For over 30 years, the Bethesda Music Series has presented 4–5 concerts each season featuring local and international musicians while raising funds for area social service organizations and sharing great music with the people of New Haven.
Wanting to reach out to the community in as inclusive a manner as possible, we have made all concerts free and open to the public. A freewill offering is collected and donations are accepted. Faithful donors underwrite the expenses of the series, allowing us to give 100% of all freewill offerings to the charities.
The Music Series has played to thousands of people presenting a range of music including Caribbean steel drums, harpsicord and organ, choir concerts, operas, string quartets, and much more. Although the program changes, what stays constant is the dedication to presenting artistic experiences of the highest quality in a welcoming environment.
Please join us in our mission, we look forward to your attendance at all of our concerts — whatever form they may take.
