St. Noel Concert Series

After a long hiatus due to the pandemic, the beloved St. Noel Concert Series returns this Fall! 

This year, we welcome a mix of familiar and favorite artists and some brand new faces to the Series, each bringing a unique and inspiring gift of musical beauty for all to enjoy.

Admission is always free and open to the public; a freewill offering will be collected at each performance to support the artists and the Series.


With tremendous gratitude to our 2022-23 Series Sponsors:

Steve and Carolyn Kuerbitz

and all those who have contributed to the Series!
