Venue for Old First Concerts: Old First Church
The Old First Church, conveniently located on Sacramento Street at Van Ness Avenue and completed in 1911, provides a perfect venue for Old First Concerts to present an astonishing array of programs performed by outstanding musicians from the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. Seating approximately 450 people the Sanctuary was recently refurbished with many of the original fixtures being restored. With the added backdrop of vividly-colored stain-glass windows, and an entranceway featuring an elaborately hand painted ceiling, the venue provides an aesthetically pleasing setting as well as an ideal median between the larger local performance and recital halls, and the smaller community centers and clubs.
Our Steinway piano (circa 1980) receives regular praise from pianists and audiences for its outstanding quality and depth of sound.
We are fully wheelchair accessible.
