To promote classical music to the youth of Lancaster County and encourage interest in symphonic music.
In 1953 a group of 13 women joined together to promote local symphony orchestras. Their first project was to sell beverages during intermission at a performance at a local high school. From that humble beginning has grown an organization supported in part by the Maude Bates Fund (begun in 1981) and the Barbara Little Endowment Fund (begun in 2002). While these two trusts help the WSA accomplish its mission, the support of the community, its partners and volunteers- people like you – is what fuels the inspiration of so many young people.
