ABOUT US

Life is meant to be abundant, and the arts are a vital part of it.  

Through music and art, we experience life's goodness more fully.  

The reality, though, is that not everyone in our community has the chance

to share in these experiences.  The School exists to address this --

to enrich lives, build community, and reflect grace through music and art. 

WHO WE ARE

We're a nonprofit extension of 

First English Lutheran Church (FELC) in Appleton serving our Fox Cities community.  Named in memory of

a Lutheran pastor, loving father, and

skilled self-taught musician, we warmly

welcome your participation.

WHAT WE DO

We make piano lessons possible

for children; offer young musicians small-ensemble experience; engage youth of the community through summer interns; and inspire people of all ages annually with the

Fox River Chamber Fest.  

HOW WE DO IT

Being independent of FELC

budgets and funding, we rely on the generosity of donors and volunteers 

to ensure that our programs remain viable and accessible to all people of our community regardless of one's faith, background or means. 

TESTIMONIAL

"It is a wonderful thing to see a child grow as a musician and

to have the whole world of self-expression open up to her...Attending

The School has made her happier and more confident overall."
