Established in memory of the first full-time music director at Myers Park United Methodist Church, the Walter Herbert Ball Endowment Fund for Music provides funding for music programs of the church for which he labored so long and so faithfully. The Fund has been used to underwrite concerts and educational workshops with international clinicians and artists for our choirs and community. It has also provided funding for the commission of new sacred music, supported portions of the church’s Music at Myers Park Series, and subsidized the Chancel Choir’s tours to England, Austria, the Czech Republic, and New York City. All contributions remain as principal, with only the interest from contributions being spent.
