The 49th Season 
Bach Vespers at Holy Trinity

Join us for the 49th Season of Bach Vespers at Holy Trinity, in NYC's famous Lincoln Center neighborhood! Bach Vespers is steeped in the rich Lutheran musical tradition and this season is invigorated by our fullest and most expanded concert offerings to date! Named “New York’s Temple to Bach” (New York Times) and noted for its “valuable” contribution to the city’s arts community, Bach Vespers is one of New York’s most cherished cultural organizations. Boasting one of the finest organs in the city, Holy Trinity's Paul Fritts organ is  one of the nation’s premier models of craftsmanship in the German Baroque tradition and can be heard in recitals or at any of the many services at Holy Trinity.

Soon, we will launch a new website! Check back frequently for updated information, additional concerts, and access to tickets for upcoming concerts. We look forward to seeing you throughout the year here at Holy Trinity!
