Concert Series

Welcome to the 31st anniversary season of the Central concert series! This concert season is meant to be part of Central’s 175th anniversary year, with events that celebrate music in the life of the church, both locally at Central, and for all believers.

Our concerts are for our community and are free to the public. We invite you to come, and encourage you to bring your family, friends, colleagues, and neighbors to experience these outstanding performances at the intersection of art and faith.

The words and melodies of great hymns are a rich treasury that speak messages of encouragement, consolation, prayer, and praise to our hearts. In celebration of our 175th anniversary, Central’s choirs and instrumental musicians will lead us through psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs both old and new. Bring an open heart, mind, and spirit as we join our voices together to sing the songs of our faith!

The season of Christmas touches our hearts though moments of both quiet stillness and resounding exultation. Join us as we adore the nativity through Britten’s sublime Ceremony of Carols and proclaim the good news heard in Rutter’s exuberant Gloria! Featuring Central’s Chancel Choir, Children’s Choir, Chancel Ringers, and Brass Choir, come and gladden your heart through the message of these works and singing the beloved carols of the season.

Artists have a unique ability to inspire us when their gifts act as a reflection of God’s presence in their lives. In this event, musicians, writers, artists, and performers from within our church community will share their craft with us, and tell the stories behind their work. Let your imagination soar as Central’s artists create a tapestry of divine expression.
