St. Philip’s Recitals began in the summer of 2018 as small intimate-interactive concerts in the living room of the Rectory adjacent to the church. Seating was limited to 20.
Over the next four seasons ambitions and expectations grew. Then came the pandemic.
Small intimate-interactive concerts are back; but with some changes. Changes for the better, we think.
We’ve changed the venue from the rectory to the church. The chancel acoustics delight performers and audiences alike. Seating at the foot of the chancel steps retains all the intimacy of the Rectory Recitals while accommodating a larger audience in greater comfort.
When we gathered in the Rectory which could only hold 20, we had to sell tickets to help offset payments to the performers. Now, able to seat a larger audience in the church, we’re better able to follow our convictions. No one is excluded because they can’t afford a ticket. There are no tickets.
Admission to Chancel Concerts is by donation. Pay what you can. Give as your resources allow you.
