In addition to being a vibrant community of faith, St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, located in the heart of the Museum District, is one of Houston’s most beautiful and treasured concert venues. Anchored by the St. Paul’s Choir, which has earned national acclaim in the Anglican choral tradition, the church regularly presents recitals and concerts of solo instrumental and vocal, chamber, choral and orchestral repertoire.

The annual Lenten Recital Series is presented by the  St. Paul’s Chamber Music Society, whose generous donors have supported music at St. Paul’s for over 30 years. We remain profoundly grateful to so many, including those outside the Houston area and around the country, who stay close to St. Paul’s with their support from afar. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation or if you would like to receive notices about upcoming performances, please contact Dawn Uebelhart  ( or Paul Gainey (
