Five Fridays

April 2023: Yu-Ting Chen, violin; Clancy Newman, cello; Natalie Zhu, piano

The Five Fridays concert series was launched in 2011 as a mission project of Music at St. Paul’s. Its twin goals are to bring discerning audiences into the beautiful sanctuary of St. Paul’s to enjoy excellent chamber music, and to distribute ticket proceeds to two local beneficiary organizations that serve our hungry and unhoused neighbors in NW Philadelphia.  The series has steadily grown in attendance, and concerts have featured a wide variety of instrumental and vocal performances. Typically they take place on the intimate setting of the labyrinth, last 60-90 minutes, and are followed by a reception to greet the artists.
