Music Live at Lunch

You can now enjoy a Music Live at Lunch concert in person or continue to enjoy the concerts online via live stream. All those attending in person must observe standard protocols to prevent the spread of COVID-19. These include wearing a mask, maintaining social distance, and signing in for contact tracing. NOTE: Because of pandemic restrictions, no lunch will be served. Patrons are welcome to bring their own lunch to enjoy, but must wear their mask before and after they eat.


At 12:10 p.m. each Tuesday, September through May, we offer free Music Live at Lunch. The concerts feature a variety of music, ranging from classical to jazz and music of other cultures. Currently, all performances are scheduled for the nave with a limited in-person audience. All patrons are asked to honor posted instructions for distancing and personal mask use. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, plans for lunch service are on hold. However, as always, patrons are invited to bring their own lunch.

Listen to Associate Director of Music Shiloh Roby talk with WVXU’s Elaine Diehl about Music Live at Lunch!
