The St. Louis Church Concert Series is an outgrowth of the vibrant music ministry at St. Louis Church, led by Artistic Director Heather Adelsberger. We seek to present unique musical experiences for audiences within and beyond the St. Louis congregation, and to provide a range of performance and learning opportunities for parish musicians as they participate in high-level performance while working alongside professional musicians.
Our concerts also highlight our beautiful campus. Most performances take place in the main church, which was dedicated in April, 2006, just prior to the Concert Series’ inception later that fall under the direction of founding Artistic Director Mr. Paul Carroll. Our beloved 1889 Chapel is a site for chamber and candlelight concerts, and the activity center is used whenever food and drink are included in the ticket price.
Past concerts have included masterworks such as Mozart’s Requiem, special performances by the St. Louis Concerto Competition winners, and favorite works that highlight our organ.
Heather Adelsberger maintains an active career as a pianist, organist and music educator in the Washington D.C. area. She holds an undergraduate degree in Piano Performance from the Catholic University of America and a Master of Music in Collaborative Piano from the University of Maryland.
Ms. Adelsberger is currently the Director of Music at St. Louis Church in Clarksville, MD and Artistic Director of the St. Louis Concert Series.
