SCRANTON -- It's the end of an era for classical music in northeastern Pennsylvania.

The Northeastern Pennsylvania Philharmonic held its final performance Saturday night in Scranton.

The last concert comes after financial troubles over the years.

It was a packed house at the People's Security Bank Theater at Lackawanna College for the final show.

WNEP-TV has been a proud sponsor of the Philharmonic over the years, and we wish the musicians all the best.

    This is a terrible loss. If this had been a sports team instead of a performing arts organization, I daresay that there would have been all sorts of fundraising. What a shame. Best wishes to all of the talented artists.

        A century ago, robber barons like the Rockefellers and Carnegies gave the common people museums, libraries, and hospitals. Today’s robber barons give us casinos, luxury golf resorts and aggressive reality-TV shows. Maybe the lead trumpet can toss us some paper towels to wipe up the wreckage of a once-proud culture.
