    CONCERTS at the CATHEDRAL BASILICA, in its Fifth Season, is the re-establishment of a series of free sacred music concerts in the early days of the Cathedral Basilica. There is never an admission charged to hear the beautiful sacred music heard in these concerts. The music can be sublime and meditative or full and robust. Programs are drawn from local area ensembles and artists, or from musicians around the globe. A “Free-will” offering is shared with the performers. We are grateful for those individuals who have given substantial assistance to help this ministry each year in both monetary and in-kind giving.
