In the Community
The LCHS Fine & Performing Arts program has a rich history in the Lancaster County community. We strive to bring the arts to children, our high school students and the community. A diverse selection of programs and activities transcends age and proves that everyone can benefit from the arts.
American Cancer Society
The Big Fish Cast, Crew and Orchestra raised $700 for the local American Cancer Society chapter through a daffodil sale that was held during the Spring Musical production of Big Fish. One of the songs in the musical is "Daffodils" and during the scene, audience members had the opportunity to raise the bundles of daffodils in the air to be a part of the show. The money raised will be used for cancer research and treatment.

Tri-M Honor Society in the Community
Lancaster Catholic High School and its Tri-M Music Honor Society dedicated the 2016-17 year raising money for the Crispus Attucks Community Center of Lancaster. The center hosts after-school events for urban children to promote their cultural awareness and build their futures through music. Tri-M also joined up with Carol Rae Culliton, her son Adam '07 and their Robert J. Gunterberg Charitable Foundation throughout the year with Crispus Attucks. They raised $5,750 through bake sales and fundraisers and also donated drums for the Infamous Unstoppable Drill Team & Drum Squad.
"We are so blessed to partner with Lancaster Catholic's FPA program to help spread the joy of music throughout Lancaster County. What Tony Brill and his students are doing with Crispus Attucks is truly inspiring."
-Carol Rae Culliton
Lancaster Catholic High School is proud to partner with Lancaster Mennonite School through our marching band, color guard and orchestra programs. Each year we will perform in a combined concert to support Arts Scholarships at both schools.
"Going to Lancaster Mennonite every Wednesday has been a great musical experience. I've enjoyed not only playing music, but also meeting new friends."

Instrumental Music in our Partner Schools
Lancaster Catholic is proud to offer free instrumental music lessons to students in third grade through eighth grade in our six partner elementary schools. Over 250 students take advantage of this wonderful program.
“When this instrumental program was offered for my kids, I was thrilled. Music is so important. When a child learns to see and feel music, their world changes. They see ways to express their feelings, their creativity grows, their minds expand to seek new ways to learn and express themselves. Music teaches children to solve problems and work with a diverse group of people. It is a special gift from God!"
-Miss Brenda Weaver, Principal, Resurrection Catholic School
