Welcome to our 2020/2021 Season

We are excited to be continuing our residency on the grounds of La Merced Chapel and Corpus Christi Church, centrally located in the “West Wynwood” neighborhood of Allapattah.

Ever mindful of pandemic challenges, we have added another venue onsite – outdoors – for drive-in concerts and socially distanced seating around the steps of La Merced. We are finding these to be effective ways to stay safe but still connected, to speak together the language of the world-class music that you expect from us.

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.

The Emmett Cohen Trio – Jazz Meditations will be an outdoor concert on the steps of La Merced Chapel. This “plaza and lawn” format allows our audience to experience live music in the company of a community of music lovers – while following the best practices for social distancing and safety. Please buy tickets in advance online or at the parish office (3220 NW 7 Avenue).

Park in the main parking lot (turn in from NW 7 Ave or NW 34 St). Bring your own folding lawn chairs – we have a limited number of plastic chairs. Sit with your family, children are welcome, and maintain social distance from other groups. Everyone must wear a mask, have temperatures taken, and use disinfectant hand cleaner. We will not have: reserved seating, intermission, or after-concert receptions. Feel free to bring bottled beverages (no glass), and snacks. And please clean up your areas at the end of the concert.

In case of rain, the concert will move inside the main church, with proper distancing observed.
