Venue Features

Welcoming Environment: The sanctuary of the Carlisle Congregational Church provides an ideal environment in which to perform and hear a chamber music ensemble. It has adequate space for a chamber orchestra with semi-surround seating on padded pews that places the listener close to the musicians.

Superb Acoustics:  The church sanctuary provides an excellent live acoustic environment without being excessively reverberant.

Year Round Venue: Environmental controls provide ample audience accommodation with healthy air flow and even temperature control throughout the year.

Disability Access: The church sanctuary is fully accessible, including wheelchair access at both front and side entrances and an elevator to eliminate climbing stairs.

A pull-down screen was used to show snap-shots of life in the year 1915 during the performance of Samuel Barber's "Knoxville: Summer of 1915."
