TICKET SALES: Please note that concerts at Saint John's happen a variety of ways: many are free with a freewill donation collected, but some are ticketed. The Cathedral sells tickets only for concerts produced by the Cathedral, such as our choir's own performances of Handel's Messiah each year. Other local ensembles use our space and sell their own tickets; the Cathedral does not sell tickets for these concerts. Please read the description of the concert you wish to attend below for ticket information.
