Women of Note (WON)  is a networking group where women come together to celebrate the arts in our community. The funds raised by WON allow all Grade 4 students in the central Vancouver Island region an opportunity to experience the Vancouver Island Symphony LIVE on the stage at the Port Theatre.

This Integrated Music Education Program is a partnership between the Vancouver Island Symphony (VIS) and Island School Districts. The school districts pay $1 plus busing for all Grade 4 students to attend the  concert, and the VIS raises the remainder of the funds required to produce these shows.
