Shepley Program of Music and Art
Longer than any other institution downtown, the Cathedral has conducted classical concerts and sacred music services—such as Choral Evensong, described below—for more than 150 years. The Shepley Program of Music and Art carries on that tradition.
The program, the Cathedral’s ministry to the arts, is a community service as well as an education program offering music lessons to youngsters. In the fall and the spring, the Cathedral hosts free concerts featuring local, national and international talents in the Gothic splendor of its nave.
Since 1981, the Cathedral’s Canon Precentor, William (Pat) Partridge, has shepherded the program, which is supported by funding from the Cathedral, the Regional Arts Commission and private donations. The program bears the name of the Shepley Family, which devoted more than 50 years of service to the Cathedral.
