Lancaster Symphony Orchestra
Currently in its 65th season, the Lancaster Symphony Orchestra presents 24 subscription concerts, a “Sounds of the Season” holiday series, a New Year’s Eve Gala Celebration, and a free, outdoor community patriotic concert. One of the Symphony’s long-standing traditions is its annual Composer’s Award. Established in 1959, this honor is the oldest award of its kind in the nation and is presented to a living American composer who is making a particularly significant contribution in the field of symphonic music. Past recipients include Leroy Anderson, Morton Gould, Benjamin Lees, Jennifer Higdon, and Peter Boyer.
