Music At Noon is meeting the needs of those who desire beauty and tranquility in the middle of their day; it is also meeting the needs of musicians who desire to communicate their art to the community. Since 2002, thousands of music lovers have entered Westminster’s peaceful, Byzantine-Romanesque sanctuary to hear a wide variety of inspiring music. These free Wednesday noon concerts include classics, jazz, pops, silent films with pipe organ accompaniment, Broadway, opera, folk, USAF ensembles, world-music, vocalists, and more. Artists include pianists, singers, chamber musicians, choirs, organists, string players, brass & woodwind players, guitarists, folk and world musicians, and more. So bring a friend and a bag lunch and see why M.A.N. is “the biggest kept secret in Midtown.”
