Don't Miss a Beat!

Fifth Season Promises to be Great!

The Lancaster Symphony Orchestra (LSO) and the Arts at Millersville University have partnered for a new experience for performers and audiences this concert season.

“I was looking to do something a bit different for our fifth season opening night, and partnering with the Lancaster Symphony on a new venture sounded exciting,” said Laura Kendall, director of the Office of Visual and Performing Arts at MU.

The season opening is a tribute to Hollywood’s greatest composers and features music from “Star Wars,” “Superman” and more. Hollywood Heroes, a full orchestra concert, will take the stage in the Clair Performance Hall (Winter Center) on Saturday, September 19, at 7:30 p.m.

In the spring, LSO and MU will again collaborate for “Broadway Our Way.” The concert will feature singers Will and Anthony Nunziatas who have been described as “a nearly impossible pairing of talent, stage presence and charisma” by the Huffington Post. Broadway Our Way will have two showings on Saturday, May 14, 2016, at 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. in the Clair Performance Hall (Winter Center).

This is a collaborative effort from two of Lancaster’s premier arts organizations. The LSO and Arts at MU have the opportunity to grow classical music audiences and enhance learning experience for students.

Millersville University’s Office of Visual and Performing Arts oversees the Ware and Winter Centers, which serve as cultural centers by presenting a wide variety of events and exhibitions ranging from student and faculty works to internationally acclaimed ensembles. The vision is to promote civic engagement, collaboration and innovation between the University and the greater Lancaster community.

These events are open to the public. Tickets cost $45 for general admission, $20 for children 17 and under and $20 for MU students with ID. Tickets may be purchased at, at the Student Memorial Center Ticket Office (Room 103. 21 S. George St., Millersville), by calling 717-871-7600 or at the Ware Center box office (42 N. Prince St., Lancaster). The Student Memorial Center ticket office is open Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. The Ware Center box office is open Monday-Friday 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. The Winter Center box office will be opening one hour before showtime.
