The Cathedral of the Madeleine Choir sings in the new year and the new decade! Established in 1909, The Choir consists of adult members and choristers of the Madeleine Choir School. Its principal purpose is to serve the Cathedral church of the Diocese of Salt Lake City. The Choir sings a variety of liturgical music that spans every period in music history from Gregorian chant to contemporary. They are dedicated to preserving the hallowed heritage of sacred music and sing the works of Palestrina, Victoria and Mozart regularly.

They have sung with Ballet West, The Mormon Tabernacle Choir, the San Francisco Opera and the Utah Symphony and Opera. Thus far the choir has toured internationally six times, encompassing Rome, Assisi, Florence, Munich, Vienna, Madrid, Sevilla and Segovia. They have been broadcast on radio and TV and have four CDs available with a fifth arriving soon.
The first of the Cedar City Music Arts student matinees is fast approaching. We currently have 700 students signed up to attend and we couldn't be more excited.
The matinee will run from 10 to approximately 10:45 a.m. on Wednesday, November 4th. Students will hear selections from:

Rondo Brilliante  by Franz Schubert
Violin/Piano Sonata in A Major by Cesar Franck
