Education and Community Outreach Initiatives

Segal & Davis Family Foundation Education Initiative

The Segal & Davis Family Foundation has served a continuing role as a driving catalyst for the WVSO's ever-expanding music education programming. The foundation made a nationally significant, four-year, $200,000 commitment to the WVSO that targets 27 of West Virginia 's most economically distressed counties.

The Segal & Davis Family Foundation recently agreed to extend this partnership past the four-year period enabling the WVSO to continue this nationally significant program.


Katharine B. Tierney Music Education Fund

The Tierney Music Education Fund is a multi-purpose program that provides Young People's Concert Scholarships to economically distressed portions of West Virginia 's remaining 28 counties not covered by the Segal & Davis Initiative. This critical fund creates an opportunity for schools located in distressed pockets of these counties to qualify for transportation and admission fee scholarships when attending a Young People's Concert Series. The fund is also an important underwriter of each of the actual Young People's Concert Series.
