Welcome to the
Stella Concert Series

Sancta Maria Maris Stella Parish • 253 Cabot St. Beverly MA 01915

Beautiful Music in a Beautiful Church

This year we continue 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, and this year, also St. John the Evangelist.

St. John's is where we begin this season, with a new family-friendly event: Silent Movie Night (Oct 11), where classic comedies from the silent film era are screened alongside live improvised accompaniment.

We return to St Mary's for a special benefit concert offered by the Catholic Collaborative of Methuen (Nov 18), and our own Winter Sacred Choral Conert (Dec 2), featuring Saint-Saen's Oratorio de Noel and Bach's Cantata 63.

Lessons & Carols are back (Dec 18), as is Sing in the New Year (Dec 31) and our Mardi Gras Jazz Brunch (Feb 26). In the spring we welcome a new group of performers, the New England Chamber Players (Mar 12) and conclude with the return of Music & Mary, celebrating the centennial of the visions at Fatima (Apr 23)
