Music at the Red Door

A Community Ministry through Music

Music at the Red Door is a music series that builds bridges between our parish and the community. The name of the series makes reference to our front doors, with their traditional color of welcome and sanctuary. The series has helped to establish St. John’s as a destination for those seeking musical refreshment and excellence, drawing on the existing strengths of our choirs and guest artists, architecture, organ, location, and Anglican heritage.

Music at the Red Door is a unique way to transform lives in the Greater Hartford community:

  • An eclectic mix of events, from classical to jazz, folk, and Gospel, and worship events such as Choral Evensong.
  • Concerts make the music of the organ and choir come alive, with innovative and varying programs, such as organ with sacred dance, silent film with improvised organ accompaniment, and our very popular Pipes Alive! half-hour concerts.
  • The Concert Series invests significantly in our youth, the future of music, making possible a twice-monthly theory class and annual choir camp for our Youth Choir.
  • Concerts are open and accessible to all, with no admission charge.

We hope to see you at the Red Door often! Be sure to check out our events, and click learn how you can help as well.
