The Trust Performing Arts Center has been open less than a month, but it’s fitting quite nicely into the downtown arts scene.
During its first First Friday, April 5, more than 600 people came to check out the place. And that makes the folks at the Lancaster Bible College, which runs the Trust, quite happy.
“There’s something very vibrant about downtown Lancaster, and we want our students to be a part of that,” says Robert Bigley, head of the music performance program at Lancaster Bible College. ”We want them to get out of the church bubble, to get out in the real world.”
Like Millersville University, which runs The Ware Center, located across a parking lot from the Trust, LBC wanted a satellite location that would engage students and audiences apart from the campus.
Coming downtown was the goal.
