2020-2021 Season

As of May 11, 2021, we are planning for concerts in May and June. Due to the uncertainty of COVID-19 and its ongoing impact, all plans are tentative. The Board of Directors continues to monitor the situation and will post all updates here, on our home page and on Facebook.++

Patrons should bring a sweater or light jacket to the concert since we will leave doors to the outside open in the sanctuary for better air flow. And, of course, social distancing and properly worn masks will be required.
