Music at Noon


Free Concerts Wednesdays Noon to 1 p.m.

                                    “Music for a while shall all your cares beguile…”

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, and more. Artists include pianists, singers, chamber musicians, choirs, organists, string players, brass & woodwind players, guitarists, and more. So bring a friend and a bag lunch and see why M.A.N. is “the biggest kept secret in Midtown.”

“Keyboard Kid” Kevin Sun Returns after 10 years!
Remember the astounding concert we heard on March 19, 2008? It got Sacramento Bee's attention and they published a story with photos. It was Music At Noon's largest audience with perhaps 600 or more in attendance.

Since their performance ten years ago, all three “kids”, now in their mid-20’s, have added to their successes in various other disciplines, and one of them, Kevin Sun, will play an all-memorized program of Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms. You won’t want to miss this amazing event! Bring a bus-load!
