About - Benefit Concerts at Zion

Benefit Concerts at Zion presents century-spanning music for classical instruments in partnership with Interfaith Refugee Welcome, an interfaith group of San Francisco Bay Area congregations. The congregations work together to help refugees find safety, welcome, freedom and independence; partner with refugee resettlement agencies so they can do more for refugees; and engage congregations and communities to provide awareness, advocacy, direct service, and financial support.


Benefit Concerts at Zion has received financial support from Thrivent Financial, Zion Lutheran Church, and generous anonymous donors in our San Francisco community.


Benefit Concerts at Zion was founded in Fall of 2017 by members of Zion Lutheran Church and Director of Music Kyle Hovatter.
