St. Patrick’s Cathedral, “America’s Parish Church,” is both the heart of liturgical life as the Mother Church of the Archdiocese of New York and a thriving cultural and artistic institution. Promoting exemplary concert music has been in integral part of the music program through the annual Cathedral Concert Series.
The 2013-2014 season consists of four concerts and begins with the 34th Annual A City Singing at Christmas in December. This long tradition is something that should not be missed. At the end of January we have the Woodwind Celebration, our annual chamber music evening this year featuring the music of composers inspired by exotic, and sometimes foreign, sights and sounds. In March, we have the annual Irish Heritage Concert celebrating our namesake, St. Patrick. In June, we conclude the season with A Journey Through the Liturgical Year, an a capella concert featuring the St. Patrick’s Cathedral Choir.
The Kilgen Organ Recital Series remains suspended due to the absence of the Gallery Organ. Currently, we expect the series to resume in the fall of 2015.
The Guest Choir Concert Series features top-level high school, college, church, cathedral and professional choirs from all over the world. These weekday afternoon concerts are free and open to the public.
