Although it's only four years old, the Wallowa Valley Music Alliance has made a big impact on Wallowa County's cultural scene, making life much more exciting for musicians and music lovers alike.

The nonprofit organization takes a lot of joy in celebrating and promoting music in the county.

t is dedicated to the growth of the music community by connecting instructors with students and encouraging participation in all types of music.

Other organizations that want to liven up their event can always rely on the alliance to line up musicians happy to entertain.

Musicians regularly to play, listen and socialize, and the public is always welcome. WVAC also hosts a monthly Tunesmiths Night at local eateries and pubs, taking the summer off to organize the popular outdoors Courthouse Concert Series on the lawn of the courthouse every Thursday from June through August.

For more information about all the music alliance's activities, call executive director Janis Carper at 541-426-3390 or visit (
