Board of Directors

Mario Galante · Chair
Community Volunteer

Community is defined as a feeling of fellowship with others as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests and goals. Spending one night on the Levitt Lawn, one can certainly feel that that definition applies to the crowd gathered in this unique energetic environment. Levitt is a place to enjoy a wide variety of music and spend a wonderful summer evening. However it does not stop there. I love Levitt for the community it has created that is different from anything else. A common bond of purpose, friendship, and euphoria permeates the atmosphere on the lawn. I love being part of the board and watching the fires of Levitt grow and burn brighter every year. The community and corporate support is amazing. But the true success of Levitt lies in the community that gathers at every concert. The many familiar faces and the many new faces we see every night. Come join us on the lawn, support the vision of great live music in an awesome setting, have some great fun and be part of the force that keeps the community growing and the fires of Levitt burning. See you on the lawn!!!

When I attended my first show at Levitt on the lawn, I was completely blown away. It was such a great experience, that I really wanted to become part of it all. For me, it was the setting on the lawn, the beautiful stage, the Stacks in the background, the phenomenal sound system, the beautiful lawn and of course all of the amazing acts and talent of all Genre’s and to think it’s free for the public to bring their lawn chairs, sit with friends and family, be able to drink the beverage of choice, enjoy good food while you sit and listen to amazing music on a beautiful warm summer night! Wait, you can even bring your dogs as well!! I like to think of Levitt as the Happiest Place in the Northeast, kind of like the Disney of the Northeast. Where else can people go, relax with their friends, in a beautiful setting and most importantly forget about their hectic day or their troubles they could be experiencing in their life for just a few hours. Music is a healer! I knew I wanted to be involved and also had an opportunity to represent my company, Mack Trucks who has sponsored The Mack Truck Stop concession stand. I currently have three straight years running of attending all of the shows and I love Levitt. I am honored to be on the Board representing Levitt! Thank you and see you on the lawn!

Philip Gauffreau · Treasurer
Principal & Discipline Leader; Geotechnical Engineering Services; Maser Consulting P.A.

My involvement with Levitt Pavilion Steel Stacks began as the geotechnical engineer for the project. I can remember opening night with Marcia Ball, and how excited we were to see this fantastic project come to fruition. Later, I was asked to join the Board, and I jumped at the opportunity. Since then, I can say my involvement with Levitt Pavilion has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. I truly believe in Levitt’s mission to “Bring communities together thru free, live music.” I feel we accomplish this goal every night we have a show, and the Levitt Pavilion has become a wonderful asset to the Lehigh Valley.

Levitt is such an wonderful charity to support- bringing community together with free music. As a Southside resident of Bethlehem, I feel blessed to have this wonderful venue in our own backyard. I have been fortunate to have been able to travel to other Levitt pavilions across the country- but ours is definitely the crown jewel. Mocha & I look forward to seeing everyone on the lawn this summer or at a Friends of Levitt backstage event!

One of my favorite ways to spend a summer evening is sitting on the lawn at the Levitt Pavilion Steel Stacks with a great wine and great friends. Love it at Levitt!

Donna Taggart
President
Taggart Associates

As President of Taggart Associates, a consulting firm “helping communities build unique urban environments”, combined with my love of music, serving on the Levitt Board is a natural fit. Living only two blocks from the pavilion, I actually never have to leave my back yard to hear the wonderful bands that perform all summer long. What draws me to Levitt though is sitting with my friends and family down on the lawn in front of the blast furnaces enjoying music together in an amazing urban environment, and making new friends along the way. I am thrilled to be part of the Levitt Pavilion Steel Stacks family.

I love how our community can get together and enjoy the artists, the weather, and each other’s company for three seasons of the year at the Levitt Pavilion.
