Ripley Chapel Arts & Spirituality

At First Congregational Church, Winchester, Ripley Presents concerts and creative arts events have flourished despite the challenges of the pandemic. We have continued to offer compelling and relevant programming. All of our programs are live in person and live streamed, to provide safety, access, and opportunity. We are proud to announce our 2022-32 Ripley Presents Season of Events!
From high octane R&B to singer-songwriter Indie Pop, from a poet laureate’s astonishing public reading to soul-satisfying classical music, Ripley Presents offers a uniquely satisfying and distinctive roster of artists and events for the 2022-23 season.

All events begin at 7:30 p.m.

All concert tickets are $20 – both live and live-streamed. Details and ticket links will be provided closer to each event.
