Cathedral Organ Birthday Concert
June 17 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
The Cathedral of the Holy Cross celebrates the 142nd birthday of the 1875 dedication of its principal organ, the 101-rank E. & G. G. Hook & Hastings, Opus 801.
To honor this birthday, the public is invited to enjoy a free organ concert on Sunday, 17 June at 3.00 pm in the Shrine and Basilica of Our Lady of Perpetual Help (Mission Church) in Mission Hill. (The Cathedral is currently undergoing extensive restoration work and is unable to host the concert.)
The music of Duruflé, Faxon, Langlais, Mendelssohn, and St. Martin will be performed by organists including Leo Abbott, longtime director of music and organist of the Cathedral, as well as Laurence Carson, Mark Dwyer, Fred MacArthur, Rosalind Mohnson, and Rodger Vine.
The concert is free and open to the public. Donations will fund the upkeep and restoration of the 143-year-old Cathedral organ.
