Donate to the WSO

The Westmoreland Symphony Orchestra’s success is contributed to an enthusiastic group of loyal subscribers and single ticket buyers—covering about one-third of the cost of producing live music concerts. The balance is covered by individual and corporate contributions and sponsorships as well as private foundations and government grants.

Community involvement in supporting this regional cultural asset is critical to our future. We seek to fulfill our mission of serving people of the Westmoreland County and the region by providing excellence in musical performance and educational programs. This goal can only be assured throughout the coming years with the generous support of individuals committed to music and this region.

The Westmoreland Symphony Orchestra is a 501 (c) 3 approved non profit. We accept secure on-line donations via PayPal or mail a check to the WSO, 951 Old Salem Road, Greensburg, PA 15601.
