UMS exists to connect. We connect individuals to creativity. We connect passion with performance. We connect artists to willing participants. We connect community members to community members. We connect youth to possibility. And we hope to connect individuals with their own inner selves in ways they were not expecting. All of this takes generous support from our community.

UMS represents something fundamental and essential to our community, to individuals, and to an enriched life. We believe that the performing arts, at its highest level, defines a community’s greatest characteristics: giving, sharing, embracing creativity, and seeing the best in humanity.

We rely on your support to keep us vibrant and at the very highest level.

There are several ways to contribute. View the links on the left to find a way that suits you best.
