The Iris Trio, appearing at St. Peter’s at Noon, November 19

Several times a year St. Peter’s hosts Center City Concerts at St. Peter’s, where musical programs are played — free of charge — for all who love music and appreciate its beauty and power.

But moving into our sixth season, Center City Concerts has been — if you will pardon the pun — playing it a bit low key, and the time has come to hit some big notes.

With Charlotte in the midst of a commercial boom, and with so much growth and so many new faces at St.Peter’s and in the city at large, we have hopes of filling the pews during the five concerts we will host this 2018-2019 season. And you can help us do exactly that, not only for this season, but for all that follow.

How?

By giving yourselves an hour of incredible music, and by getting the word out to your friends, neighbors, and coworkers that here is an opportunity for them to enjoy an amazing noontime respite of music that feeds the soul and mind. Come join us, and bring them with you.

Our concerts are free of charge, but we still need to raise funds for publicity and to pay our musicians. But here’s the thing: If we can fill the church, we can fill our coffers because we know how generous and appreciative our audience members are.

November marks the first of three monthly concerts in a row, beginning with the internationally acclaimed Iris Trio playing clarinet, viola, and piano on November 11, followed by The Burli Singers’ always wonderful Christmas Concert December 17, and our annual Martin Luther King Day concert on January 21, 2019. (Stay tuned for news about our May spring concert with The AW Duo, our artists in residence.)
