With the belief that arts education is a key ingredient for development of life skills and is essential toward creating a vibrant community, the West Michigan Symphony is committed to offering a wide array of learning and engagement programs for school children, as well as a variety of activities and concert presentations for all ages.

Learning and Engagement Fund Donors

West Michigan Symphony is dedicated to providing programs that help children develop an appreciation for music that they will carry with them their entire lives. Your donations to the Education Fund help the WMS provide in-house music instruction programs as well as music enrichment opportunities that reach deeply into our local schools and community organizations.
