Washington National Cathedral's Cathedra Choir to Perform in Sarasota
The Washington National Cathedral’s elite choral ensemble Cathedra will perform in concert on March 28 at 7 p.m. at the Church of the Redeemer in Sarasota. Cathedra specializes in music of the Renaissance and Baroque periods and is a champion of the modern-day composer.
Redeemer’s Great Music Series is presenting the concert, which will be led by Maestro Michael McCarthy, highly regarded as one of the leading choral conductors of today. McCarthy was appointed the director of music for the Washington National Cathedral in 2003. He oversees the Cathedral’s expanding music program and serves as principal choirmaster.
McCarthy was also the founder and director of the London Oratory School Schola. When it was founded in 1996, the Schola quickly became one of London’s premier boys’ concert choirs, performing regularly on the London concert platform and in the studio for both the recording and film industries. McCarthy directed the Schola in recordings for films such as “The Lord of the Rings” and “Harry Potter.”
Tickets for the Cathedra concert can be purchased for a donation of $20 at the door or through this link: http://www.redeemersarasota.org/event/great-music-series-presents-national-cathedral-choir-washington-national-cathedral/. Following the concert, attendees are welcome to attend a reception in Redeemer’s Gillespie Hall.
