FIRST•music is First Lutheran's concert series. Started in 2009, FIRST•music has presented a wide variety of concerts and events, from jazz to Bach to hymns. All events are free, and are a gift from the church to the community.




2017-2018 Season


In 2017-2018 FIRST•music will return to First Lutheran’s own space: our new church building at Fifth and Washington. We are grateful to the many churches who lent us space over the last three years, but can’t wait to get back into our own space! We hope you also are excited to experience this new space, which has been specifically designed to support assembly singing and other music. Events will include:


  • A hymn festival commemorating the 500th anniversary of the Reformation

  • A recital by violinist Andrew Sords

  • Jazz Piano concert by Bradley Sowash

  • Our annual Advent Music

  • Quire Cleveland

  • A piano recital by Brian Wentzel
