Mission: The+Wirth Center for the Performing ARts is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) community school of the arts that enriches the region's cultural environment by providing exceptional performing arts education and performance opportunities for students of all ages and abilities.
Results: Through a generous donation of one of our families, we were able to upgrade our 30-year old piano lab to keyboards with "grand-piano" touch and a state-of-the-art teacher's console. Donations have also helped us to purchase Orff-Schulwerck toned instruments for our Early Childhood programs, provided scholarships for all families that have qualified and requested financial aid and allowed us to install mirrors in our dance studio.
