Organ Demos are Back!
Join Cathedral organists Thomas Sheehan and Rebecca Ehren every Monday in the Great Choir at 12:45 pm as they “pull out all the stops” in exciting and informative organ demonstrations.
Explore the musicians’ console, hear some of the 10,647 pipes in action, and learn about the organ’s history in making the building come alive. This demonstration is free for those who have purchased Sightseeing admission; these demonstrations are not webcast.
On Wednesdays and Thursdays at 12:45 pm, we open the Great Choir to either guest choirs or guest organists. Since the schedule is designed for flexibility, please check the Cathedral calendar for exact dates and times before you visit.

Guest Worship Choirs
We welcome choirs that are proficient in the Episcopal tradition to perform for any of the Sunday choral services during June, July and August.
Choirs applying for Sundays in June and July commit to singing both the morning Eucharist (11:15 a.m.) and the afternoon Evensong (4:00 p.m.). Choirs applying for Sunday in August sing only the morning Eucharist service (11:15 a.m.).
