The Georgia Giannakopoulos and Peter Katsoris Kaye Archdiocesan Cathedral Music Library is a resource for Greek and Orthodox musicians across the country who wish to expand their knowledge of our musical traditions! Over the last several decades, the Cathedral Choir has amassed music from across the Greek and Orthodox traditions, including many manuscripts and editions that exist nowhere else. The library is currently “under construction” — stay tuned for updates, and feel free to reach out if you wish to be involved!

The Cathedral Music Ministry has a rich history of adding beauty to the Cathedral worship experience, performing the music of composers such as Theodore Bogdanos, Anna Gallos, Alexander Gretchaninov, Dimitrios Pappas, George Raptis, Nancy Takis, Tikey Zes,  and many more, in addition to arrangements by the late Maestro Dr. Dino Anagnost, music director of the choir for many years.  The renowned Cathedral Choir, formed by a core of music professionals and volunteers, is featured most Sundays at the Archdiocesan Cathedral and is conducted by Maestro Costas Tsourakis.
