Friends of Music at Emanuel is a non-profit organization founded in 2011 to bring a highly artistic chamber music series to Emanuel Lutheran Church for the benefit of the Manchester/Greater Hartford community.
For generations, Emanuel has been known in the area as “the singing church,” a name that reflects both the wonderful resonance of the church’s acoustics and a lively music-making tradition. The Friends of Music at Emanuel chamber music series,builds on this great tradition by showcasing the finest musicians in the area and from around the world in a free concert series at Emanuel Lutheran Church of Manchester.
Emanuel’s acoustics are the perfect backdrop for a remarkable instrument collection, which includes a beautifully restored 1893 Steinway “D” concert grand, David Jacques Ways harpsichord, and Casavant pipe organ. Musicians and concert-goers alike have acclaimed Emanuel as a premiere destination for chamber music.
All concerts are completely free to the public, and supported by the generous donations of music lovers. To make a tax-deductible donation to the Friends of Music at Emanuel, please write out a check to Emanuel Lutheran Church with “FME” in the memo line and mail it to the church address. Your donation will be used solely for the benefit of the concert series.
