It's a big understatement to say that an Underwriter makes a significant contribution to the nonprofit they support. The FWC is honored to recognize Randie Lewis, our
2021-2022 Season Underwriter, for her generosity and partnership!
FWC Season Underwriters are those who donate $10,000 or more during the year. Their large gifts are very important to the Board's and Staff's ability to plan ahead - even before a season begins.

The most recent, the Schola Cantorum Project, partners the FWC with up-and-coming composers to make music available to schools where there is a lack of funding and
The 2022-2023 season will be the FWC's 60 th Anniversary. We’re very proud of our legacy and are grateful to ALL donors who have contributed to it over the last 59 years.
