The Power of Music To Change Lives
Wharton Institute brings the life-changing power of music to children, adults and seniors regardless of their socio-economic status. Our students are excited by their prospects and inspired by the level of commitment they encounter from all who instruct and guide them. It is our pleasure and our privilege to serve our community, and we look forward to changing lives through music for generations to come.
You Can Change Lives!
When you give to the Wharton Institute you’re supporting music education scholarships for disadvantaged youth throughout the state, bringing the joy of music to chronically ill children in long term pediatric care, and ensuring musical excellence for our most talented young artists in the New Jersey Youth Symphony.
