Trinity Concert Series

At this time, the 2020-21 Trinity Concert Series is on hold, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As soon as information becomes available on when Trinity Church will reopen for public worship and concerts, we will update this posting. 

This annual series is eagerly anticipated by members of Boston’s vibrant community of music lovers. The events offered by singers and instrumentalists in H.H. Richardson’s architectural masterpiece draw audiences from across New England. Handel's Messiah, Candlelight Carols, Good Friday Concert and the Spring Concert are beloved Boston traditions in the heart of Copley Square. 

As Trinity's 1926 Skinner organ nears the completion of its historic renovation, we look forward to a series of celebratory recitals and concerts featuring the instrument, when that becomes safe and possible. Our Fridays at Trinity organ recital seriesone of the most successful weekly organ series in the country, hosts 35 recitalists per year from around the globe. Our plan is to resume this series, even if virtually, during Fall 2020. 

 

Performances on our Concert Series in recent years have featured the Trinity Choirs and Orchestra performing works such the Brahms Requiem, Britten Company of Heaven, Rachmaninoff Vespers and Bach Mass in B Minor.

We have also been honored to host an impressive list of visiting soloists and ensembles from around the world, including Chanticleer, the Choir of St. Paul’s Cathedral, London, the Yale Schola Cantorum, and the Boston Camerata.
