NEW NAME – NEW VENUE – NEW SEASON
Saint Martha Concerts is now “Martha/Mary Concerts” – celebrating our new venue and expanded programs at the art-filled Spanish Baroque La Merced Chapel and adjacent Corpus Christi Church, conveniently located in “West Wynwood,” our new historic Allapattah location.
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 groups to keep our audience reflective of our diverse South Florida community.
This year we offer two new special Saturday events (the Salon Series) that enable artists and audiences – seated at tables with champagne and dessert – 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. Art will be displayed in exhibit space at Corpus Christi Church and our popular StarBurst Concert will be presented again in May.
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, both small or large, are most appreciated.
