Season Subscription

Fontana’s programming features an extensive array of world-renowned performers—both established and emerging—and diverse programming ranging from classical to contemporary to jazz.

Delivered in traditional as well as alternative settings, Fontana presents a mainstage concert series from September through May, consisting of four or more performances held primarily at the Dalton Center Recital Hall on the campus of Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo.

Outreach programming includes leading the consortium of local arts organizations to present the BRAVO! Competition, which showcases area youth musicians, and working with young musicians in area schools and students at Western Michigan University.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Established in 2001, the BRAVO! competition was incorporated into Fontana’s outreach program in 2015. Similar in format to NPR’s “From the Top,” BRAVO! is a free public recital that celebrates the talents of area high school musicians who audition for spots on the program in front of a panel of professional musicians.
