The Gifts of Music Concert Series is a community outreach of Rocky River United Methodist Church.

A natural complement to the church's excellent music program, concerts began in November 2008 with the desire to bring outstanding quality performances in the arts to the greater West Shore communities.

All concerts are free and open to the public and are presented in the Sanctuary.

The concerts are supported by freewill offerings and Series Sponsors. The programming is diverse: classical, popular show tunes, instrumental and vocal performances, drama, and perhaps some jazz. We invite everyone to attend and bring a friend and join us for a wonderful season of concerts. “Gifts” should have something for everyone! Dates and performances to be announced.

The 2018-2019 Season Is Under Way!

The “Gifts of Music” Concert Committee is excited to present programming for the eleventh season of outstanding performances to our church and community.  So please mark your calendars, save the dates and help fill the sanctuary for a wonderful year of five dynamic concerts by the following talented artists.

Cleveland Bluegrass Orchestra

It’s said that The Cleveland Bluegrass Orchestra is the world’s most exclusive bluegrass ensemble.

The vetting process is rigorous. First, you must play an instrument in The Cleveland Orchestra. Second, you must be willing to play a different instrument in The Cleveland Bluegrass Orchestra. Third, and this is key, you must believe the world would be a better place with just a little bit more banjo and fiddle. If at least one of these criteria applies to you, join us for an afternoon of undiluted, genre-blending, toe-tapping joy.

Hailed as “nothing short of remarkable” and “the most exciting addition to Madison Wisconsin’s classical music scene,” Clocks In Motion performs new music, builds many of its own instruments and breaks down the boundaries of the traditional concert program.
