Sacred Music at the Red Door is the music series of St. John’s Episcopal Church, West Hartford, building bridges between our parish and the community.
A bit of history…
Our expanded series of musical offerings to the Parish and wider community began in September 2011. The name of the series makes reference to our front doors, with their traditional color of welcome and sanctuary. The series has helped to establish St. John’s as a destination for those seeking musical refreshment and excellence, drawing on the existing strengths of our choirs and guest artists, architecture, organ, location, and Anglican heritage.
Sacred Music at the Red Door is a unique way to transform lives in the Greater Hartford community:
- Concerts make the music of the organ and choir come alive, with innovative and varying programs, such as organ with sacred dance, silent film with improvised organ accompaniment, and our very popular Pipes Alive! half-hour concerts.
- The Concert Series invests significantly in our youth, the future of music, making possible a twice-monthly theory class and annual choir camp for our Youth Choir.
- Concerts are open and accessible to all, with no admission charge.
