Libera Boy Choir from London

Christ Cathedral is thrilled to welcome back the Choir Boys from London called LIBERA!  The distinctive sound of Libera has travelled the world in the last few years. The group’s albums have topped both mainstream and classical charts in many countries, and their recordings hold their place in the top-ten charts alongside major artists like Bocelli.

The boys who make up the vocal band Libera have been described as “normal” and “ordinary”. However, as their recordings and performances demonstrate, the music they produce is truly extraordinary. With shimmering, mystical chords and ecstatic harmonies, they are unlike any other group you have ever heard. These are truly sounds to lift the soul. Celestial sounds for a new time.

The singers of Libera who are aged seven to sixteen attend many different local schools in South London and come from a variety of backgrounds. Although they are boys and they sing, they do not think of themselves as choirboys, but rather as an alternative kind of boy band.

While the unique sound of Libera may be impossible to pigeonhole, its universal appeal has endeared the group to fans all over the world, particularly in the US, the UK, the Philippines, South Korea and Japan, where their CDs top the mainstream and classical charts and where they pack concert halls appearing in their trademark flowing white robes on imaginatively lit stages.

Last year’s concert was a complete sell-out. Don’t wait to get your tickets!!

Organist David Ball and Friends play Bach and Friends

Christ Cathedral Organist David Ball presents a program of the most beloved organ works of Johann Sebastian Bach and his contemporaries – from the flashy pedalwork of Nicolaus Bruhns to the monumental Passacaglia of J. S. Bach, and featuring performances by Dr. John A. Romeri, Dr. Ricardo Soto, and the Organ Scholars of Christ Cathedral. As a grand finale, three other keyboard instruments will take the stage with the Arboretum’s pipe organ for a spectacular performance of Bach’s rarely-performed Concerto for Four Unaccompanied Keyboard Instruments!

The Arboretum’s legendary pipe organ “Fred” was crafted by the famed Aeolian-Skinner company of Boston, Massachusetts, and is dedicated to Frederick Swann, the former Crystal Cathedral Organist who was responsible for its installation. As we anticipate the re-installation of the Hazel Wright Organ, take advantage of this unique opportunity to hear the 4,949 pipes of the Arboretum’s world-class pipe organ accompanied by three other keyboard instruments in a thrilling program of the virtuosic music of J. S. Bach and the most renowned composers of his era.
