Believing that music is a window to the presence of the Creator, Asylum Hill Congregational Church presents concerts that feature local, national, and internationally known performing artists. With multiple events and varied styles, all are welcome to experience the music they love.

“A Passion for the Planet,” by Geoffrey Hudson. Debuted in 2019, this oratorio blends poetry, scientific prose, and sacred texts of many faiths. Following an arc from glory to darkness to hope, this moving work highlights Earth’s beauty and the causes and effects of climate change.
Sunday, April 30 | 4pm – Organ Recital
The Jolidon Organ Recital Series presents international recitalist and recording artist Damin Spritzer in concert on AHCC’s magnificent instrument.
Music for Humanity is a wonderful tie between the music and outreach ministries of our church. John and Edie Murphy were members of AHCC’s Legacy Fellowship and left a sizable gift in their estate plans. Pursuant to the interests of the Murphy family, the AHCC Board of Deacons voted to set aside $500,000 of that gift to establish a “Music for Humanity” fund, the income from which would be used to offset the cost of presenting concerts in our historic sanctuary, as well as outdoors. And here’s where the “Humanity” comes in – since presentation costs are covered by this fund, proceeds from ticket sales and donations are directed to a chosen Hartford area service agency or community program supported by the church.
