“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent.” -Victor Hugo

Welcome to Fine Arts at First!

 Fine Arts at First has reached a milestone! The 2017-2018 Series marks our 25th season of concerts at First Lutheran Church. Our mission continues to be dedicated towards enriching the cultural and spiritual experience of our audiences through the arts by presenting distinguished guest artists known locally, nationally, and internationally. Performances are presented in our nave filled with history, unique architecture, and a magnificent pipe organ that is regarded as one of the finest instruments in Central Pennsylvania. We invite you to join us in celebrating as God’s people the richness of our musical and artistic heritage. All concerts are free and open to the public. Freewill offerings are received to help defray the operating expenses of our programs. Receptions hosted by the Fine Arts Committee follow each concert for our audiences to greet the artists and enjoy fellowship and dessert.

As an outreach ministry of First Lutheran Church, Fine Arts at First supports a local cause or charitable organization each season by donating all the proceeds received at one of our concerts to the designated recipient. To date, we are pleased to have raised $29,682 for local worthy causes over the past 24 years!

Our artist series is supported entirely by the freewill offerings received at performances and by the generous contributions of our patrons who provide the foundation for our success. To support our series held from September through April and to receive mailings of events, please call the church office at (717) 249-3310 Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., email, or complete this form and mail it to the church.
