Each month from October 2022 to April 2023 – including two concerts in October to get us started! – we will offer free concerts by musicians chosen from among the best local, national, and even international talent. With the recent completion of the Anna Catharine Grace Memorial Pipe Organ, our season this year includes several notable organists – from Paris to Dallas!

All concerts are offered free of charge and are hosted inside the Cathedral church, located at 2120 3rd Ave N, Birmingham, AL 35203 (parking information here). (NB: The November 5 concert is in the CLC Great Hall; enter through the car gate on 22nd St N, then down the ramp, and in through the double doors to the second floor.) We encourage all to dress in “smart casual” or better. Consider combining your concert attendance with supper out at one of our fine downtown Birmingham restaurants. Off-duty police security will be on site at the Cathedral during each concert, for everyone’s safety and comfort.
This series is made possible due to your generosity!
