The Owensboro Symphony is performing a free concert at St. Stephen Cathedral at 4 p.m. Sunday. Members of the Symphony’s brass and percussion sections, St. Stephen’ chorus, and organist James Wells will perform John Rutter’s Gloria.

“St. Stephen Cathedral is a wonderful place to perform. The acoustics are perfect, especially for this beautiful choral music by John Rutter,” said Troy Quinn, the Symphony’s music director.

Art, culture, and Catholic cathedrals have a long and intertwined history. 

“Since the Middle Ages, Catholic cathedrals have been recognized as cultural centers,” said Diocese of Owensboro Bishop William F. Medley. “Clearly the first and primary meaning for cathedral is that it be a place of excellent worship and praise. As a gathering place for the people of God, any cathedral must also be a place people turn to in need – spiritual, physical and emotional need. Cathedrals are a place where the Church’s charity is manifest. As a cultural center, a cathedral can lift human spirits and feed human souls.”

The concert is open to the public. St. Stephen Cathedral is located at 610 Locust Street in downtown Owensboro.
