Check Out our NEW Local Music Collection!

​As part of our ongoing efforts to highlight the vibrant artistic community in and around Havertown, we are proud to announce the debut of a designated Local Music Collection.

Delaware County and the greater Philadelphia area serve as the home of numerous nationally acclaimed recording artists, as well as many independent musicians and groups with loyal local followings. We recognize the influence and contributions these "hometown heroes" make and are proud to showcase and celebrate southeastern Pennsylvania's wealth of musical talent.

If you are a local musician and would like to donate a CD for possible inclusion in the local music collection please contact Chrissy Bellizzi at 610.446.3082 x206 or

 

This initiative is funded by a generous grant from the Haverford Township Civic Council.
