Celebrating 95 years in Charlottesville, VA


The Wednesday Music Club supports, encourages, and rewards young musicians through music camp scholarships and cash prizes awarded via a professionally judged competition, and provides significant financial assistance through need-based tuition scholarships for music lessons. This year, new programs include a university music scholarship, and music lesson scholarships for symphony student players.

These programs are supported by over a dozen permanent endowment funds and bequests given in memory of past members, by one-time or renewed grants from community organizations or individual “friends of Wednesday Music Club”, and by the generous annual donations of our own membership.

Make a donation


Our grants expand WMC’s mission both geographically, beyond the immediate Charlottesville-Albemarle region, and substantively, beyond individual music lessons and summer music camps.


In the upcoming competition, to be held annually in the Winter, over $11,000 will be given out to support young musicians in the community.

Special Events

Each year, the club holds a special fundraising event for members and friends of WMC featuring performance followed by a reception. The proceeds from these events contribute substantially to our funds.
