Mission Statement

At Music Makes a Difference!, our vision is to bring the Madison community together through music while celebrating diversity, supporting musicians and generating contributions for local charities.


Music Makes a Difference! was founded by Bill Zorr in early 2017.  Bill was working regularly at a homeless shelter and supporting other organizations like Big Brothers/Big Sisters, but felt he could do more.   Bill loves music and noticed how people of different backgrounds enjoyed musical events together, so it dawned on him to combine his passion for music with his passion for charitable causes and Music Makes a Difference! was born.

Music Makes a Difference! is a charitable organization, staffed with volunteers, dedicated to supporting musicians with paid performances in diverse venues around Madison and the surrounding area.   Music Makes a Difference! then donates contributions it receives to local charitable organizations.  In 2017, grants will focus on supporting homeless organizations.   We're new, but watch us grow!

P.S. Pardon our dust as we build this website.
