OUR TYPICAL CONCERT SEASON
Performances funded by Cathedral Concerts
Our aim is to build a season around four or five "pillar" concerts that are funded directly by Cathedral Concerts: "Feast of Saint Andrew", "Majestic Brass Christmas", "Mystical Voices Christmas", a major organ recital, and a guest ensemble or solo artist of international caliber. Other smaller scale concerts (chamber music, organ recitals, vocal performances) are scheduled as funding and local artists are available.
Annual Performances hosted by Cathedral Concerts
We gladly accept donations made in the traditional way!
