Concert Series

FIRST MUSIC Concert Series brings music to the community and the community into our doors with affordable, interesting, and quality programming. On October 19, 2008, the Series expanded its annual offerings to five exciting programs per season, furthering music outreach to our city and region.  We not only welcome church members, but also those from the surrounding region, many entering The First Church for the first time!

Collaborating with regional professional arts organizations: Nashua Arts Commission, Symphony NH, Manchester Choral Society, the New Hampshire Chapter of the American Guild of Organists, and community arts staple Actorsingers, FIRST MUSIC celebrates the musical diversity of the Gate City, and the rich musical heritage found at The First Church of Nashua. Artists from across the United States bring their musical talents to FIRST MUSIC in a wide variety of literature.

Our 10th season offers four concerts, and one collaborative musical offering within Sunday morning worship services. Organ recitalist Mary Dolch will put our restored Anderson Memorial Organ (Austin Organs, Inc. Opus 1406 – from 1926) through its paces. Don’t miss this tour-de-force season opener in Pops for Pipes!

This year on second Advent- Antonio Vivaldi’s Gloria will have its music interwoven into the fabric of our annual festival worship services. The Symphony NH Chamber Players, along with The First Church’s own Chancel Choir will bring the wonders of this beloved masterpiece to life, on the 10th Anniversary of the first “Christmas at First” offering. Soloists Julianne Gearhart and Stephanie Kacoyanis round out the unique program’s solo roster.

Collaborations with Symphony NH’s IN TOWN Series feature two chamber programs: one with chamber strings called String-issimo and a brass program great for the kiddos titled Pizza and Pistons. (Yes, with a pizza supper included!)

We then close our 10th Anniversary season with a gathering of Nashua-area organists to feature our landmark, award-winning pipe organ (Best of NH 2017) in a free program called Nashua Plays. (Partially underwritten through the Huber Family Trust).

FIRST MUSIC Concert Series offers something for everyone. Come support music outreach at its finest in Southern NH!
