Welcome to Music at the Cathedral!

I’m thrilled to welcome you to the Music program here at the Cathedral, where we are honored to serve as 21st century stewards of a timeless tradition. Music at the Cathedral is about so much more than stringing notes together; we aim to create something beautiful, unique and inspiring. This exquisite expression of our faith opens pathways to God, and I hope you will find something that touches your soul. Welcome!

–Michael McCarthy, Canon for Music and Director of Institutional Planning
