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 39th season - is the longest-running free concert series in the greater Cleveland area. Last year, more than 5,000 people attended these concerts.
The BrownBag Concerts provide a wide array of high-quality live music (and an excellent $7 lunch!) for a largely underserved population. Many attendees are from retirement and assisted-living communities, disabilities organizations, students, and others living and working in the downtown area who may not otherwise have access to live visual and musical performances. The series also provides performing opportunities for a wide variety of local, regional, and international professional and student musicians.
