Symphony of Home

Music for Everyone Welcomes Refugee and Immigrant Students with the gift of Music

Lancaster: A City of Welcome. 

We are proud to be part of a community in which all are welcome and valued for their contributions to our city by sharing cultures and traditions that make us stronger and richer for the experience.

Symphony of Home is a program that cultivates community through music by providing complimentary lessons to students from refugee and immigrant families in Lancaster. Students experience not only progress with their instrument, but also growth in self-confidence, setting and achieving goals, and collaborating with others. Every year there are several events and concerts where participating students are able to show and celebrate their progress, connect with the community, and most importantly: have fun!

“Lancaster is home to all who are here, and this program exemplifies and affirms that in so many beautiful ways,” said program coordinator, Jordan Redfield. “Everyone in our community brings something important to the table, and music is an incredible medium for celebrating that truth.”
