About the Concerts…
Since 1969, artists from an array of genres have been given the freedom to perform their special repertoire of music to the delight of faithful patrons and new fans. This unorthodox approach, refreshingly affordable tickets, and exquisite design of the church provides for an old world ambience that introduces many brilliant young artists. Old First Concerts have helped launch careers of many who have gone on to global distinction such as: The Kronos Quartet, Weslia Whitfield, Ali Akbar Khan; pianists Clive Swansbourne and Jeffrey Kahane; the Lark String Quartet; and guitarist David Tanenbaum, to name a few.
Peruse the schedule and you will find an adventurous selection that ranges from classical recital and chamber performances to blues, folk, avant-garde and jazz, as well as multicultural concerts and world music. Whether you have a discerning musical ear or just enjoy an evening of great entertainment, Old First Concerts offers something to fit your penchant.
