There will also be an orchestra to accompany the music by Handel, Charpentier, Byrd and Bach. This is the music that makes Royal occasions so special and so unique. The concert will be directed by Matthew Larkin. This all takes place at Christ Church Cathedral, 420 Sparks St. where tickets are available. Concert time is 7:30 pm. on Friday, May 4th.
