Friends of Music and the Arts at St. Andrew’s

2023-2024 Concert Series schedule

Dear Friends,

We’ve reached an important milestone: our *second* full concert season since the beginning of the pandemic, which must mean that our newfound momentum was not a fluke, but a testament to the strong support in this parish and beyond for making high quality art accessible for the entire community. 

One of my great joys in serving St. Andrew’s is witnessing this parish’s commitment to paying artists fairly, and FoMA takes this mission seriously. To do this, of course, requires a commitment from as many of you as are able. I really hope you’ll consider increasing your gift either in the plate or in the mail if you’ve donated before, or consider throwing even a dollar or two in the pot if you haven’t.

Our sincere hope is that anyone who sees our doors can be exposed to great art for free, and this starts with supporting our artists. 

Meanwhile, if you’re new here, we’re really glad you found us, and hope you’ll come back for more free concerts throughout this season and beyond. We also hope you’ll come see us on Sunday mornings, when our choir and organ support music every week and where everyone, of all ages and from all backgrounds, is truly welcome.
