Something Old, Something New: a concert to benefit the extensive restoration of the 114-year-old Cathedral Organ

St. Mary’s Cathedral, Kingston, will host Something Old, Something New: a concert to benefit the extensive restoration of the 114-year-old Cathedral Organ on Sunday, May 26, at 2:30pm.

Integral to the cathedral’s grand acoustics and architecture, the organ has been “the voice of the St. Mary’s Cathedral” since its construction and installation in 1905. It is a centrepiece of the musical heritage of Kingston and the surrounding region.

Music for organ, piano, solo voice and choir will be performed under the direction of Jeffrey Moellman, who will be joined by Cantors of the Cathedral, Sammy Johnston on clarinet, and members of the Moellman Family playing violin.

As well, the new community children’s choir, the Cathedral Youth Singers, will make their formal concert debut, accompanied by Kingston pianist Clare Miller.


Admission is by donation. Tax receipts will be issued for donations of $25 or more.

Refreshments will follow this varied and exciting performance.
St. Mary’s Cathedral is located at 279 Johnson Street (at Clergy) in downtown Kingston.


Inquiries for graphic media or interview should be directed to Jeffrey Moellman, Director of Music and Organist, St. Mary’s Cathedral. Please call 613-546-5521 ext. 7; or email musicmoell@gmail.com.
