The Wednesday Club for the Performing Arts, the oldest music organization in the United States, was organized on May 17, 1882 and incorporated exclusively for charitable and educational purposes in 1915. In May, 2015, this unique organization celebrated 133 years of showcasing its performing members in recitals and its 127th season of presenting renowned artists on a concert subscription series, a series presented at the Forum Auditorium in Harrisburg since 1931. The Emerging Artist Concert Series, featuring young musicians who are starting their professional performance careers, was initiated in 2010. The Wednesday Club’s mission has remained intact since 1882:  to promote and support the performance of classical music by outstanding musicians and to make classical music accessible to people of all walks of life. The Wednesday Club has been especially vigilant in promoting and supporting young people in their musical pursuits.
