Music makes a difference

"I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. it's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music." - Billy Joel, The Piano Man

Our motto is to listen, learn, play, perform. We live and breathe this every day. Engagement takes on all forms such as playing, singing, taking lessons or classes, attending events, and sharing the gift of musical achievement. Collectively, The Music Center impacted over 30,000 people last year and held 63 events during our 2022-2023 season. Only through support from you can we achieve this level of engagement.

But The Music Center is Much More . . .

To make all of this happen, we need your help. Please consider making a donation to The Music Center or any one of our programs and support our important mission.  Donate online or call 269.963.1911, ext. 2586.
