Arts Under the Dome is the long-running concert series offered by First United Methodist Church in downtown Gulfport. The series was started in 1992 as an outreach to our community. Our mission is to present first class artists that people here may not otherwise have the opportunity to see, and to present them for a reasonable ticket price in a beautiful setting – under the one hundred-year-old stained glass dome in the First United Methodist Church sanctuary. Our musicians all tour nationally and usually internationally, and most of them have never been invited to perform in Mississippi.
All concerts are in the Sanctuary Building of First United Methodist Church (across from Gulfport City Hall) on the corner of 15th Street and 24th Avenue. The building is fully handicapped accessible via elevator on the 15th St. side of the building at the alley. Concerts are open seating: Tickets are sold at the door for each concert. Advance tickets may be purchased by mail or via PayPal. Tickets are also available from the church office (corner of 15th St. and 23rd Ave.) on Monday to Thursday from 8 to 4 and on Friday from 8 to noon. For information, call 228-229-6851, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
