We believe the arts express the essence of what it means to be fully human. The Lancaster Festival celebrates the artistic creativity of all cultures, serving as the foundation of year-round community efforts to nurture participation in the arts.


     • Promote the artistic growth and outreach of the Lancaster Festival         Orchestra as the cornerstone of classical music programming.

• Maintain the highest quality in all aspects of the Festival, while    encouraging experimentation and adventure.

• Support and offer visibility for community artists.

• Be all-inclusive in our appeal to the community.

• Be an advocate of arts education for all children.

• Nurture the sense of family, community and homecoming in the  Festival.

• Create a dynamic organization that will sustain and grow the Festival    into the future.

• Stimulate economic development in the community.

• Make the Lancaster Festival a nationally visible signature of the    community.
