We are excited to bring you the 2015-2016 Concert Season at Saint John's with a full schedule of world-class performances and musical services for the coming year. We hope to see you in our audience and congregation soon and often!

For information on our Music at Noon concerts, Evensong, or other special services with music, please visit our Music at Noon and Liturgical Music pages via the menu on the right.

TICKET SALES: Please note that many concerts are free with a freewill donation collected, but some are ticketed. The Cathedral sells tickets only for concerts produced by the Cathedral, such as our choir's own performances of Handel's Messiah each year. Other local ensembles use our space and sell their own tickets; the Cathedral does not sell tickets for these concerts. Please read the description of the concert you wish to attend below for ticket information.  
Founded in 1937, the internationally acclaimed Wartburg Choir is an ensemble of great tradition and distinction. The ensemble has received critical international acclaim for its versatility, performing some of the most challenging pieces ever written for choral ensembles. The choir has performed in such venues as the White House, Kennedy Center, the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.; Avery Fisher Hall and Carnegie Hall in New York City; Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis; Chicago Symphony Center, and in 15 European countries. The choir frequently premieres original works by composers around the globe, including Ola Gjeilo, Stacey V. Gibbs, and René Clausen.  The program includes works by J.S. Bach, Ericks Ešenvalds, Maurice Duruflé, and F. Melius Christiansen.

A native of Arvada and scholarship student at the prestigious Curtis Institute, Mr. Dunnewald’s program includes Messiaen’s La Nativité du Seigneur, Reger’s Phantasie über den Choral 'Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme’, Op. 52, No. 2 and Dupré’s Variations sur un Noël, Op. 20.  Free will offering.
The Colorado Chamber Players’ yearlong study of Shostakovich’s chamber music continues with Quartets no. 4, 7, and 11, which roughly correspond to the composer’s early, middle and late periods in his quartets. Quartet no. 4 is based on Jewish dance music, and was too controversial to be published during Stalin’s reign of terror. Quartet no. 7, the shortest of all the quartets, captures the composer’s love for his first wife Nina. Quartet no. 11 is dedicated in memoriam to Vasili Shirinsky, 2nd violinist of the Beethoven Quartet and the composer’s close friend; no. 11 is made up of seven miniature movements, played without pause.

String Quartet no. 4 in D Major, op. 83 (1949)
String Quartet no. 7 in F# minor, op. 108 (1960)
String Quartet no. 11 in F minor, op. 122 (1966)
