Welcome to our  webpage!!! Please check back frequently to see what events we are sponsoring.  Be sure to scroll below the Calendar on the calendar page for more information on our events!

We would like to encourage anyone interested in the arts to come join us at our monthly meetings.  We meet every fourth Monday of the month at the Ferguson Building in Willow Springs at 5:00PM.

Our Fourth Annual Sponsorship Campaign is underway!

The Willow Springs Arts Council is always busy and especially during the Fall.The council has already sponsored the annual Spooktacula concert by the Southern Ozarks Community Orchestra, a Crafts Show, and kicked off our annual Fall Sponsorship drive!  Coming up is a concert on November 27th by the Southern Ozarks Youth Orchestra, a Christmas Tree Lighting event, and a holiday concert by the Southern Ozarks Community Orchestra.

All of these activities are made possible by the generous donations of our sponsors.  We encourage individuals, businesses, and other organizations to make a donation to the arts council to help ensure events like these continue in our area.  Sponsorship can be for specific projects such as the orchestra, art camp for kids, or other events.  100% of donations go to support Arts Council activities.  The WSAC is a 501c3 organization and donations are tax exempt.

Our fund raising goal for this year is $6,500.  To date, the council has received $3,035.  We are very grateful to the following sponsors who have made a commitment to continue support of the arts in our area:

We are very sad about the recent fire that damaged the Historic Star Theater!  This theater is a landmark and had been the site of many Arts Council sponsored events, including both the Community and Youth Orchestras.  Please check to see where upcoming events have been rescheduled.

The Southern Ozarks Youth Orchestra is practicing every other Sunday at the Ferguson Building from 3 to 4:30PM.  The Arts Council is very proud to sponsor this growing group of young musicians!  Their next concert will be at Grimes Auditorium at the Willow Springs Middle School on November 27th.

The Southern Ozarks Community Orchestra under the direction of Joe Dias has resumed their practice schedule from 7 to 9PM every Tuesday at the Ferguson Building.  They are working on a holiday concert to be presented on Sunday, December 18th.
