Sponsored by the cathedral’s music ministry as part of the “Music at the Cathedral” event series, Wednesday afternoons through February (excluding Ash Wednesday) will feature organ recitals and demonstrations. These performances will feature the cathedral organist and also special guests, including Curt Sather and Zoltan Varga.
Samuel Salvador Soria has been the organist for the cathedral since its dedication in 2002. A graduate of Valparaiso and Northwestern Universities, Soria was previously appointed to Holy Name Cathedral in Chicago. He is a second prizewinner in the J.S. Bach International Competition at the Kennedy Center, Washington, D.C., and was also a prizewinner in the American Guild of Organists Improvisation Competition at Trinity Church, New York.
The aim of the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels' music ministry, under Music Director Frank Brownstead, is to develop a sacred music program that encompasses the beautiful traditions of the Church and the multiple cultural traditions of the Archdiocese.
