Fundraising for the scholarship and bursary funds is at the heart of the VWMS. Many talented young artists are faced with financial challenges. By supporting the VWMS, you will be helping many of these artists realize those dreams of establishing or continuing a career in music. Membership fees and ticket sales only cover a portion of our annual operating expenses. We rely on the generous ongoing financial support of our members and friends in order to provide these awards and a platform for winners to be presented in our annual concert series. What a privilege to know that you can make a difference and be an essential part of their musical development.
