It's pretty simple - many of the pictures you see below, and the music that these new choirs help create in line with the special dignity envisioned for a cathedral  - didn't exist 2 years ago. We were fortunate to secure a $50,000 grant from the Tucker Foundation for 2018-2019. These folks who had no particular association with the cathedral believed in this project. This grant covered establishment costs and part-time staff singer stipends which will last 2 more months into the 2019-2020 academic year. We need $20,000 yearly in external funding to continue. Please support your cathedral. Donations can be made to Friends of Cathedral Music.
