The Cathedral Music and Arts program offers an afternoon of inspired visual arts and music for the close of the church year.

Between 2:00 and 4:00, greet the gifted professional artists from our congregation whose work graces the walls of the sanctuary in a biennial exhibition called "Color Speaks," featuring the work of Won Choi, Cecilia Denegre, John Dowell, Suzanne DuPlantis, Virginia Maksymowicz, Deann Mills, Anne Minich, and Blaise Tobia.

Stay for the beauty of a 4:00 Choral Evensong with the Cathedral Singers and organist Richard Spotts, directed by Thomas Lloyd, featuring sacred music from across the ages by Hildegard von Bingen (12th C.), William Smith (17th C.), Ann Mounsey (19th C.), as well as Charles Tournemire, Herbert Howells, and Ned Rorem from the early to mid 20th century. A reception will follow.
