Five Fridays 2017-18

FF logo2017-18 Season

Welcome to the seventh season in the Five Fridays benefit concert series.  Concerts are held by candlelight in the beautiful sanctuary of Saint Paul’s, typically in the intimate setting of the labyrinth at the west end of the church. Each concert is followed by a reception to greet the artists.  Contributions from our 2017-18 sponsors help to defray costs, and together with ticket revenue, allow Saint Paul’s to pass on all net proceeds to Saint Paul’s outreach partners, Philadelphia Interfaith Hospitality Network and Face to Face Germantown.   This is a unique opportunity to hear world-class music while supporting good work in our local community.

General Admission: $25
Students: $5
Season Pass (5 concerts): $100  –  Purchase Season Pass until November 17th
