Oral History Information
Jerry Wenger was just a kid when he recalls his father asking him and his sister to help him out with building some products he has invented, in the basement, for his school use as a music educator. Jerry was right there at the beginning of one of the music industry’s most innovative manufacturer of furniture and equipment for music practice, rehearsal and performance facilities. The role the Wenger Company has played has been enormous and somewhat overlooked by those outside the industry. Under Jerry’s second generation leadership and ownership the company has expanded his father’s dream of supporting music education with complete and extensive product lines from furniture, acoustic systems to risers, platforms and acoustical shells for performance. The company today under the ownership of Jerry’s daughters continues this mission and the dream.
