Our Venue
The original site for our series in 1988, Old Saint Mary’s Cathedral has been home to Noontime Concerts for more than fifteen 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.
