The ASO, America’s continuously performing community orchestra, presents audiences with high-quality orchestral music throughout Central Pennsylvania and remains committed to community and educational outreach. They often perform at Mishler Theatre, an elaborate Beaux-Arts theatre, built in 1906 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Founded in 1928, the Gerhart String Ensemble has grown over the years to become a full orchestra. Once relying on community volunteers, even donating their own money to purchase music, the Symphony now employs over 75 professional musicians. To this end, the Symphony has gained recognition for its musical diversity by performing both classical and popular works featuring talented local artists and nationally acclaimed musicians.
