The Lewisburg Arts Council gratefully acknowledges the generosity of the Woodcock Foundation for the Appreciation of the Arts to support this year’s Music in the Park. The Woodcock Foundation’s mission statement:
So long as there are little children to be introduced to the creative arts and harried adults who missed exposure to great art and literature and timeless music to be shared across all age group, there will be a need for efforts to encourage the appreciation of the arts.
Thank you to the Borough of Lewisburg for its ongoing support of Music in the Park.
You can be a part of supporting the music that you hear—both now and for the future!
