This concert takes place during the Cathedral's 4th Annual Crèche Festival, a unique, three-day event exulting the family tradition of the nativity scene.
Local floral designers and artists will showcase their unique crèche displays in each of the meditation chapels in the Cathedral. As light emanates from skylights above into the uniquely colored Venetian-plastered interiors, the crèche displays create the opportunity for visitors to reflect upon the spiritual meaning of the season from the moment they enter through the Great Cathedral Doors.
All crèche displays will be available for viewing before and after the concert.
