St. John’s Concert Series
Frances Conover Fitch, Artistic Director
2018-19 34th season


Our first concert was on Sunday, September 23rd at 4 PM. This is part of Concert Across America to End Gun Violence, a project of Stop Handgun Violence. We enjoyed the music of Jake and Taylor Armerding, folk musicians from the Boston scene, and also heard short messages of hope and inspiration from John Rosenthal, Founder of Stop Handgun Violence, and a representative of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts’ anti-violence campaign.
