The 2019 Cathedral Concert Programme
Take a leisurely stroll in the gardens, and then step inside the Cathedral to enjoy a varied programme of high quality musical events enriched by the wonderful acoustics of the building. Enjoy tea, coffee and light refreshments afterwards in the company of other music lovers.
Admission to all the concerts is free of charge, however these are charity fundraising events so please do give what you can. Unless otherwise stated all donations will go to support our teaching of the island's young people choral singing to a very high standard in our new Song School in Peel.

Isle of Man Wind Orchestra and the Mannin Youth Choir @ The Cathedral
No strangers to the Cathedral, the Isle of Man Wind Orchestra with the newly formed and exciting Mannin Youth Choir offer the final concert in our series, and a rousing end to the year!
This series of concerts helps fund our teaching of music. It is our absolute privilege to teach the island's young people choral singing to a very high standard, and for this no charge is made. Additionally we fund the training of an Organ Scholar each year, and we provide all sacred music at the Cathedral as a gift to our Island community.
Unfashionably, we have to fund music staff salaries and the costs associated with running the purpose built M L Wood Song School, as well as meeting the high costs of maintaining the Cathedral's pipe organ.
If you are able please consider helping us financially. Any amount, large or small, will be very much appreciated.
Our treasured Choral Heritage - now, and for tomorrow.....
