Established with the goal of bringing world-class music and performers to Saint Alban's and the city of Waco, the Sacred Arts Series will celebrate the exceptional musical legacy of the church with monthly concerts and liturgies.

The Sacred Arts Series will be self-funding and thus operate outside the scope of the regular music budget. Due to the support of generous benefactors and concert donations from 2016-17, more than $20,000 has already been raised to support music at Saint Alban's. Further donations are being sought to ensure that the 2017-18 season will be the first of many and that expansion will be possible to match the continuing growth of the parish. Your gifts will help cover the cost of singers, organists, instrumentalists, the chorister program, purchasing scores, and publicity.

All donors will receive acknowledgement in concert programs and an invitation to a donors concert and reception at the conclusion of the 2017-18 program year. The giving levels are as follows:

Friend (any gift)
Supporter ($250+)
Associate ($500+)
Patron ($1,000+)
Sustainer ($2,500+)
Benefactor ($5,000+)

Please contact the Director of Music, Eugene Lavery for further information. Checks can be made out to Saint Alban's Episcopal Church with Music Fund in the memo line.
