Christmas at the Cathedral Basilica 2018

By Concerts at the Cathedral Basilica (other events)

Sunday, December 9 2018 3:00 PM 4:30 PM EDT

Under the direction of Charlene Angelini, the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul presents it’s 4th annual “Sounds of the Season” Christmas Concert.  At a time of the year when the hustle and bustle of gift-giving and frenzied schedules has become the norm, we invite you to come to the Cathedral to spend time reflecting on the reason why we celebrate Christmas.  Gathering in one of the most beautiful spaces in the city, we hope to allow our concert-goers, of all denominations, an opportunity to listen, to pray and to experience community, through the essence of music.
It is our specific hope to have each audience member leave our concert with a sense of hope, and filled with an abundance of joy. The combined forces of our Cathedral Choir, Archdiocesan Adult Choir and our Archdiocesan Children’s choir, will present works by Arnesen, Tavener, Pilkington and more, with an opportunity for audience participation on some well-known Christmas Carols. There's no better way to get into the Christmas Spirit than to experience the awe of the Cathedral and the magnificence of music.
