All Hallows' Eve: NY Phil at the Cathedral
6 PM - 7 PM
The Cathedral of St. John the Divine and the New York Philharmonic will partner this Halloween to present a free, streamed performance of classically spooky compositions by Musorgsky, Saint-Saëns and more, recorded in the Cathedral and streamed online on Saturday, October 31, 2020.
The performance, recorded in the Cathedral’s Gothic interior, is an expression of both institutions’ desire to reach out and provide cultural offerings to the New York City community and beyond during this unusual Halloween season.
The streamed concert will be the Philharmonic’s first official Halloween performance since its founding in 1842. The Cathedral, which partners with the Philharmonic for a free annual Memorial Day Concert—a tradition interrupted by the pandemic this year—is thrilled to once again join forces with this musical powerhouse.
The free performance will be streamed on the Cathedral and New York Philharmonic’s Facebook pages. Information on more Halloween-related programs at the Cathedral is available at stjohndivine.org. For information about the Philharmonic, visit nyphil.org.
