The Sanctuary as a Performance Space

St. Ann’s welcomes musical organizations and artists that favor the sanctuary as a venue for their rehearsals and concerts. Some have made St. Ann’s their home, such as the annual Brooklyn Folk Festival and the String Orchestra of Brooklyn. Upcoming performances by many groups can be found here. Information on the rental of the sanctuary and other space in the complex is available here.
