Music at Christ Church Cathedral has long played a pivotal role in connecting choristers and congregants to each other, to the church’s history, to the Episcopalian tradition, and to God. Here, music is a gateway to the rhythm of our congregation.

Music & the Arts

Music is at the heart of our worship at Christ Church Cathedral. No matter the style or language, the goal of our music making is the same: to offer praise in the best way we can. From the congregation singing their most well-loved hymn, to the choirs and instrumentalists offering world-class concert, we offer the very best of ourselves to God.
