Future Concert Schedule

Admission to our concerts is by donation (we suggest a very reasonable $15.00, student/senior $10.00). By “by donation,” we mean that we ask you to kindly make a donation of any size, but preferably of at least the recommended minimum size if you can afford it, in order to help us continue to present these concerts.

Donations: Please feel encouraged to make a donation to Musica Bella, in addition to your donation at the door. You may donate as much — or as little — as you want; every penny is appreciated. It’s really not too dramatic to say that our very survival depends on your generosity, since putting on these concerts is incredibly expensive. For more details, click here or on the “Donations” link on the left of any page. Please note that your donation is tax-deductible, as Musica Bella is a 501(c)(3) organization.

Listen to a brief recording of Musica Bella in rehearsal or concert! We apologize that nothing new has been added recently—but that will change, if and when we ever find the time to get it done. . . .

The details below are subject to change, although all the information is as final as we can possibly make it. To keep current, please join our mailing list or occasionally check back here.

HOW TO GET TO OUR CONCERT LOCATIONS:

To verify whether any of the public transportation you want to use is actually running on the date in question, you’d be very prudent to check at
http://mta.info. We try to mention transit difficulties here, at least the ones we know about in advance, but we can’t always catch every potential problem, sorry. Plus, they’re often not posted at mta.info far enough in advance for us to get the information here in a timely manner.

St. Thomas Aquinas Church, 249 Ninth Street (corner of 4th Avenue), Park Slope, Brooklyn, is right across the street from the 4th Avenue elevated station on the F and G trains. On the lower level (below street level) of the same station, you’ll find the R train, which is a train you can use to get here from the Atlantic Avenue/Pacific Street station, a major transfer point in Brooklyn that also serves the N,Q,W,2,3,4,5 trains. (When you’re on the R train, this station at 4th Avenue and 9th Street is called “9th Street.”) Click here for a Mapquest map, and here for the MTA subway map.
