First Friday Concert & Artist Series :::

First Friday Concerts are back starting July 2!


No refreshments will be served but concert attendees are welcome to bring their lunch and eat in the sanctuary during the concert. Masks and social distancing are encouraged in the church building, but are not required.





August 6 | Janice Codispoti

This popular singer and actress can be found performing in musical hot spots all over SW Ohio. In August, Janice will entertain us with some of her favorite Broadway show tunes.  A sing-a-long might break out so do some vocal warm-ups in the car before you arrive




September 3 | Richard Lynch

A popular hit in our 2019 season, Richard had audience members asking for his return before he had even packed up his gear!  His rich voice and heartfelt music made him an instant favorite!




October 1 | Bacchanal Steel Drum Band

Can’t afford a Caribbean vacation this summer?  Afraid to travel after the pandemic?  We’ll bring the islands to YOU! You won’t want to miss this popular steel drum band that’s been entertaining First Friday audiences for years!




November 5 | Edde Osborne

Originally from NYC, Edde now calls Middletown home and he brings his unique style of R&B jazz to flute and saxophone. Get a taste of Edde’s style on Reverbnation.com/eddeosborne, and you’ll be marking your calendar “don’t miss” on this date.



December 3 |Harps of Grace

Capture a moment of peaceful reflection to prepare yourself for all those holiday events by listening to a sanctuary full of harps!  Make this your official start to the Christmas Season.

*This concert series would not be possible without a generous grant from the Barnitz Fund and the support of the congregation of First United Methodist Church.  The Middletown Community Foundation, the Miriam Knoll Foundation and the Middletown Symphony Legacy Fund have also been instrumental in the success of this concert series, now in its 15th year of bringing music to our community!
