Music Season

Home/Music Season

Music occupies an important place in the life of our church and community.

In addition to our own highly regarded choirs and liturgical music, you can enjoy concerts and recitals by visiting musicians in one of the city’s most magnificent settings.  Whether you are familiar with the sound of the choir or are about to experience it for the first time, we welcome you, and hope these website pages can add something to your appreciation and enjoyment.  Please use the menu to the right to learn more.
