The 2020-2021 season was to have been our tenth anniversary season. However the COVID-19 pandemic impacted all in-person activities at Saint Paul’s, and it was determined that the most prudent course of action was to cancel the entire season.
The ubiquity of “virtual” concerts during this year of closure have persuaded us that a single concert for this season would be not only possible, but valued as a way to continue our support for our beneficiaries, to offer a performing opportunity to struggling artists, and to remain connected with our loyal sponsors and audience members.
We are therefore excited to announce that a virtual Five Fridays concert will be streamed to ticket holders, with all proceeds benefitting Face to Face Germantown and Philadelphia Interfaith Hospitality Network.
To all our artists, sponsors, and audience members: we are deeply grateful for your support to date. We hope to see you again in the 2021-22 season, and invite you to stay connected with Music at Saint Paul’s via our occasional newsletter (sign up here). In the meantime, we invite you to consider directly contributing to our two beneficiary organizations, Face to Face Germantown and the Philadelphia Interfaith Hospitality Network, which need our support more than ever at this time.
Generous business and individual sponsors have underwritten the expenses of running the series each season, allowing the net proceeds from ticket sales to be passed on to our two beneficiaries. Please contact the Director of Music if you have questions about becoming a Five Fridays sponsor in the future.
