Our 2019/2020 Season
Martha/Mary Concerts celebrates its second season at the art-filled Spanish Baroque La Merced Chapel and adjacent historic Corpus Christi Church, centrally located in the “West Wynwood” neighborhood of Allapattah, with ample free, fenced, adjacent parking.
We present “world class music at movie ticket prices” and the “popcorn” (at after concert receptions) is free. We are determinedly not religious, but inevitably spiritual. No one is ever turned away from a concert for inability to pay, and we actively partner with schools and community groups to keep our audience reflective of our diverse South Florida community.
Our four-concert season includes two Sunday concerts in the Main Church and two in the Chapel. This year we continue to develop our “Saturday Salons” with two special events that enable artists and audiences to interact less formally, surrounded by a major art collection. Our after-concert receptions will be held at La Merced Chapel.
Through our partnership with Corpus Christi Church and Colonial Florida Cultural Heritage Center, combined with Barry University’s Music Department, we are expanding our work with students. Our popular StarBurst Concert will be presented again in the spring.
Volunteers from all of the partners in this endeavor are working hard like Martha-of-Bethany to bring you the Mary-of-Bethany spirit, a community speaking the universal language of beautiful music. We are a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation, which enables us to keep our costs to a minimum. We welcome your support – all donations, small or large, are most appreciated.
