Arts at First Presbyterian Church Clarks Summit

The Arts at First Presbyterian Concert Series began in 2001 as an opportunity for church members to invite their friends and neighbors to quality artistic events. Over the years the series has featured professional choirs such as the Lyric Consort and Robert Dale Chorale, Simple Gifts folk duo, violinist Sophie Till, pianist Ron Stabinsky, Mock Turtle Marionette Theater, Presbybop Jazz Quartet, organist Mark Laubach, and many others.
 

All concerts are held at First Presbyterian Church, 300 School Street, Clarks Summit.  Concerts are open to the public and are free of charge, but a free-will offering is taken to help defray the costs of the event.


We thank all of our volunteers and supporters
