The Voorhees Society is named after Allentown native Donald Voorhees, the first music director and conductor of the Allentown Symphony Orchestra, who served in this position for 32 years from 1951 to 1983.
Voorhees was the distinguished conductor of the studio orchestra for NBC's award-winning series, The Bell Telephone Hour from its first broadcasts on radio in 1942 until its final television episode in 1968.
Your generosity can transform lives and the community. You can make a gift now, or after your lifetime. Your gift can provide tax savings today, or income for the future. You can donate cash, or appreciated assets. Whatever your goals, we're here to help.
Imagine a world where every school aged child has access to voice and music lessons. Where children grow up learning how to sing and play an instrument. Where a community can experience the expansive range of performing arts presentations within the acoustically perfect Miller Symphony Hall. Together, we can make this world possible. Your planned gift to the Allentown Symphony Association will help protect and preserve orchestral music, the performing arts, music education, and Miller Symphony Hall for future generations.
