Welcome to St. Mark’s and the Now Playing Newport Music Series . . . .
After a 5 year hiatus, the Music for a Sunday Afternoon Series returned in December
of 2013 as Now Playing Newport, realizing the need for a regular Music Series in
the Newport Area. The response has been great!
2015 marks the Second Season which will have a full monthly calendar of great music
featuring local and statewide artists. The small venue (seating 100) is perfect for
a more intimate and enjoyable experience for both the audience and artist, having
great acoustics. We hope you’ll make Now Playing Newport one of your favorite concert
For 2015, we may also expanding our venues for programs. Watch for details.
