The combined choirs of Carlisle Cathedral are coming together at this year’s summer concert on Friday 21 June. This year, the boy and girl choristers are joined by the Senior Girls’ Choir and the Lay Clerks for a programme of Cathedral Classics, perfect for a summer’s evening.

The concert will include well-known classics by Haydn, Fauré, Bairstow and Parry amongst others. The concert takes place in the city’s magnificent 12th century Cathedral, beneath the iconic starlight ceiling; one of the county’s most memorable venues.

Music plays an integral part in the life of Carlisle Cathedral, with the choirs leading services on weekdays in term time and on Sundays. The summer concerts are a highlight of the musical year and regularly attract visitors from near and far. Tickets are available on the door on the night of the concert (£10 for adults, children under-18 are free) – sold in aid of the Cathedral.
