Every Thursday at 12 Noon from September through May (excluding Thanksgiving, the month of January, and the Thursday during Holy Week), Grace Church offers a series of short, 30 minute concerts for the benefit of the downtown Providence community and any visitors that stop by. These programs are informal and feature organ, vocal or instrumental music by our resident musicians as well as guests from around the country. There is a free-will offering to help defray the costs of the series. Feel free to stay for a portion or the entire concert as your schedule allows. Upcoming concerts are posted in the church calendar at the bottom of the website as well as on the Grace Church Facebook page.
UPDATE: Returning to ‘In-Person’ Attendance
Beginning April 15th, Thursdays at Noon Concerts will be returning to our previous ‘in-person’ format, in addition to live-streaming and recording the programs. Precautions and procedures that following current CDC guidelines, such as mandatory mask-wearing and social-distancing, will be in place to ensure the safety of all. Our capacity for the concerts will be limited to 30 people with required pre-registration. If you would like to attend, please email Vince Edwards at email@example.com with your Name and Phone Number.
Please note, if you are not able to attend in person, or prefer not to yet, we will still be live-streaming all concerts going forward. The recordings of the live-streamed concerts will also be made available in the usual places (lower on this webpage, on Facebook
