About Wednesday Music Club

About Wednesday Music Club

The Wednesday Music Club is made up of over one hundred and fifty members from the Charlottesville, Virginia area. We are listeners, performers, and music advocates who share a love of music and a desire to support and encourage young musicians in central Virginia.

The Club provides opportunities for members and their guests to perform at monthly meetings. Small informal groups within the Club gather regularly for study or performance. Regularly scheduled student recitals are sponsored by the Club, where the students of any teacher in the community can perform for a very supportive audience. Most importantly, each year the Club distributes thousands of dollars in scholarships, awards, and music lesson tuition assistance to young musicians.

Our Mission

The Wednesday Music Club promotes and expands quality musical and educational opportunities for its members, for teachers, for music lovers, and for the youth of Central Virginia through regular performances, shared group experiences, competitions, and financial support.

Our Vision

The Wednesday Music Club will foster and sustain a vibrant music climate throughout Central Virginia, especially among young people.

The Wednesday Music Club has accomplished over 90 years of music making and community involvement in Central Virginia. Learn More
