“You can’t live a perfect day without doing something for someone who can never repay you.”
John Wooden, basketball coach and inspirational leader
At Wharton Arts, we use music as an instrument for social transformation. We believe that everyone can learn to experience and express music deeply regardless of their background, receive its many benefits, and make positive life choices because of this learning.
Donations made to Wharton Arts through December 31 will be matched $1 for $1 by a very generous donor. The donor will match donations up to $50,000!
We will use these funds to build our grassroots efforts in Paterson to offer a free Saturday Youth Orchestra, bringing young musicians across the city to play together. These funds are essential to continuing our delightful community choir for older adults. We will also celebrate New Jersey Youth Symphony’s 40th anniversary this year with a public concert at New Jersey Performing Arts Center. We need your support to make all of this possible!
