The current pandemic has severely altered and limited the landscape of Performing Arts, particularly that of live music concerts of every type.
Forty Fifth Season Postponed
2020 ~ 2021
September 7, 2020
The Cathedral Concert Series will suspend
All live performances through February, 2021.
In January-February, 2021, a decision will be made
regarding any concert(s) during Spring (2021).
The rate at which the data changes for - virus surges in communities, science around transmission,
vaccine efficacy -makes it impossible to
plan a horizon beyond several weeks.
Transmission of the virus through singing,
wind instruments, and large numbered gatherings
has had full impact on the arts.
Most Reverend Roger Foys, Bishop of Covington,
has made every effort to keep the Diocese -
its parish churches and staffs, schools,
and religious communities - all safe from the
wide-ranging and serious health threats
posed by the current
Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.
Only Holy Masses and appropriate
liturgies are permitted during the pandemic -
with attendance limits. No gatherings outside
of those mentioned have occurred
since mid-March, 2020.
This protocol will remain in place until
public health is considered safe to allow
the concert series to return to some
form of normal and live function.
The principal directive of the
Cathedral Concert Series
as noted in the mission statement,
is to present Sacred Choral
and Pipe Organ programs
“in a suitable environment”.
From its inception, a consistent and core facet
of the Series has been presenting live concerts.
For very obvious reasons of
sound, sight and experience, a substitute of
“virtual” concerts is not a viable option.
There is no substitute for attending a
concert in the Basilica.

Thank you so much for your incredible support of the
concert series over the course of 45 Years!
Your kind generosity has sustained the tradition.
