Presenting Quality Classical Music Free to the Public
Noontime Concerts is a 501 (c) (3) charitable educational institution dedicated to the presentation of high-quality classical music performances free to the public. The organization is led by a Board of Directors and an Executive Director.
The original site for our series in 1988, Old Saint Mary’s Cathedral has been home to Noontime Concerts for more than seven years. Concerts are presented weekly in the historic mission and church. We hope to call this marvelous sanctuary our home for many years to come. Audiences have come to cherish the presentation of works often created to be performed as sacred offerings within the majesty and serenity of a setting such as Old Saint Mary’s Cathedral.
Our Endowment and Your Donations
In 2015 Noontime Concerts established its Board-structured endowment fund to ensure an enduring legacy for the concert series many years into the future. Your donations support our operations as we support and present the extraordinary work of local and international touring artists. However, your legacy donation in any amount now has a home in our ongoing effort to ensure that this music will be available to the public today, next week, and for many years to come.
Artistic Advisory Council
Noontime Concerts’ commitment to programming excellence is expressed each week by a diverse community of professional musicians. Our Artistic Advisory Council serves to develop and deepen a robust and collaborative relationship with musicians and academicians whose expertise is essential to accessing the best musical talent and crafting the ongoing musical programs at Noontime Concerts. The panel meets regularly and to offer recommendations and to review and evaluate various aspects of program direction and development for the series.
