the amount of money we have been able to raise through events we sponsored. We had two successful concerts at the Old Town Hall in Woodbury as well as a spectacular production of Stephen Sondheim’s groundbreaking musical, COMPANY.  Through these offerings and our local donations, we were able to raise over $11,000 to be used for our mission!
