St. Cecilia Society of Flint


Concert Series

The St. Cecilia Society is proud to sponsor one of Flint’s most high profile and popular monthly concert series. The Performing Members of SCS include many of the most talented musicians in the Flint area.

We hope to have receptions following our regular monthly programs, with the exception of the May program. The May program will follow our annual luncheon. Decisions regarding receptions will be made by the St. Cecilia Board on a monthly basis based on public health risks.
