  • 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.
