Patrick Wedd’s Grand Finale at Christ Church Cathedral and The Cathedral Singers Reunion Concert

Crowning his 22 years at Christ Church Cathedral, Patrick Wedd will present his final gift as organist and music director: the famous Stravinsky Mass.

The concert is also a family reunion concert for all who have sung at Christ Church Cathedral throughout all those years and we hope to see an exceptional number of singers!

Patrick Wedd will also play Symphonies d’Instruments a vent and “Berceuse” et “Finale from L’Oiseau de feu [The Firebird suite] by Stravinsky.

There is no entrance fee, but it is our annual benefit concert and we hope everyone will donate generously. Your donations will go to support the music program at Christ Church Cathedral. You can donate at the door or in advance online (https://www.canadahelps.org/en/dn/5518, select “Music Fundraising Concert”) or by cheque to Christ Church Cathedral Music Ministry: 1444 Union Ave H3A 2B8.

Are you a former singer of Christ Church Cathedral? We invite you to join us! We will rehearse on Sat., June 16, 13:00-15:30, and the “dress” rehearsal with instruments at will be at 18h15. If you would like to come, please send an email to <[email protected]> with your name and your voice so we have a copy for you (subject line: “Stravinsky”). We also invite all former singers to join us at the next day’s Sunday morning services, June 17th, when we will perform Stravinsky mass again at 10:00 (rehearsal at 8:45), and for the Evensong at 16:00 (rehearsal at 14:30) followed by a reception in Patrick Wedd’s honour.
