Summer Concert Series
Join us at 7 p.m. on the last Tuesday of the month of June, July and August for another thrilling concert series. This years program was underwritten by a generous grant from the Wyoming County Arts Council.

June 30 - Music for Organ & strings
Join the Genesee Valley Chamber Players and organist Tim Smith for music of Handel, Mozart, Haydn and Daniel Pinkham.

July 28 - Bach in the Chapel
July celebrates music of the organ's greatest composer: Johann Sebastian Bach. Six organists perform beloved favorites.

August 25 - Vocal Quintet Ping
As you know, the chapel has an unparalleled acoustic for ensemble singers. This year, thanks to the Wyoming County Arts Council, we are pleased to bring you Ping, a group of young singers you will never forget. Since its founding in August 2013, Ping has opened for the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and produced four sold-out concert programs at Carnegie Mellon. They have been featured in three hour-long radio broadcasts on Pittsburgh's classical station  WQED, served as ensemble-in-residence at the Strings Festival in Colorado and were featured artists at the Nantucket Music Arts Society. To learn more about this new and exciting young singing group, visit pingvoices.com.

Take a short tour of Letchworth State Park, "The Grand Canyon of the East." A recent USA Today poll voted Letchworth the Number 1 State Park in the United States.
