Beautiful Music in a Beautiful Church
Welcome to the 3rd Season of the Stella Concert Series!
With the mission of Celebrating Music, Making Community, the Stella Series offers free concerts and musical events open to all in the visually and acoustically beautiful Star of the Sea Church.
This season begins with Music & Mary, our 3rd exploration of music honoring Our Lady throughout history. In December are community favorites Lessons & Carols and Sing in the New Year.
In 2018, the Mardi Gras Jazz Brunch features live Dixieland music, and our choir joins with St. Adelaide's to present two performances of two rarely heard gems - Pärt's Stabat Mater and Franck's Seven Last Words.
The season closes with a newcomer to the series, the Bay Colony Brass, on of the only large brass ensembles in the country, for a concert of brass and organ music.
