As an active member of the musical ecosystem in Washington, DC, the Cathedral Choral Society’s mission is to engage people in the extraordinary power of choral music. We value your engagement above all, and strive to make our events welcoming and safe.

As with our peer organizations throughout the city, we are closely monitoring the spread of COVID-19 in our region so that we may take the recommended necessary steps to ensure people’s safety.

As of today, Washington National Cathedral and the Cathedral Choral Society are open for business as usual. That said, we encourage you to read the recommendations laid out by the Centers for Disease Control, including washing your hands often and avoiding contact with others. Please take a moment to read all of their guidelines here.
