Music and the Arts: UPCOMING CONCERTS
At the Cathedral of Saint Paul,
choirs sing, bells peal, pipe organs thunder, orchestras soar…
and people smile.
For centuries, cathedrals have been centers for musical and artistic expression, helping to comfort, inspire, and refresh parishioners and visitors alike. The Cathedral of Saint Paul maintains this tradition with diverse music and arts programming that creates vitality for our community and neighborhood. It includes Cathedral Choir concerts and performances with the Cathedral Choir School of Minnesota, free presentations, and special events. We look forward to welcoming you!
Coming Events at the Cathedral:
Organ Concert, featuring Ken Cowan
Sunday, August 6
Cathedral of Saint Paul
We welcome the Organ Historical Society to the Twin Cities for the opening recital to their week-long convention, performed by virtuoso organist, Ken Cowan on Sunday, August 6 at 7:30 p.m., featuring our two
historic pipe organs. One of North America’s finest organists, he is praised for his dazzling artistry, impeccable technique and imaginative programming by audiences and critics alike. He maintains a rigorous performing schedule which takes him to major concert venues and churches in America, Canada, Europe, and Asia. In 2012 Mr. Cowan joined the keyboard faculty of the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University as Associate Professor and head of the organ program.
The Organ Historical Society is an international organization which celebrates, preserves, and studies the pipe organ in America in all its historic styles, through research, education, advocacy, and music. A donation of $20 per person is requested by the Organ Historical Society for this performance. All are welcome!
