The St. Peter’s Musical Arts Concert Series helps to support the arts in the surrounding Lancaster area. At the same time as providing enriching programs for local residents to experience, the Series also provides a performance venue for musicians and other artists from the surrounding area. This year, we return to our in-person concert offerings. All concerts are held in the sanctuary at St. Peter’s Lutheran.
