Welcome to St. Paul’s Concert Series, providing excellent, accessible, affordable concerts here in the community of Walnut Creek. We have a first rate Schlicker 2-manual organ, an excellent Baldwin 9-foot concert grand, and superb acoustics in both the Chapel and the Sanctuary built of redwood, glass and tile.
We feature renowned performers from the Bay Area, and from various points around the world: guitarists from Norway, and singers from Africa (The New Life Band of Tanzania). In March we were mesmerized by Markus Pawlik performing Beethoven sonatas and the Schumann Fantasie at the piano. And most recently we had a wonderful evening of “Brilliance and Majesty: Trumpet and Organ”, performed by Robert Adams and Phil Sullivan–what a treat!
Our events are free, open to the public. Donations are welcome. Free parking available across the street.

May 27, 2017 Saturday at 7:00 pm Concert: Dr. Jisook Park at the piano, performing Bach, Mozart, Mendelssohn, and Liszt Ballade No. 2 in B minor
April 22, 2017 Saturday at 7 pm Concert: Mark and Cindy Lemaire grace our Chapel with melodious song. What a fine evening it was. Mark and Cindy are such a personable couple, and their material was was appealing because it showed their vulnerable, human side. Mark’s guitar playing is stellar, evoking “picchiettando”. You had to be there!
