Alan Harler will be retiring as Artistic Director of the 130 member Mendelssohn Club of Philadelphia at the end of the 2014-2015 season. Unlike his usual thematic Feast of Carols concerts at St. Paul’s, Harler is taking a different approach this year. He has constructed a program around his favorite repertoire from the more than twenty Christmas programs that he has led at St. Paul’s.

Come celebrate the holidays with the voices of Mendelssohn Club in one of our most popular concert series! Experience the beauty of Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church, listen and sing along to carols old and new, and enjoy the quaint charm of the shops and restaurants of Chestnut Hill. Featuring organist Michael Stairs and the The Mendelssohn Brass.
