Enjoy music from cathedrals across the country: San Francisco, Chicago, New York and Washington DC on June 20, 2020.


In partnership with San Francisco Opera, St. James Cathedral in Chicago, Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York, and the National Cathedral in Washington D.C., this concert features musical performances recorded in each cathedral. 


The name “TILT” references the tilt of the sun at solstice, and a different angle on classical music. Join the celebration of light and music, and cathedrals as centers of art and solace in difficult times


Experience beautiful music in beautiful settings on the longest day of the year.


In memory of Paul Crane Dorfman (1939-2018)
