The annual MidWinter feast is the major in-house fundraising event for Music and Art at Trinity. Funds raised from the feast allow Music and Art to produce its free BrownBag Concert series. Held Wednesdays at noon (from October-May), the series - now in its 37th season - is the longest-running free concert series in the greater Cleveland area. Last year, more than 5,000 people attended these concerts.
The BrownBags provide a wide array of high-quality live music (and an excellent $5 per lunch) for a largely underserved population. Many attendees are from retirement and assisted-living communities, who may not otherwise have access to live performances of this nature. The concerts are also accessible to students and those living and working downtown. The series also provides performing opportunities for a wide variety of local musicians, including students and the wonderful talent pool of area freelance musicians.
