It is fitting that the restoration of St. Michael’s Cathedral Basilica should be accompanied by a renewed dedication to sacred music.

With this inaugural season of St. Michael’s Concerts, St. Michael’s Cathedral Basilica and St. Michael’s Choir School partner in presenting concerts that share the Church’s heritage of sacred music, and this beautiful Cathedral Basilica, with the wider community.

Suggested donations for concerts are voluntary so that all who wish to attend may do so, contributing only as they are able. Your support makes this possible.

All donations will be acknowledged online and in all concert programs. Thank you for your generosity.
