On Saturday, February 5, children from around the region gathered at St. James for a day of music making. The day concluded with a concert in the Cathedral
at 1:00pm.  Choirs from St. James Cathedral, St. Mark's Cathedral, St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, Cross of Christ Lutheran Church, and Moorlands Elementary School participated in this unique event.

Each choir had the opportunity to share their music.  Here the St. Mark's Cathedral Boys and Girls Choir, under the direction of Rebekah Gilmore, sings "Teach me, O Lord" (Attwood).

St. Mark's is joined by the children of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church to sing "The Father's Love" (Lole).

The boys and girls of St. Stephen's choir sing a setting of Psalm 133 in Hebrew--"Hine ma tov" (Naplan).

Violist Lana Dziekonski played von Weber's Andante and Hungarian Rondo.  Here, Dr. Clint Kraus, Director of Youth Music, presents Lana with the St. James Cathedral 2011 Young Artist Award, which recognizes a young musician of extraordinary promise.

Our own Jubilate! Young Women's Ensemble, under the direction of Stacey Sunde, sings an ancient chant by Hildegard von Bingen and a movement from Benjamin Britten's beloved "Ceremony of Carols."

The young singers of Adoramus from Cross of Christ Lutheran Church delighted everyone with their lively renditions of "All things bright and beautiful" (Rutter) and "Wade in the water" (spiritual).

Our own Schola Cantorum sings Alice Parker's "Search me, O God," and the classic "Panis Angelicus" by Franck.

Cathedral Organ Scholar Thomas Varas, a high school junior, wows the crowd with Bach's Fantasia and Fugue in A minor.

All the participating choirs (including the Moorlands Elementary School Orff Percussion Ensemble, under the direction of Kelly Foster Griffin), join in a rousing rendition of the Malawian Easter song, Chimwemwe.

Congratulations to all our young musicians!
