Dues-paying members receive an annual yearbook and bi-monthly newsletters. Members are encouraged to participate in outreach and mentoring programs and serve the organization on various Functional Committees.
Instrumentalists and vocalists may audition at two levels of performance:
- 1) Soloist and/or ensemble performer at public concerts
- 2) Soloist and/or ensemble performer for in-house concerts (Member Musicales)
Click here to view descriptions of the various performance levels and audition requirements for each. Auditions are held several times throughout the season.
Members regularly form chamber ensembles to perform on concert series or at public venues. Established groups include Amalia Consort (which performs Renaissance and Baroque music on period instruments), Aurora Quartet (a string quartet), the Sonora Trio (a piano trio) and the Columbus Cellos.
Composers, teachers, and musicologists are able to practice their arts within WMC as well. Performed works, mentoring opportunities, and program notes and discussions showcase the abilities of many of our multi-talented members.
