A Cathedral Christmas
Saturday, December 12 - Tuesday, January 5
Since 1947, Christmas concerts by our Choir of Men and Boys have been a beloved San Francisco tradition for many – and this year while the Choir cannot sing all together, you will see gorgeous solos by our Choir Boys, quartets from the Men of the Choir, and special guest appearances by Camerata, our mixed choir, and the wonderful sound of brass with Grace Cathedral’s 7,466-pipe organ, along with other surprises. Enjoy classic carols and sacred masterpieces captured in our beautiful cathedral!
A Cathedral Christmas will be available on-demand December 12 through January 5.
And everyone gets a front-row seat! The concert is approximately 50 minutes in length.

About the Choirs
Grace Cathedral Choir of Men and Boys
Grace Cathedral has had a men’s choir since its founding as an institution in 1906, and boys’ voices were added in 1913. The centuries-old Anglican tradition of a men and boys choir has since blossomed here, as one of a handful of such choirs in the United States. The boys of the Choir are students at Cathedral School for Boys. The men of the Choir are a professional ensemble. The Choir, directed by Canon Director of Music Benjamin Bachmann, sings the 11 am Sunday Eucharist and at the 5:15 pm Thursday Evensong every week. Their latest CD of favorite carols and holiday masterpieces, all recorded live during the 2016 Christmas concert Series, is available for purchase now!
Love to sing? The Cathedral Camerata is a mixed-voice ensemble that sings a diverse repertoire of choral literature from sixteenth-century motets to works of the present day. The group serves an important ministry to the community and everyone is welcome to audition. Singers should have choral experience, read music and be able to commit to regular rehearsals. Membership in the congregation is not required. For more information or to arrange an informal audition, please contact the Music Department by email [email@example.com] or call 415-749-6332.
