With its soaring ceiling, dramatic architecture, great acoustics, Bosendorfer grand piano, and the magnificent Meritt Speidel Organ, the Sanctuary offers a wonderful venue for concerts of any type. Located close to restaurants with ample parking around the church and in the public lot on Webster Street, this is an ideal location.

The Sanctuary has a total seating capacity of 650. This includes seating in the balcony as well as on the main floor. We have the ability to install a stage over the chancel steps, as we do for such groups as the New Century Chamber Orchestra, and Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra. They have performed their seasons with us for many years. We provide risers for choral groups, a limited number of music stands, and a conductor’s podium.
