Charity. Concerts. Community. Since 1985.

Since 1985, we have presented acoustic music concerts on the second Friday of each month (excluding summers). We give 100% of our net proceeds to charity (with a focus on small, local social action oriented charities — i.e., homelessness, food pantries, LGBTQ youth initiatives, etc.). Our volunteer staff strives to give our audiences a chance to experience a night of amazing music in an intimate, friendly setting. Tickets for indvidual shows can be purchased on Eventbrite or by following the link on our Calendar page. Season memberships are also available. We look forward to seeing you at a show!

There is parking for approximately 2 dozen cars in the First Church parking lot. There is also on-street parking along Concord Avenue and in the Claflin Street Municipal lot behind the shops and restaurants in Belmont Center (a 5-minute walk from the church).

There is a wonderful variety of restaurants -- Asian, Thai, Italian, Mexican, American and pizza -- in Belmont Center.

Concert are scheduled to start at 7:30pm. Doors open at 6:45pm. Enter the church at the parking lot level. There is an elevator to your left and stairs to your right as soon as you enter. The concert is in our Parish Hall, on the second floor.

Each month we sell baked goods, coffee, tea and hot chocolate to our concert-goers. 100% of the money from the concessions goes to our charities. Concessions are available in the back of the concert hall from the moment the doors open till the end of the concert, and are also available to take home at the end of the night.

First Church Belmont is a vibrant community of more than 400 members and friends. In addition to services every Sunday, First Church offers superb musical experiences for children and adults, a strong commitment to social justice causes, and innovative religious education programs.
