Music at St. Alban’s and Its Coming Season

by | Sep 1, 2021

Music at St. Alban’s (M@SA) is back–live! After a long interruption caused by the pandemic, the program is pleased to announce the resumption of in-person concerts this coming fall.

The 2021-22 season will be the program’s 17th since its founding in 2005. That includes this past year’s broadcast of five “virtual” concerts, four in collaboration with classical-music station WDAV (89.9 FM). All attracted large audiences of loyal listeners, to whom many thanks.

Over the years the program has grown to eight concerts per season and expanded the types of music it presents, as seen in the variety on this year’s calendar. It offers performances to youth groups, some of those in collaboration with the local branch of the county library with the backing of the Town of Davidson, and has also established links with friends at Gethsemane Baptist Church and plans a third concert in collaboration with GBC in 2021-22. For a number of years M@SA has received support from the county’s Arts and Science Council and from numerous individual donors.

All concerts listed will take place on Sunday afternoons at St. Alban’s Episcopal Church in Davidson at 3:00 p.m. Each concert will be preceded at 2:20 by a free youth concert featuring local music students on various instruments.
