Mark your calendars and plan to attend the first concert of the 2016-2017 Concert Series on Tuesday, October 25, 2016 at 7:00PM. We shall welcome the Hereford Cathedral Choir of Men and Boys from Hereford, England. This choir traces its beginnings all the way back to the 13th century and is another tremendous example of the finest choirs in the Anglican choral tradition. The concert shall take place in the nave and will make use of the St. James pipe organ in various selections from the concert repertoire of the Choir. If you enjoyed the Canterbury Cathedral Choir of Men and Boys in 2016, you will also enjoy this concert presented by our guests from across the pond.
