Donate to the WSO

Music is an essential part of life in the Westmoreland Region.  Not only do we listen to music in our cars, we turn to music in times of happiness, grief, or turmoil.  Classical music in our neighborhoods was formed because of a need felt by many fellow music lovers.  Our orchestra is able to make a positive impact on our region by enriching the lives of our audience.

Community involvement is critical to our mission, especially when it comes to education.  Through our Academy of Music, the orchestra is reaching young students all the way to adults in music education and performance.  Not only are students learning about their instruments, they learn how to engage and participate together.  You can be part of this legacy of music by giving the gift of music.

The WSO is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit.  Gifts are accepted securely online or by mailing a check to 951 Old Salem Road, Greensburg, PA 15601.
