Cathedral Summer Orchestra
Under the baton of Cathedral music director, Dr. Mario Pearson and guest conductors, the Cathedral summer chamber orchestra is a volunteer group of musicians comprised of all playing levels from the diocese and the greater Kansas City music community. They gather and rehearse during the summer months each year to collaborate and perform music in a magnificent acoustical space for the Cathedral liturgical celebrations at the 2:30pm and 6:00pm Masses.
There are several reasons why this program was started:
Whether you are a professional instrumentalist, orchestra member, high school performer, orchestra enthusiast, we hope you will join us for some exciting music in the Cathedral's buoyant acoustical environment.
Join the Cathedral during the summer to celebrate and collaborate on great music arranged for orchestra. Contact Dr. Mario Pearson to sign up firstname.lastname@example.org
