2017-2018 Music Series

Welcome to the 2017-18 Music Series at Saint Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral in Seattle! Saint Mark’s building has always been a magical vessel for music. But it will be even more so, with the completion of the new windows and limestone cladding being installed as I write. It is anticipated to be a quieter space in which to listen to music. Come and hear how this “Holy Box” gives every sound wings, every soul a lift heavenward. I hope to see you often!

Note: In summer and autumn, 2017, the Cathedral building is being clad in limestone, its windows are being replaced, and an elevator is being installed in the southwest corner. With the exception of the concert by the National Lutheran Choir on September 29, the Cathedral Music Series is suspended until December.
