Arts at St. Bede's

Welcome to the Arts at St. Bede’s. 

The performances that make up our long-running concert series vary from the intimate to the large scale, from instrumental to choral, from early to contemporary. 

Our concert space is warm and hospitable, with a lovely acoustic. Parking is free and plentiful, and each event is followed by a reception in our parish hall with opportunities to chat with each other and the performers.

In this series we seek to engage our parishioners, our neighbors, and the wider community in the enjoyment and appreciation of the beauty and mystery of human experience as expressed through the extraordinary medium of music.
