Summer concerts, approximately 1 hour long with no intermission, are only presented in-person and are not livestreamed.
July 29, 2021: Until further notice, based on the most recent CDC guidance regarding the spread of the delta variant of coronavirus, we strongly encourage all visitors to the Cathedral, regardless of vaccination status, to wear masks while they are in the building. Masks continue to be required for those who are not vaccinated. Those who are feeling ill or have a fever are requested to not attend the concert (refunds will be issued in those instances). Social distancing is not currently required, but there is plenty of room to spread out in the Cathedral if you wish.
Suggested donation for each recital is $18.00 General Admission / $10.00 Students & Seniors. We encourage you to purchase tickets in advance to help prevent long entry lines, but tickets will also be sold at the door.
Upon purchasing a fixed price $10 or $18 advance ticket, you should shortly receive a barcoded ticket via email from WhenNow.com. If you don't see it within a few minutes, check your Spam or Junk Mail folder.
If you use the Pay What You Can donation, your barcoded ticket will be emailed to you up to 24 hours after your order (48 hours if you order on a weekend). If you have not received your electronic ticket with barcode by 5:00pm on August 25, please bring a copy (paper or electronic) of your donation receipt to the concert.
Concert seating is first come, first served. Please note that some seats, indicated by signs, are reserved for Friends of Cathedral Music donors. Those with disabilities are invited to contact us in advance so that we can reserve seats that will accommodate your needs.
