Friends of Music

From fellowship to outreach, music plays an integral role in the life of Holy Innocents’ Episcopal Church. The music of HIEC extends into the wider community as the Friends of Music, patrons of the musical arts, offer an annual concert series to raise the spirits of all who come to enjoy a wonderful array of musical talent with us. All Friends of Music concerts are free of charge and are followed by a complimentary Meet-the-Artist reception in Bishop Commons.  We look forward to seeing you there! If you have any questions or comments about our music program, please contact Dr. Sean Vogt by email.
