The Cathedral Music program has a strong tradition of commitment to excellence in worship.  Both the Cathedral Choir and the Cathedral Singers provide musical leadership within their respective styles to enhance and beautify the liturgy for the greater glory of God.  

The Cathedral houses one of the city’s finest pipe organs, which remains the primary instrument for worship throughout the week.  This forty-two rank Steiner-Reck tracker instrument is also the central focus of our free concert series which is now in its eighth year.  Serving the contemporary worship program and the concert series is our newly acquired nine foot Yamaha grand piano.
