Music At First

Music at First is a monthly concert series featuring chamber music performed by local and nationally recognized musicians. Concerts include a wide variety of classical and folk music that span genres and centuries of music heard around the globe.  All concerts are free and open to the public.  Support for Music at First comes in part by individual patrons and donors from the community.   Contributions are accepted at the door at each performance.   Please come and enjoy the marvelous sound of music in a beautiful and acoustically pleasing space.

If you would like more information about upcoming concerts, email us with your request.  If you would like to become a Patron of Music at First in this eighteenth season (2017-2018), there are two ways to do so. You may mail a check made out to First Presbyterian Church to the address at the very bottom of this screen and specify ‘Music at First’ in the memo line, or you may give online (be sure the “Music at First” is specified).
