Archdiocesan Choir of Philadelphia in Concert this Sunday

Dr. John Romeri, who for many years ran a spectacular music program at St. Louis Cathedral, had barely landed in Philadelphia when he had already lined up a concert series at the Cathedral-Basilica of Ss. Peter and Paul. This past year has seen concerts by the Choir of Westminster Cathedral and Tenebrae, among others.

This Sunday, the inaugural year of this concert series wraps up with a performance of the Mozart Coronation Mass (K. 317), along with works by Gabrieli, Handel, Beethoven, and Philip Stopford by the Archdiocesan Choir of Philadelphia. The concert will be at 3:30 in the cathedral. Here's ticket info.

If you can't make this weekend's concert, a whole new year is right around the corner, complete with a repeat appearance of Tenebrae. These concerts are an exciting addition to the lively choral scene here in Philadelphia.
