Most Elevating of Voices, St.John the Divine

Most Elevating of Voices, St.John the Divine

The Musical Legacy of Andrew Carnegie:A Transatlantic Celebration

Presented by Carnegie Corporation of New York and the Carnegie UK Trust, Most Elevating of Voices pairs the Cathedral with Dunfermline Abbey, Scotland in a dual concert miniseries in remembrance of Andrew Carnegie’s generous support of organ and choral music. Carnegie made gifts of more than $6 million to support the purchase of some 7,600 church organs in the United States and United Kingdom. His creation of the Carnegie UK Trust in 1913 made possible the publication of a definitive ten-volume edition of choral works by some of the greatest Tudor composers.
 
Under the direction of Kent Tritle, the Cathedral’s concert (whose twinned performance took place in Scotland on October 12) will feature music from the pipe organ, which Carnegie called “the most elevating of voices,” as well as choral music particularly associated with the Carnegie UK Trust.  The evening will also showcase the Cathedral Choir alongside the Oratorio Society of New York and the Manhattan School of Music Chamber Choir.

Halloween Extravaganza at St.John the Divine

Halloween Extravaganza at St.John the Divine

On Friday, October 25, St. John The Divine Cathedral invites brave souls to its annual Halloween Extravaganza and Procession of the Ghouls

After a screening of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920), accompanied by live organ music, the Cathedral will be transformed by fantastical creatures of the night, created by Artist-in-Residence Ralph Lee and embodied by the Mettawee River Theatre Company—loping and scurrying down the Nave, leaving delightful fright in their wake.

Sounds awesome!
