Join us for our 142nd season
as we choose a new Music Director
for The Boston Cecilia!
Each of our three concerts will feature a different talented conductor. The season will begin with a celebration of light - Lux In Tenebris - continue with a celebration of the Nativity - A Rose has Sprung - and end with the Boston premiere of Kile Smith’s luminous work - Canticle -, a setting of the Spiritual Canticle of the 15th century mystic, St. John of the Cross.
We invite you to be active participants in this exciting process and will be asking you for your impressions of each concert and your hopes for Cecilia.
