Our 51st Anniversary Year!
As an outreach of the Worship and Arts Ministry of La Jolla Presbyterian Church, the LJPC Concert Series is a community service program that provides inspiring music, free of charge, to the congregation and community.
However, this 51 year old Series is not funded by LJPC, but rather through the generous offerings and donations from our patrons. Our hope is that you will support our efforts both in attendance and through donations. For more information on how to help support the LJPC Concert Series click here.
Free parking is available in the LJPC underground parking garage. Come early to be assured of a parking space!
