Our Funds

Gretna Music Fund

About the Organization: 

Music in Gretna logoGretna Music presents world-class classical and jazz musicians in live performances of timeless music at our Music at Gretna festival each August, and at Elizabethtown College. Our mission is to delight audiences with great enduring music performed by excellent musicians in beautiful settings.  We exist to serve the music and enrich the lives of all who listen.

We pride ourselves in keeping the barriers to experiencing great music performance low with $1 tickets for children to most classical concerts, special family pricing, Pay-What-You-Will pricing for summer classical concerts, half-price tickets for ages 19-26 and reasonably priced standard tickets.

We also facilitate appearances of our artists in education program (since 2006).  Over 3,500 Lancaster County elementary, middle school and high school students have enjoyed master classes, performances and assembly programs with our world-class musicians.

Our programs maintain and perpetuate performance traditions recognized as the highest and most profound in western music.


Why is endowment important to your mission?

Gretna Music enjoys strong support from the residents of Lancaster County.  The largest proportion of our donors and audience lives in Lancaster.  Many of our board members live and work in Lancaster County, and our offices are located there as well. Given our presence in the county, as well as our obvious impact on residents, it makes sense to have an endowment based in Lancaster County.  We also believe many potential donors will be inspired to contribute to our endowment when they know that their contributions will remain in the county.  Through our association with LCCF we anticipate an increase in awareness of our programs and their positive impact in Lancaster County.
