‘HARD HAT CONCERTS’ TO FUND RETROFIT
Historic Trinity Church, closed to the public since 2009, will fling open her great red doors for a spectacular trilogy of concerts featuring her landmark 1924 E. M. Skinner organ as well as an acclaimed acoustic for instrumental and choral performance.
The Hard Hat Concert Series, so named for its objective of raising funds for the T†SP church Retrofit Project, will take place during May, August and October of 2014. Performing groups and artists are donating their talents in an effort to hasten the return of this exquisite concert venue to public use.
The church’s congregation, birthed during the 1849 California Gold Rush with an incorporation date that predates that of San Francisco’s, laid the cornerstone for this, its fourth building, in 1892. Built on bedrock, Trinity Church withstood, unscathed, the Great 1906 and the 1989 (Loma Prieta) earthquakes.
All three concert programs will take place in the church’s majestic main sanctuary at the corner of Bush and Gough Streets in San Francisco.
General admission: $20, with additional donations welcomed.
