The Gatherings is Philadelphia's premiere concert series of Innovative Music featuring artists from the Electronic, Ambient and Spacemusic worlds.

Passing its 30th year, The Gatherings Concert Series has grown in scope and stature, attracting enthusiastic and informed audiences to compelling performances by the world's most innovative musicians.

The Gatherings Concert Series remains the place where an otherwise fragmented people can experience the benefits of community and be together for, present at, and somehow part of the creation of a singular musical experience.

For the musician, it is a safe haven to practice their mysterious electronic art, focus on the music and enjoy a rare and intimate connection with their audience. The reverential sanctuary space, the attentive audience and the support of the organizers all act to allow the artist to reach their full live performance potential.

The 2024 Gatherings Season:

Concerts are held in the church sanctuary of St. Mary's Hamilton Village, located in west Philadelphia on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania at 3916 Locust Walk, and produced by the all-volunteer staff of The Corporation for Innovative Music and Arts of PA (CIMA of PA).
