New West’s mission is to “Bless people of all ages, leading them to experience love through music, community, and compassionate giving”.
New West Society features three distinct divisions:
New West Symphony & Chorus – a vibrant, adult-based choir and orchestra that has been blessing people since 2010
New West Student Ensemble – a dynamic choir and orchestra for students in Grades 7-12
New West Music Academy – a place for students of all ages to gain skills in singing and a variety of instruments
We are a faith-based community organization that is committed to blessing people of all ages through music. Our volunteer members are committed to collectively pursuing excellence, fostering a sense of belonging, and being fun and inspiring. Established as a charitable organization, New West Society believes in using our platform to support organizations that serve the vulnerable, both in our city and around the globe.

THANK-YOU for YOUR SUPPORT!
New West Society’s 10th Annual Black & White Charity Gala and Silent Auction has come and gone, and we are so very grateful to every person contributed to the success of our event. Thank you to people and local organizations who donated amazing items for our auctions! We are grateful to the hundreds of people who bought tickets to attend the Gala to spend the evening with us. And, of course, our fundraiser wouldn’t have been successful without the people who purchased raffle tickets, committed to donating to New West Society on a monthly basis, participated in our 1st ever “Cupcake Pull” (that sold out!), and placed bids on our wide variety of fantastic live and silent auction items.
