Amazing (first time ever) news! The Noontime Concerts 2018 Summer Fund Drive has met it’s $18,000 goal in advance of the target date, September 21. Needless to say, exceeding the goal is even better. So we’ll keep up the momentum until the official end of summer on September 21. And with that proclamation, I will get straight to the point with two simple requests.

For those of you who have already expressed your generosity and support this summer, the staff and board of Noontime Concerts are deeply grateful. And isn’t it wonderful to experience brilliant world-class performances at Noontime Concerts each week knowing that you help make them happen?
Thanks to your ongoing financial commitment and the expertise of our Artistic Advisory Council, I am delighted to offer you a 3-month series each Tuesday in Old Saint Mary’s Cathedral and once a month on Sundays at The San Francisco Mint. Each of the upcoming programs will be filled with rich and vibrant repertoire and be presented by extraordinarily talented local and international touring artists.
This fall the emphasis is on chamber music which is often described as “making music among friends” and we are featuring some amazing duos, trios, quartets, and quintets who will play pieces by many of your favorite composers. In addition, we will be delighted to introduce you to some new and original works.
The concert calendar includes all of the details for this new, exciting, and colorful season. You can also access up-to-the-minute concert information, videos, biographies, and composer information on this website.
Remember, the Summer Fund Drive ends September 21. You can help take us over the top in these ways.
