Fine Arts Concerts at St. Thomas

St. Thomas is pleased to provide concerts for the church and community, featuring quality soloists or ensembles. We strive for excellence and variety in our choice of performers, and on most occasions will ask only for a door offering. For an extra blessing, take the opportunity to invite a neighbor or co-worker to enjoy a concert with you, and give the gift of music to someone else.
