Music has been an integral part of the worship and ministry of St. Andrew’s Church throughout its long history. The “Music at St. Andrew’s Series” seeks to continue that tradition by offering high-quality, affordably-priced opportunities for people to enjoy excellent music in the congregation’s historic location.
The program was inaugurated in October 2011 with a concert by Canadian pianist and Gryphon Trio member Jamie Parker. More recent offerings have included a choral concert headlined by Canadian opera starts Russell Braun and Monica Whicher, a musical tribute to Oscar Peterson by legendary Canadian jazz pianist Oiver Jones, and a Mardi Gras Gospel Sing featuring roots music icon Ken Whiteley.
In addition to evening concerts, “Music at St. Andrew’s”offers a series of Friday Noontime Recitals in the fall (Oct. – Nov.) and in the spring (Mar. – May). These fifty-minute recitals present a variety of young artists and veteran professional musicians and most often feature our Bösendorfer Imperial grand piano. Admission is free.
