St. Mary’s Church - Home of the Indian River Festival

St. Mary’s Church, a fine example of the French Gothic influence, was built in 1902 by Island architect, William Critchlow Harris. The Harris trademark, a rib-vaulted or groined ceiling, enhances the quality of sound and archives this with the use of fir, pine, spruce, maple, and birch throughout the building.Today, St. Mary’s remains the architectural and acoustical treasure that William Harris envisioned; the perfect setting for voice and instruments to celebrate wonderful music. It has been said that the natural acoustics of St. Mary’s rates as one of the top ten places to perform in the world.Since 1996, the Indian River Festival has arranged for some of the best classical musicians in North America and Europe to perform at St. Mary’s.
