Sharing the joy of music and the beauty of our parish with one and all.

Since 1993, The Emmanuel Concert Series has brought nationally and internationally known organists and choral ensembles to Chestertown.

The Concert Series showcases Emmanuel's beautiful and highly regarded Harrison & Harrison organ, and has presented a lively and varied mix of established concert organists and highly talented younger players. The Concert Series Committee strives for a diverse, interesting, and high quality roster of performers.


The Emmanuel Concert Series season is generally made up of five concerts between September and May. Concerts are usually on Friday evenings or Sunday afternoons.


Subscribers may purchase a full season's series for a very affordable price. The Emmanuel Concert Series is entirely supported by its subscribers and a generous grant from the Kent County Arts Council.

​Regular Subscriptions to the five concerts may be purchased for $90 per adult or $20 for children and students with ID.


One may become a Patron for $150 or a Benefactor for $200. Patrons and Benefactors are listed in each concert program.


Contributions above the subscription ticket price are tax deductible.


A limited number of single-concert tickets, priced at $20.00 for adults and $5.00 for children and students with ID, will be available at the door.
