Sacred Arts Series: Encounter beauty and music at the Cathedral

If you need time for reflection and to encounter God in a new setting, consider one of the concerts in the Sacred Arts Series at the Cathedral of Saint Joseph. The new season promises to be the perfect place to find a little respite from the busyness of life.

Cathedral of Saint Joseph Choir Director Jared Ostermann loves the series because it opens the Cathedral to the community, allowing everyone the chance to experience beautiful art and music in a non-liturgical, but still sacred, context.

“We can look back over the Church’s history and see what a central role Catholic cathedrals have played in the development of art, architecture and music,” Ostermann says. “The Sacred Arts Series allows the Cathedral of Saint Joseph to support the local arts community and to be a leader in the artistic life of the city and region.”

With the next concert date set for Nov. 2, those attending can expect to hear music in a cathedral known for its world-class acoustics.

“The Cathedral itself adds so many layers to the music—for the ear, the eye and the soul. It’s hard to put into words, but I strongly encourage people to come to a concert and experience it for themselves.”

This year’s series includes concert choirs, vocal ensembles, a string quartet and the Cathedral of Saint Joseph Choir. For more details, concert dates, and to purchase tickets, visit www.stjosephcathedral.net/sas.
