About the Cathedral Music Program
At the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception we endeavor to provide a model for sacred, Catholic music, firmly planted on the solid foundation of the Church’s vast, rich musical heritage.
Dr. Mario Pearson, Director
The primary focus of the Cathedral music program is to support the assembly at liturgy in the singing of the hymns and responses, and to lift their hearts and minds through the great tradition and heritage of music that belongs to the Church and edifies the liturgy.
ABOUT THE MUSIC MINISTRY PROGRAM
The Cathedral's music program has several music ensembles that lead our Eucharistic celebrations. Many of the choirs combine for special feasts, music concerts and Holy Days. Below is a list and description of all the music program opportunities.

Although the primary focus of the Music Ministry is to support the prayer of the assembly at liturgy, there is another important component to our ministry -- that of hospitality. At these times the musical experience welcomes and lifts up those who are not with us regularly for Sunday worship, but who are searching for God. The Musician's Prayer.

The Cathedral is pleased to host visiting and touring groups and ensembles from throughout our diocese, state and country who join our community in sung prayer through the following two extension programs.

Music is an integral part of today’s Liturgy. Instrumentalists, cantors, choirs, and directors are all necessary parts of our Worship experience. Through a creative Vision for the music progam, liturgical music continues to have an integral place in our celebration of the Eucharist.
