Christ Church Cathedral Residency

A new community initiative in downtown Hartford

This month, we're starting a one-year tenure as Ensemble-In-Residence at Hartford's Christ Church Cathedral. Throughout the year, we'll rehearse at the Cathedral and present a series of five free, public concerts for the Hartford community. 

Three indoor concerts take advantage of the historic sanctuary space, built in 1827. Two outdoor concerts on the patio will continue a long tradition of “brown bag” concerts at the Cathedral.  

Indoor concerts take place on at 7:30 PM on Thursday, January 22nd and April 23rd, 2015. Outdoor concerts take place at 12:00 PM on Friday, October 3rd, 2014 and May 28th, and June 19th, 2015.

Christ Church Cathedral is located at the corner of Church Street and Main Street in downtown Hartford. The Cathedral is the seat of the diocesan bishop of the Episcopal Church in Connecticut, and has been a parish church for over 250 years. Drawing a diverse congregation from the Greater Hartford area and beyond, it is a spiritual center for those who work in downtown Hartford, a resource for the needy of the city, and an advocate of musical, artistic and cultural organizations that enrich the wider community.

We're so grateful to Joshua Slater, Music Director of Christ Church Cathedral, for his vision and hard work in shaping this new initiative.
