About Wednesday Music Club

About Wednesday Music Club

Wednesday Music Club has over 180 members who are listeners, performers, and music advocates. We share a love of music and a desire to support and encourage young musicians in central Virginia.

The Club provides opportunities for members 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.
