Cathedral Concert Series


April 28, 2018, 8:00 – 10:00 PM
Chanticleer returns to the Cathedral Basilica with a revelatory sacred program entitled Upon The Rock. The world-renowned men’s ensemble shines in music that has comforted and confounded saints and sinners alike for as long as spirituality and music have gone together. Transcendent prayers of thanksgiving and consolation, psalms of happiness, and paeans of praise come together in a program that includes music by Dufay, Poulenc, Weelkes, Mendelssohn, Brahms, and many others, as well as the premiere of Pulitzer Prize-winner John Harbison’s first composition for Chanticleer.
