Welcome to the 2016-2017 Season!

The nineteenth season of the Midtown Concerts begins on September 15, 2016. Every Thursday at 1:15, anyone is welcome to the chapel in St. Bartholomew's Church for a gratis concert from September through July.

Our full season schedule is now available here.

The Midtown Concerts series offer audiences a taste of the rich musical traditions that call across the centuries in the heart of Midtown Manhattan. Now entering our nineteenth season, we pride ourselves on featuring exemplary established and emerging early music ensembles from New York and beyond. Each program features unique historically informed repertoire on period instruments.

The Midtown Concerts series takes place in the chapel at the beautiful St. Bartholomew's Church on 50th St. and Park Avenue.

Midtown Concerts sponsors lunchtime performances of music of the 18th century and earlier for anyone seeking a respite from the midtown hustle and bustle. Ensembles are chosen by a jury of early-music specialists from the metropolitan area.

Each free concert is 30 to 40 minutes in length; no tickets or reservations are necessary.

All concerts begin at 1:15 pm.
