Les Miracles de Notre Dame

Medieval Paris was not only a center of learning, debate, art, and architecture: it was also a capital of musical creation and innovation, the most important in Europe. You will hear the magnificent vocal music sung within the walls of the great cathedral, as well as miracle tales, student songs, and minstrel turns performed in Notre Dame’s shadow, on either bank of the steadily flowing Seine. A feast!

A commission of the French Consulate in Boston and premiered a few months after the 2019 fire which destroyed in part the Notre Dame cathedral, it was again performed in 2022, to public and critical acclaim.

Tickets: $45, $30, & $20

Monsignor James T. Telthorst – St. Louis Cathedral Concerts Endowment Fund
$35,000 Matching Gift Challenge

In 1992, St. Louis Cathedral Concerts was established with the enthusiastic support of Msgr. James T. Telthorst, who was the Rector of the Cathedral Basilica at the time and who went on to serve for many years as a member of the Cathedral Concerts board. Msgr. Telthorst was also the recipient of the “Great Music Award” at our gala event in May of 2013 in appreciation of his ongoing commitment to and support of Cathedral Concerts.

Today, St. Louis Cathedral Concerts has secured perpetual support with the creation of an endowment fund named in Msgr. Telthorst’s honor. The Monsignor James T. Telthorst – Cathedral Concerts Endowment Fund was established through the generosity of several donors and will provide annual distributions that will help St. Louis Cathedral Concerts fulfill its mission of presenting affordable live concerts in the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis featuring world-class musicians and the finest repertoire of sacred and classical music.

A generous anonymous donor has pledged to match gifts up to $35,000, thereby doubling your giving power! Gifts to The Monsignor James T. Telthorst – Cathedral Concerts Endowment Fund should be made directly to the Roman Catholic Foundation.
