A unique WWS fundraiser for 2024.

A sophisticated evening community event

New for 2024, join the WWS community at a musical evening of giving for the benefit of the Whistler Waldorf School @ the beautiful Wedge Mountain Lodge located at 9120 Riverside Drive in Wedgemont.

Date: Thursday May 9 @ Wedge Mountain Lodge & Spa
Reception: 6:30-7:30 PM & Concert begins: 7:30 PM

We welcome families to attend but please also be aware that the concert is ideally suited for children aged 6 and above who are likely to appreciate the approximately 90-minute seated concert experience. This is a formal seated event and children must remain seated with their parents throughout the duration of the event. All attendees require a ticket for the evening.

Waldorf education places a strong emphasis on the arts as an integral part of learning. What better way to celebrate and support WWS than with a recital? Join us as we come together to celebrate our community and the transformative power of the arts in education.
