May 17, 2020 is the Wednesday Club's 138th birthday!
The stage was set for the Wednesday Club in the late 1870s by some
activist ladies in Harrisburg who were hearing of preparations for an opera
house (The Met) in NYC, and the formation of the Boston Symphony and other
music organizations in Oregon, Maine, Boston, and PA. They wanted to
share this awakening to the "finer things of life" in the Harrisburg
community. So, the first meeting was held in the fall of 1881 at the home
of Miss Mira Lloyd Dock on North Front Street. On May 17, 1882, the first
regular meeting of this music club took place at Miss Dock's home.
Thus began the amazing life of one, if not the only, continuously
operating music club in the entire world!
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE WEDNESDAY CLUB and its thousands upon
thousands of performers and audiences for these past 138 years!
