We can't perform for you in person but we wanted you to be able to enjoy a little of the May Festival at the Basilica in your homes. Listen to our Basilica inspired playlist and read the program notes below.
This is how you know it’s spring. The May Festival Chamber Choir and May Festival Youth Chorus share a glimpse of all May Festival 2020 programs in the light of Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption. Sacred works by Charles Ives and Bobby McFerrin, and a Youth Chorus commission from Cara Haxo whose music has been called “movingly lyrical” (Avant Music News), join a spectrum of works from Spanish and South American traditions.

VIRGIL THOMSON: My Shepherd Will Supply My Need
BOBBY McFERRIN: Psalm 23
CARA HAXO: Litany of Dreams [MFYC Commission]
