St. John's Concert Series
2020 – 2021 Season
St. John's Lutheran Church is pleased to announce its 23rd annual season of the Concert Series.
We have exciting news to share!
At a time when we could all use a little inspiration and hope, our annual Concert Series at St. John’s Lutheran Church is back – and in a new and innovative way.
As you can imagine, we’ve made some COVID-compliant adaptations to the schedule and delivery methods of these special performances.
Our first few performances will be available for viewing through our digital and streaming platforms, and you can access them as you would our Sunday morning worship services. Please note that we will have more audio, video, and technical needs for filming so we can bring you the best possible performance online.
We will revisit this online-only method in the near future based on CDC and state-specific regulations. Hopefully, we can all meet in person again soon to enjoy the concerts together, but in the meantime, we plan to be flexible and adaptive to both health and safety guidelines and to the needs and wants of our congregation.
Currently, concerts will be Video Streams filmed in St. John's Historic Sanctuary, located at the corner of Almond and Center in Old Towne Orange.
We welcome you to worship with us at our regular weekend services.

Concert Series Patron Program
We encourage your support by participating in the Patron Program, which funds most of the expenses involved in producing the Concert Series. Since the freewill offerings do not cover the entire costs of the concerts, we need your support to ensure the continuation of this ministry to the community. A listing of all patrons will appear in each concert program. Please refer to the Patron Program Enrollment Form for more details.
