Music at Saint John Cantius

Throughout the year St. John Cantius Church offers music events, concerts, as well as Sacred Music for our various Masses and devotions. From organ concerts and chamber music to opera, theater, drama and the much loved tradition of Lessons and Carols! Our Sunday Masses regularly feature Gregorian chant as well as musical offerings from our several choirs, ranging from the Renaissance period and the Viennese choral tradition to modern choral works that are consonant with the Roman tradition of sacred music.
