St. James Cathedral Cantorei with Baroque Chamber Orchestra

Out of an abundance of caution due to uncertain weather conditions and the worsening pandemic, the annual New Year's Eve Gala concert at St. James Cathedral has been postponed.

It will be rescheduled for Saturday, February 5th at 8:00pm. Please join us at that time to mark the end of the Christmas Season with joyous music by Antonio Vivaldi and Arcangelo Corelli, performed by the Cathedral Cantorei and Baroque Orchestra.

If you have purchased tickets, you may use them on February 5. If you're unable to attend on that date, please contact us and we will issue a full refund.

The New Year's Eve concert is back! Celebrate with the music of Baroque composers Antonio Vivaldi and Arcangelo Corelli. The beauty and power of the voices of the St. James Cathedral Cantorei join period Baroque chamber orchestra in Vivaldi's Magnificat and Gloria, and the orchestral strings sparkle in Corelli's Christmas Concerto. $30 suggested donation ($15 students & seniors) or pay what you can. Purchase of tickets in advance offers prime seating within a reserved section.
