WHERE THE MONEY GOES...
SUPPORTING SCHOOL MUSIC PROGRAMS
Additionally, each year one of our Water Music Festival artists presents an educational outreach program at the schools. These programs have been highly motivational for the students.
HISTORY OF WATER MUSIC SOCIETY
Water Music Society has been providing entertainment of the highest quality and variety since 1984.
In 2013, WMS added, as part of its focus, becoming a fund-raising agent to support music in the schools. A portion of proceeds from WMS events are given to the local schools to enrich the musical environment for young people and further their opportunities for educational workshops and conferences.

JAZZ & OYSTERS
WATER MUSIC FESTIVAL
Draws audiences from far and wide to the Peninsula for three days of memorable concerts. It has always been the goal of Water Music Festival to feature a variety of artistic genres during any concert weekend and to encourage artists to present a varied program. The Festival particularly welcomes those artists who relate well with the audience.
In 2009, WMF began a program of including talented young people from the community in one or more of the October concerts. This program was enthusiastically received and will be continued. Also, as part of the organization’s mission to promote educational outreach, one or more artists appearing in the October Festival conducts a workshop at the high school which includes elementary, middle and high school students.
Has been a favorite way to start the season since 2001. It has always been offered to serve our winter residents and the many families that come to the peninsula during the holidays.
