Red Door Concerts at St. Mary's
As part of our outreach and to help raise funds for those in need, musician parishioners and our friends in the community offer a variety of concerts on a quarterly basis. These range from purely classical concerts, to an evening of love-themed jazz for Valentines Day, to a musical potpourri to musical celebration of Mud Season. We also host our annual Red Door Community Carol Sing, featuring a sing-along of traditional carols and seasonal favorites, short performances by local musicians, and other surprises. Each event benefits a local charity or organization in need.
Our Red Door Concert series was put on hold for 2020, but we're excited to announce that it has restarted with our September 2021 Red Door Concert, "C'mon! Get Happy!" Planning is underway for our Sixth Annual Red Door Community Carol Sing as well. As always, admission is by free-will donation, with all funds being given to local charities and community organizations.
