About the Concert Series
The St. John’s Summit Concert Series aims to bring a diverse array of music to the local communities surrounding Summit, New Jersey. The performances offer residents the opportunity to see and hear musicians — from local mainstays to internationally recognized professionals musicians – in an intimate setting, providing an incomparable experience. The SJSCS is a recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit that supports itself through the generosity of its Friends of Music and through the sale of tickets to attend performances.
Our Mission is to bring a variety of musical genres to the surrounding community that will appeal to a broad audience, regardless of faith, background or tradition. We view this series as a ministry through the universal gift of music.
