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!
